Redone

My $10 bench from Craig's List got a new paint job.


And it converts to a desk.

My $20 Craig's List dresser also got redone.

They both look fabulous from far away in dim lighting.
My painting skills are not the best.

But it's about time these got done!
They've been sitting in my garage for 3 months.
I was touching up the bench/desk in Sally's room
the night before my family got here.
Apparently I need deadlines.

Holy crap, those are awesome!! Especially that desk. What a find. And you'll be happy to know, I'll be mailing out some bows tomorrow. I can finally leave, lol. Unfortunately I don't have the silver and gold ribbon but that should be next week, fingers crossed. Thanks again, for your patience.

I love these pieces of furniture, you'll probably never find a dresser as cute as that one! I thought it looked awesome in real life. Thanks for all of the pictures!

isn't craigslist the best? I love the green and especially the fact they are REAL WOOD-- all too often that's hard to find these days.

ps: when did Sally get so little girl like?!!

2. I didn't mean I'm going to copy everything you do...although I really really want to. I meant I already have that green as an accent in my new bedroom set. But love Sally's better! Stinkin' cutest dresser! Is she in a big girl bed? Afton is...I need to share
