This week I found a few little treasures. I ventured out to the Goodwill in Fountain Hills, which is about a 20 minute drive for me. Although it was a small store, I was pleased with the purchases I made!
First is this adorable little doll cradle! How cute is that! I mean, how cute COULD it be?! It is solid wood and cost $7.00
I'm not really sure why I HAD to have it.....ya know......since I have 3 boys! Funny how I'm drawn to little girl things!
Here she is before I transformed her:
And here she is now: SO PRETTY!
I knew I wanted to paint her a pale pink (since I don't get to use pink too often)
But I just mixed some stuff up that I had to get this color.
I had some pale pink acrylic paint, so I just mixed some of my Polar White to it until it was as pale as I wanted it.
Then the usual Sand and Antique
Now I just have to figure out what to do with her! ha
I also found this antique chair. I remember my Grandparents having one just like it when I was young.
So I couldn't resist!
It was also $7.00!
The chair was pretty glossy, and I wanted some white to show through when distressed, so I decided to prime instead of using my chalk paint. I used Cover Stain so I didn't need to sand, then used this Spa Blue color I found at Hobby Lobby:
So here you can see the white underneath:
I am very happy with the color and the way it turned out!
It matches perfect in my family room!
