New identity

This was a fun little project because it was for a friend, which I don't often do, not because I don't want to just because usually my projects are for random strangers I've never met. This is a pottery barn children's table that was accidentally left outside overnight. Well here in the south that isn't good. There could be absolutely no sign of a storm and boom you've got 10" of rain like that. So I wanted to give this table the same purpose with a new identity. Something it could be proud of. What better than a namesake?
First I sanded down the beat up worn down rained on top, next I put sticker letters on the table then I spray painted it white, then I used a staining pen that you can get at any big box store and filled in the letters, finally I used minwax stain lightly all over it to give it a warm look.

***Rockin' Chair****

I love thriftin' through the Goodwill and other stores like it. I came across this little number and it was like I heard 80's music start to play, leading me to this old fixer upper. I brought it home and started immediately. Every now and then I see a piece that I know what I want to do the second I see it. This was one of those items. 04-10+12.34.22.jpg" /> There wasn't much prep work on this piece. I vacuumed the seat and back (They were eh stinky) and washed the wood. Then I spray painted it white and covered the seats with this very fun and trendy fabric. I love this. I can see it in a nursery or as an accent piece in many different settings.

So you remember these super 70's 80's tv consoles?  Yep me too, they're everywhere again these days just with a new wardrobe on.  Since t.v. cabinets have kind of gone extinct (as far as using them for t.v.'s anyways) these bad boys have made a retro come back!  Don't she look great in her new style?  I thought so, either way this console has a rebirth and only cost me 99 cents, yes less than a pack of gum!
