Joy's husband was terrified of this sickly pink chair she had lugged home from the thrift store one day. She promised him it wouldn't stay pink for long, and that she totally knew how to reupholster it. Except she didn't.
So Joy googled and researched and bought books and tools and waited until her husband went out of town, which, in her words: "Gave me the freedom to cuss and scream and turn the living room into a craft room while watching all seven Harry Potter movies and drinking several bottles of wine and not have to 'splain nothin' to nobody."
And everything turns out fantastic in the end! Except Dumbledore dies. Oooh, I hope that wasn't a spoiler! Check out the progress on her blog Girl v. The World.
