She had some leftover wood and offered it up to anyone else who wanted to make some of their own. So, turns out that Debi was getting beautified in a salon that is actually within walking distance to my house the next day (which is pretty amazing because our schools are actually a few cities over!). Debi actually brought in four pieces of wood to her hair appointment and I met her there to pick them up. When I tried to pay her for them, do you know what she said? She said, "We teachers have to help each other out." Could not agree more! So visit my new bloggy friend room twin at her blog and stop by her Facebook page too.
Here are my finished seats:

I have to give a shout out to the hubs who really did all the work while I sat next to him holding down the fabric very serious-like. I went with a black crate and dark fabric to keep it clean looking for as long as possible. I'm planning on using them under my reading table. I'm hoping that it will reduce the amount of bruising I get from four sets of little legs swinging under the table! And if that freakin' fire marshall even tries to tell me I can't have them...well, let's just say it won't be pretty...
Back to work tomorrow. I wonder if I can fit in all the stuff I planned on doing this summer into one afternoon? I think I'll give it some thought at the movies ;0)
