A Girlie makeover...

The other day I saw these chairs that I LOVED, I saw the potential, and I was so sad that there were only 2 left :(...I'm thinking they came in a full set and someone took the other 4 that were all in tact and left the 2 that were broken..for me!
This first one I made over for my 2 1/2 year old daughter. I let her pick a color at Wal-Mart and that's what we did. To no surprise, she picked PINK. We were excited!
The only problem I had with this one was that it had a hole in the middle of the seat..bummer...but I wasn't going to let that stop me! I am still trying to decide of a few remedies to fix it, but for now it works and she LOVES it!
I think I might re-do the seat in a canvas material and also glue some over the back where the weaved part is (not sure what it is called) then add a little ribbon or something to finish the edge off. Maybe add a stencil off some sort to the seat then too. I don't know yet. When it comes to me I will let you know.
Anyway here is the before and after!
I tried taking some tulle and making a flower bow over the hole, but the color of the tulle makes it look like toilet paper or something...obviously doesn't work. I'm thinking I am going to go get the canvas and try that method soon!

Here are some other projects that I have in the making!!! So excited!
This chair is almost finished! I have the cushions reupholstered already, just waiting on my hubby to start a fire in the fireplace out in our shop! I tried painting it already and it was too cold so the paint crackled..I was so ticked! LOL!
Hopefully it will be done tomorrow!

This cute dresser is going to go in my son's room...probably blue again because that's the color he picked. I am just waiting to find some knobs for it!

This is a matching vanity to the dresser, but I don't think my son really needs/wants a I am trying to find a place to put it. The mirror is missing right now, but I think it makes a neat kind of bench or something without the mirror!

This little lovely is going to go in our master bedroom..I think! It was an old record player that I got for a whopping $5! SA-WEET! I think it would make a pretty entertainment center!

Lastly I have this cute little vanity/desk. I'm thinking turquoise!
Of course!

Hopefully I can get all these finished sometime soon! I am so excited about doing them, just have to find the time!
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
