Well, I have been searching for a vanity for my daughters room and I ran across this desk at Goodwill for only $10. I wish I took a before picture, but I was so excited to get it finished It totally slipped my mind. After I loaded it into the back of my van, I ran up the street to my favorite estate store and picked up the chair for $5, then one more stop to pick up a couple cans of spray paint. Once home, I pulled in the garage, unloaded my loot and got to work right where I dumped it. I wanted to have it finished by the time my daughter returned from school, so she would be super suprised!! A couple coats of spray paint to both pieces and they were already looking adorable. I then used some scrapbook paper I had laying around to decoupage the three drawers. The green paper is actually much lighter than in the picture and it has whiet polka dots. I used an old shower curtain to cusion and skirt the chair and trimmed it out with white ball fringe. Project finished!! I can't tell you how excited she was when she walked in her room. She immediately started filling the drawers with all of her pretties and goodies.
I'm a wife and the mother of three very energetic children. Just one year ago we decided to sell our comfortable ranch home to embark upon our new journey. We bought a 150 year old run down farmhouse. A dream come true for me, but by no means has this been easy!!!
