GEEZ............


I finally finished my little project I have been blogging about for weeks.
Really, it was, just a small project.
Somehow, I ended up with way too many "redo's".
My daughter needed a new desk for school.
Not wanting to pay the hefty $248 for a new one, I chose to scour the thrift stores.
I found this one for $40. 

Before

I have never had an issue with spray paint - until now -  and, we won't go there.
I ended up sanding it down and repainting with a brush.

Below is the result after 3 coats of glossy black.

I purchased the chair below from Rooms to Go Kids for $39.

Before

After


Look a tiny bit different?

My husband built and added arms.
What you see is the second set of arms.... I changed my mind on the style of the first ones.
(Luckily, I have a very understanding husband)



My third "redo" was the cushions........
Using leftover fabric from my sewing room remodel (post for another time),
I made the back cushion and was not happy with the fit, soooo....
yep, made another.



 Just for fun, I added buttons to the back.

And I am DONE!

Adorable! That monogrammed chair is so cute! I want one. I understand about the painting. I painted just a chair this week and it was a long process. I'd rather sew! Thanks for sharing. Happy Sewing! :o)

You did a great job! That turned out beautiful! The French toile patters in my favorite and I did the nurseries of both my children in it. It comes in so many great colours.

Visiting from the Tea Party. You have a great blog!
