Spontaneous market buys
So, I went a little crazy at the flea market and I bought this rocking chair, couch and foot stool for an absolute steal. It's been 6 months, and they're still sitting in my garage.. It seemed like a good idea at the time to attempt this crazed DIY thing, but I'm stuck. I don't know what to do, and I don't have access to many tools. Can someone please help!?
