Thrift Store Chair Redo- Finally FINISHED!

So you guys remember this old ugly chair I got from the thrift store right?

This chair was the first of this style I have ever I was definitely up for the challenge! Not only did it have an upholstered front and back, the cushions were tufted too.  It was quite fun taking it all apart and redoing it. I have all intentions of doing a tutorial on how I did this revamp but I will have to post that later because trying to figure out how to explain everything in writing takes a long  So check out how it all came together!

Had to strip it all down. Then I sanded it really well and spray painted it silver. This chair has been thru it in its former I couldn't sand all the knicks out of it...and the paint actually highlighted all the imperfections even more...but I guess it gives it a little

This one took me awhile to complete but I'm quite proud of my work since this was my first time attempted this style! This beauty will be in my office. Next project is to make a matching side table! Stay tuned for that and the tutorial! :)

My DIY Baby Shower Gift: Personalized Chest

Yesterday I attended one of my friends baby shower.  For her gift, I decided to do a personalized wood chest.  She mentioned the colors of the babys room would be light green and light blue so I made sure I stayed in that color scheme.  Also, the theme for Jaden (her baby son on the way) would be royalty so everyone has been calling him Prince Jaden.  I decided to play off of that. I purchased a wood chest from Michaels. Regular price is $50 but of course Michaels always has a coupon around somewhere. Then I purchased the letters and other supplies and got to work. Check out the before and after!


The mom-to-be and everyone at the shower loved it! Visit your local craft store and see what you can make! :)
