I found an IKEA chair at Goodwill that looked perfect for painting.  Here is my gnome/mushroom inspired chair.

American Clay Paster Bags- June Challenge

 The Challenge Material for the month of June is cloth bags used for packaging for American Clay Plaster.  Up until recently, they were made from cloth which lends itself easily to repurposing.  The cloth is a soft canvas material.  American Clay Plaster is now packaged in woven plastic bags, similar to the challenge material from the month of April.
   The Repurposing Project is sponsored by Sustain Eco Interiors and Design in Hood River, Oregon.
