Happy New Years, Vultures!|
So, at Midnight, when most people were getting nicely smashed in celebration of new years, what was I doing?
My birdy, Aya, is helping show off the nice "new" papasan chair I pulled out of the dumpster. It needed very minor repairs- some of the bars came un-stapled so I took some 1 1/4" wire brads and re-nailed them down. The only major problem it has is the bottom bar on the base was cracked in two, but since its the base, it doesnt get as much stress as the top portion. I re-nailed it, strapped it with thin rope, and used really strong two part putty to bind it all together. It's nice and tight now, but could use more putty in areas for strentgh (I ran out...) All it needs now is a cushion. Too bad they're expensive, so I won't be getting it for a few weeks.
I'm thrilled. My old chair finally died a few months ago and I got a replacement chair that is this foldout thing and rather uncomfortable. I'm thrilled to have found a new papasan. They're wonderfully comfortable. I seem to have a nack for finding these things. This is the second one I've found. Hehe, the first one I found is in the background of the picture. Still holding up fine even after two and a half years, no cracks or loose nails. ^^
