Now I know my abc's


I had another vintage coffee table like this one and realized it was the perfect height to fit a small chair under and by turning it around it could actually be used as a toddlers little desk




and this was the little chair I had in mind


actually it's a pint sized rocker - isn't it adorable?

and here's the new " set " painted and listed for sell:




I can't tell you how many times I had to literally sing my abc's in my head to make sure I got this right




I can just picture a little girl pointing out her ABC's sitting at this desk -
And hopefully by the time she's my age she can remember them, lol


And on a random note - how's the weather been treating your hair????????????

I go to the hairdresser.  A lot.
I can't - I don't - I won't even attempt to do hair.
Somehow my hairdresser is able ( even though I have it blowdryed and straightened ) to make my hair
look like silk - this summer?
STEEL WOOL has mysteriously replaced what used to be on top of my head.
And that's my biggest complaint with the heat and humidity.

Paint used: ASCP Antoinette - and Pure White

  5. Came over from Nifty Thrifty. As a retired English teacher of 22 years, I still have to sing the ABC song to get them pesky letters straight when painting. I once painted ten small slates for a party and left out "U,V" - don't ask why!
    Any child will be happy working or crafting on this table!

  19. love children's tables! This is really cute. Thanks for joining to our party! I gave up on straight hair about 20 years ago. I decided to let the wild woman come out! Frizzy, fuzzy, and any other word you can think of to describe my hair is good. Beats freaking out because it's not perfect!

Can I beat these spammers at their own game? Probably not - but I'm going
