The Continuing Saga of Reupholstery
Removing removing removing. I'm starting to feel sad. Like I'm disemboweling the poor thing.
I went to a Cancer research fundraiser garage sale at our Lawrence County Fairgrounds and got this great little mid-century table with magazine holder underneath. There seemed to be something oily and sticky on one of the wheels. It seemed like a bit of black garbage bag that someone had tried to get loose with oil all stuck around one wheel. I was able to pry it out and get it clean with some ammonia + dish soap + water mix that I always keep in a spritzer. It is great for getting spots out of the carpet, or if I have an extra greasy pan I'll give it a spritz. I had intended to re-sell this because mid-century style is hot, but I just love it too much. And it is perfect for my crafty bits. The formica top means I don't need a coaster, I can put my coffee cup right on there!
