I will begin this post by saying I'm sorry for tooting my own horn, but am truly bending over backwards right now patting myself on the back. I just dislocated my shoulder. I have never done something so crafty in my entire life. I love to color with the kids and play play dough. I can cut out a mean shaped sandwich with a cookie cutter. I can sew a button on a shirt if it falls off, but that is about it. So, me doing this to a chair~it has to go down in the history books. I did have a bit of help from Gary, but 90 % of this was done my me.
I found this chair at a garage sale for $8.00.
It stunk...smelt like cigarettete smoke. Gag!
I sanded it down.
Gary took an inch off the legs of the chair...it was too tall for Layla's desk.
I recovered the crusty smelly seat....
with a pillow case I used to sleep on when I was a kid.
I had a little helper too.
I painted it pink...requested by the princess we purchased the chair for.
We put the seat back on...and there you have it!
It was fun, and now I know I can do crafty stuff, I may do more soon.
Most importantly, Layla LOVES it!
Oh, and I found the desk for $20. On Craigslist.
