Little things...............

I have a large dresser being delivered tomorrow by a customer for a makeover - so didn't want to start any big projects - I've decided it's time to give this little beauty some TLC.....................

It's missing two of the rounded " caps " one of which is in the front and kind of obvious - I'm not
Kristi - ( FOR THE LOVE OF WOOD ) and have absolutely no woodworking skills - so thought
oh well - it's still an antique - and I do not charge antique prices - so someone will just have to buy
it as is - and turned it around to remove the seat and lo and behold!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TAPED TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What are the chances of that - I'd better buy a lottery ticket tomorrow, lol

I think this child's rocking chair is gorgeous and unique - I haven't seen one quite like it ( not right now I know - sort of looks like something out of " The Shining " ) now why would I go and say that???  I won't get Jack Nicholson's face out of my head now!

Better go paint it quickly so I can erase that thought completely!!!

It smells something terrible - needs a good cleaning - and of course I have to reupholster it - but still I'm loving it too much


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
