This summer is passing by so quickly. I have a long list of projects that I wanted to complete before we start with our usual school schedule. Some of the projects have been crossed off the list.
My daughter's desk chair had seen better days. It was a blue tweed material that had gotten pretty yucky!! It was never very nice but it had gotten worse.
The actual chair was not in bad shape so I decided to recover it. I removed the pieces and pulled them out of the plastic shell.
I recovered it with a fabric that a friend had given me. It is exactly her style.
The finished project:
Her bookshelf was next. It was a laminate bookcase that needed a new life.
I used the free sample of paint from Valspar and made it pop with color. The backing is cardboard and she did not want to change it to bead board. I don't know what's wrong with her. LOL~ She says it's not her style.
We decided to Mod Podge some vintage book pages onto the back.
The torn pages were her addition. I let her do whatever she likes. This is the final product.
I love the color, it's a fun color. The bookcase was moved to a different spot in her room. The little alcove in her room now has this arm chair, in natural, from Ikea.
Now we are painting my son's room. There are many projects that I need to complete to make his room fantastic. It's been the same way since he was 7 and now he's 14. It was due time for a change. We have started by priming and painting his ceiling which was a bright blue.
On the to do list:
New bed~with shelves~Pottery Barn style but much less expensive
Desk~I want to use some cubby shelves and a door slab for this
Different tv arrangement~not sure what we will decide on for this
This is what has been keeping me away. Busy days but I love having the time to accomplish these projects.
Hope you are all enjoying your summer!
