MY MONEY PERSONALITY: Security-seeker GOAL: To restore and reupholster two antique chairs that were passed down to me from my grandmother
VALUE OF GOAL: R6 000
WHY I MIGHT (OR MIGHT NOT) REACH MY GOAL: I recently did some research into the furniture restoration process, which ended in disappointment. I looked at how much it would cost me and realised that this project would have to hold off until my next raise. I then came across two guys at a Jo’burg market who recently started restoring old furniture. They have made stunning things so far and because they’re new kids on the block they quoted me (for a full reupholster and restoration) at a price I can afford. It might still take a few months of saving but I’m positive I’ll achieve this goal in 2014. Watch this space!
