Good morning everyone.
I thought that we would have a little fun today
Throwback Thursday post.
I chose a little desk that I did two years ago
when I was creating Miss A's space in our new home.
I absolutely love this little desk and you can read about it
It was originally purchased at Good Will for $25
was our first thrifted furniture piece to be updated.
The desk was sound but the wood was in poor shape.
So, I set about priming and painting it.
Then I got this brilliant idea to "funk" it up a bit.
After all it was going in a little girl's room
the more fun the better.
So she received a different pastel color on each leg
none other than - Polka Dots.
The top was then painted pink with white polka dots
the best part of all
a black and white checked border.
I think it just sets it off.
I painted the drawer pink also and gave it some white polka dots
The hardware just needed a little polishing
as it was still perfect.
The inside of the drawer was mod podged
some really fun polka dot themed wrapping paper.
And here she is....
I think I am so partial to this piece because
I put so much creativity into it
instead of just leaving it plain.
She loves it
alas, I think she may soon be outgrowing it
as she is soon entering her pre-teen years.
And we all know how grown up these pre-teen girls can be.
So this piece may be finding a new home soon....
Have you done something that your family is outgrowing
you are sad to see it leaving?
Or, did you re purpose it for another use?
