an after without the before...

I scored a must have at a garage sale last week and only paid $5.00 for it. As you can imagine it had the most awful upholstery..think some 80's style tapestry. After I removed that it had some faded shambled pink velvet upholstery on it. I picked up some home dec fabric and quickly recovered it. I love my cheap find!!I wish I would have taken a before, but it was one of those projects where you just wanted to hurry up and make it look better!!I bought Maxton a little table set from Ikea back in March and finally got outside to give it a couple coats of paint. I figured he would enjoy a little table to color or play at, then someday maybe if we have a little girl it would be perfect for tea parties! I decided to paint it white to match the crib, and I still plan on making some cute little cushions for the chairs. I've sat Maxton up to his table and all I get is an ear to ear smile. It's too cute! In other news, I'm surprised that he has been in such a great mood. My little man has 3 new teeth! I always heard that once they get one the rest are soon to follow...well, that's true. The 3 all came this last week!
