Man oh man, this craft room is sure coming along and I’m loving every bit of it! I am working on the furniture, piece by piece and it’s looking super cute!
Remember how I live with 3 boys? Well this is my girly space!
Naturally, I painted a hot pink accent wall (which will have to be painted back when we move because I’m a renter! But it adds a lot to the room while we’re here!) The color is called “Sexy Pink” hehehe! I was about to have a quart mixed up at wal-mart when I spotted the same color in the “Oops!” paint! Boo to the yah!
I found this desk for about $12 at a local thrift shop and it was just that yellowey fakey wood. Gag!
I spray painted it hot pink and added this vinyl decal that I made on my Silhouette. Silhouette owners, the shape is $.99 and its called “corner flourish” (corner_flourish_C20090727111527_19007) I’m sure I’ll use this shape on something else. I love the girly swirl!
I taped off the detail on the sides because I wanted them to stay pink!
Next, I painted the whole desk with some white paint I had on hand. (Behr-Swiss Coffee) I peeled the vinyl and the painter’s tape off of the sides before the paint dried so it didn’t peel up any of the pink.
The drawer pull was a shiny brass (ew!) so I sprayed it with some Oil rubbed bronze. I always have that on hand!
Then, I gave this girly a good coat of polycrylic (the spray can kind!) and voila!
The chair also came from a little thrift shop here in New York. It was between $5-8. Can’t remember exactly. I never pay more than about $10 for a chair. Ever. I loved the detailed back and the fact that I could upholster it in a cute print. The padded seat is mighty fine when I’m working on a crazy sewing project. Like my Anthro Quilt.
I’m really liking having my chalkboard too! It’s so nice to list off my “to do’s” on here. But really, there isn’t a chalkboard in the world big enough for that list.
not a great pic..
It’s so much more fun to be crafty in a bright fun room don’t ya think?
Stay tuned to see what else this room has going on!
Talk at ya later!
