I'm starting a new series because I thought it was a great way to actually keep me on task for all those little things I put off for.EVER! I'll be alternating between Cheap & Cheerful, which will feature inexpensive transformations and Lickety Split which will feature projects that take 2 hours or less to complete.
This chair was one I picked up last year at a thrift store for $5. It was purchased for my daughter's room. Brown is not the most desired colour of a 10-year-old girl so a little paint was in order.
Here's a peek at the not-so-cute original state of the chair.
This project could easily have cost me more than $5 if I didn't have a closet full of leftover paint. I mixed up a couple of old favourites and came up with this beauty.
Speaking of new blog series, pop over to see my guest post at A Crafty Bee. Beatrice has started a new and very exciting series called "How Do You Do It". She will be featuring moms and bloggers and finding out their secret to keeping it all together. Is that possible? You'll have to stop by and find out.
