Finished a few projects tonight and decided to share since I had some time before bed. I really should have waited until the morning to take pictures because, although I'm not a professional photographer by any means, I do know natural lighting makes a world of difference, so excuse the poor quality...
Here is a wooden high chair (pictured in the play room) that I picked up at a garage sale for Cutecumber. Would you believe I only paid $2!
Of course it did start out as a gold, spray painted, monstrosity. Eeek! It's almost as hideous as the table cloth I use for crafting ;)
I had some red paint left over and didn't even have to sand it because the spray paint didn't cover well and had soaked into the wood, leaving it a bit rough and grainy.
And remember this painting I got for $6?
I used chalkboard paint (free from my ils garage)right on the foam board backing that came with the frame. I had to wait 2 days to use it. That was the hardest part! There is a chalkboard of similar style and size at Pottery Barn for $99, and although you can't see it in the photo, the moulding on my frame is much nicer. When I pulled it apart, I saw that it was framed at Hobby Lobby. (Wonder if my friend Nicole did it?) Anyway, I spent a total of $6!
King of Pop quiz...
Q: "Who's bad?"
Stay tuned, because I also found some other great things at garage sales and thrift shops today, including a bowling ball for $1.50! I plan on making a yard ornament tomorrow. I also painted one of the plaster pieces I picked up on Thursday and hung it in the laundry room.
