Furniture Upcycling for the Starving Student 101

I picked up a recliner chair for The Vegan Princess, my favourite Starving Student, at an auction for $10 - cheap because of this tear in the upholstery.
I sewed up the hole, stitched on some doilies and voila!  I didn't care for it with the two bottom doilies added but The Vegan Princess liked it so I left them there.

Cute idea for the chair. I love to recycle/upcycle. I think those who feel they always have to have new and "the best" are really missing out on the best. I'm nearly finished my coffee and my jars are sterilized so I'd better get busy. This morning I'm making raspberry jam and FROG jam before I go picking more raspberries.
