Yesterday was my girlfriend Traecys birthday and I had been looking for a great little chair for a while to redo. She pinned one a long time ago and said someone should make this for my birthday... Well I hope she was serious. This is one of those times when I wish I had the for thought to take before pics because the transformation is incredible. It was a very ugly old 70s office type chair with a rough beige ttype fabric. I painted it kyrlon watermelon then. and recovered the cushion in this great zebra print. Then a few months ago I had found some great vinyl damask wall decor at shopco on clearance. (same as I used on my dresser. I will show you that in a minute) . But I put one of those on the back and boom super cute amazing girlie chair to throw in what ever room.
I had also bought a dresser and when me and my girlfriend Pat went to pick that up we saw one of these plain little tables that I see at my gw all the time. It struck me boom bistro table for my patio. I came home threw some of my outdoor primer and left over paint from my Adirondack bench on it and another vinyl wall decor I found on clearance under the glass and super cute bistro table for my patio. I think I am going back today for the other one they had I will saw the legs down and make it a coffee table size one for bye the pallet sectional.
Here it is with my chairs from the flee market and my tv cart turned drink cart. I also made a outdoor rug with some canvas from walmart and painted it with stripes of my primer and paint. I wanted burlap but alas walmart fails me again
I grabbed two owl figurines and threw a coat of paint on them and there is currently a war going on in the house hold as to who gets these cuties
that wasent all I found for the day though my dresser I bought (very inexpensively) was this gem...
I painted the base of the dresser the same grey as mine them the drawer fronts white and threw a coat of black over the hardware (until I can buy new) This bad boy is going to replace my hubbies dresser. And even though I didn't find my dresser on this particular trip to gw I have to share the finished product with you guys
I finally finished it!! Those are the decals I was talking about. I used the decals to cover the holes for the second set of knobs and on the other side I had some inexpensive knobs I bought a while back I painted them black and filled the second hole with putty and painted over it boom perfect dresser. Now I just need to have my hubby get home and help me heft in the body of his new dresser and help me heft his old one out for a make over ;)
Until them I am going to enjoy this great morning out on my Adirondack bench with a cup of coffee.
