I love junking. When I was a kid my dad would go to other neighborhoods and bring back the best stuff. He would repair them, clean them and claim it as his own. Well I guess I have inherited the gene also. My dad calls it trash digging, I call it treasure hunting.
Whatever you call it, my husband has put up the caution tape, literally. I came into the garage and there was yellow caution tape surrounding all my fines. I have a vanity, two papasan chairs and what I like to call, a reading table. The caution tapes means ~ Caution, get this stuff out of here or it’s going to the dumpster! He likes to give me hints without really saying it verbally.
So I started on the vanity. Which costs me $15.00 at the local Goodwill. Originally I thought it would look nice in my bedroom, but the roommate (hubby) said no. So I sanded down the top because it had cup rings on it and I was only going to restain the wood. Sometime during my trip to Home Depot, my mind drifted to off white acrylic paint. So I decided to chalk paint the vanity for my granddaughter. Chalk paint is latex paint with Plaster of Paris mixed.
J is only two so I am wondering if she’ll be a diva and enjoy the fruits of my labor.
wow – beautiful job! She will love growing up with it.
Thank you. I hope she does. I have a little while to find a chair for it before she needs one. The hunt continues.
good excuse to keep shopping!
Nice job. Looks like the perfect place and won’t she just grow into that dressing table!
Thank you. She sure will. Thanks to the chalk paint the finish is like stone. I don’t see it coming off no time soon.
