To my surprise, while perusing the shelves at the local Salvation Army store with my "Thrift Queen" partner, Shari of Swinging On A Star Creations , we literally fell over the boxes of chairs that were stacked on the floor. They were unsold stock from Target.....yes, TARGET!!! They were priced at $4.99 and $6.99. Of course, I took them all home....
Here sit the pieces ready for painting and assembly.
Next step....lots of sanding, priming and painting in a ladybug design and finally assembly. I have to admit, I had a few extra screws left over.....oops!
I then found a pair of red fairy wings at the Dollar Store that I knew once embellished would add a touch of whimsy to the auction item. So, I purchased 1" black furry balls and glued them to the wings, backed them with black felt circles and then added a twist of tulle.
I completed the auction package with a ladybug pillow and blanket, ladybug purse and a ladybug stuffed animal.
And, on display for the auction...
Little Miss Ladybug Girl raised $275 for neonatal care!!!
