This beauty came from a local thrift shop….I could kick myself because we removed one JUST like this from our old house and donated it…shoot.
I scratched it up with sandpaper, sprayed a bit of primer on it, then spray painted it! It’s all finished and hanging above the table in the schoolroom! I’ll be posting pics of that and my most recent chair re-do soon.For TONS more perusing of others’ thrifty treasures head on over to Rhoda’s at Southern Hospitatlity!
Yay! Another faboulous chair…for 4.00 (of course I haggled 🙂 ) Anyways….I so wish this beauty was finished but as you can see below…there was a little bit more to it than meets the eye….ughh. It will be worth the wait though!
The other chair was given to me too and the drawer goes to a desk that I purchased for $20.00. It is going to be my crafting desk…I’m super pumped about that!….but back to the cutest chair ever makeover……
The kids and I washed and scrubbed this down. Then I sanded the thick painted spots….and sprayed a little primer on it.
At this point I began to waiver away from my choices of ‘black’ or ‘heirloom white’ and started to think like a crazy happy mom and decided on THIS!
It is so happy and cute in my office slash “soon-to-be craft room” corner. And I think my little pillow looks right at home! Remember it?…..take a look here. My kids love our happy chair already!
Now on to the desk! I found this in the basement of the estate sale (the other place no one goes). It was in the unfinished area piled high with uhlotuhjunk…… I don’t have a great before pic…but you saw the drawer and here it is already sanded a bit.
knobs will be coming tomorrow after a quick stop at Hobby Lobby….they’ll be 1/2 off. This desk is so quaint and is the perfect size for my sewing machine and craft stuff. I will be working on this area and hope to keep the updates coming! 🙂
