The other day I was heading home from the library with my kids when I saw a garage sale sign. I followed it . . . and that garage sale led me to another one and then another one. Two hours later I was heading home with this:
I still don't know why I bought it. I guess I saw some potential in it . . . and it was only $5.
This was one of those projects that I knew would never get done unless I got it done right away. So after getting it home I cleaned it up, took it apart and then later that night after the kids were in bed I primed it.
The next day I painted.
I used Pistachio green Krylon spray pain. I love spray paint! It makes painting SO easy. And all that packing paper that I saved from our move three years ago finally came in handy.
After letting the paint dry over night it was time to put this thing back together. I'm so glad I had my "before" picture to reference or else I'm afraid it would still be in pieces. I had the idea to modge-podge some green and pink fabric (it would have matched perfectly) to the seat of the chair. I debated it for a while but then decided I'd better try and keep it gender neutral.
I love how it turned out. I love that I got it done before it had a chance to get on my to-do list, and my kids LOVE having their own special work space too.
