Map Chair

My beautiful Sister recently found an uber cool map desk at a garage sale. It's in mint condition and I want it, but until I successfully steal it from her i'm thinking about making one of these chairs. Super coolth, no? I saw it here  at Roddy & Ginger. 


You can see a sneaky of Amy's desk here along with the beautiful lamp she has just hand crafted. I think you'll love Ames, I do.

  3. Oh I don't believe it - I picked up some kiddo chairs and some maps recently that is exactly what I'm going to do with them. I must have seen that somewhere and stored it away in my conciousness - don't believe me? http://notchkas-wardrobe.blogspot.com/2011/05/coffee-and-op-shopping-again.html and http://notchkas-wardrobe.blogspot.com/2011/05/flea-market-finds.html I guess I need to get started!
