I have said before that I have m-a-n-y nieces and nephews.
And great-nieces and nephews.
And I love to spoil them every way I can!
Years ago I found this cute little desk in a thrift store for two of my [little] nephews. I painted it this chocolaty brown, painted a bench to go with it, and upholstered its seat in a fun leopard~they outgrew the cute pairing LOng ago. It’s now passed down to their two little sisters, who are now 8 & 5.
But it wasn’t “girlie.” Enough. For
I disassembled the entire desk.
I liked the chocolate, and the “leopard.” But instead of a leopard seat, I covered/upholstered the body of the desk in some pink leopard FABRIC!
The bottom of the legs were a bit broken, so I cut them even on the chop saw, then added little balls! And I painted them with a bit of whimsy!
Then I painted the top. And added my sweetie-pies’ monograms to it!
I found this petite vintage ice cream parlor chair very cheap in the flea market. I painted it pink long ago, but then it just sat on hold. I pulled it back out, cut a “seat” for it, sewed a cover with ruffled/welting–and padded and secured it all. Hmmmm–? Needs some zushing! I added a plaid ruffle. Leopard and Plaid go together–right?!?
And for good measure–I trimmed out all the edges with some chocolate brown ribbon with pink top-stitching! You cannot necessarily “see” all the edge detailing, but, you get a sense of it–and it’s a gREAt detail!
This is Aleigha and Rachels’ new little vanity! And chair! I just have to coordinate the mirror I had previously done for them! But I love it–and hope they will too!
The boys’ desk ~ now the girls’ vanity!
I’m m sharing the girls’ new vanity with these fabulous linky parties!
