project 52 | week 29 | old

So what is old? Well, this desk. Which I bought at an antique store a couple months ago with the intention of putting it in C’s room. It had potential but it was only half painted and a blue color we didn’t love. After much prodding from the girls we decided to get busy with this project. I let them help paint it which resulted in quite the mess. We chose a cheery yellow color.

Now the desk has a place in C’s room and she loves it.

Also, Claudia is awesome.

    I love paint! I think half the stuff in my house is old furniture with a fresh coat of paint to make it new and fresh! Love that you let your girls help you. Much more meaningful I imagine! Great job!
