Not so PERFECT Vintage Desk and Free Vanity Bench Makeover


Hitting REPLAY on an old post.
ENJOY!

Good Morning My Beauties! 
Last night I asked on FACEBOOK if you guys would like to see
NOT SO PERFECT posts.
You guys said yes...SO here is the first one.
Last night I explained that when I get super busy, I don't have time to 
set and photograph all the pieces.
Sometimes I have about 10 minutes before I have to bring some pieces in.
This set was one of them.

The desk started out like this.
Your typical wood and metal old school desk.




The bench started like this. 
My lovely sister gave it to me. 
Its an old vanity bench. it was in great condition but needed an update.
I grabbed some gold spray paint and started painting the legs.
I had no idea what I was going to do yet.
But once I started painting I got in the groove.
I painted the wood part of the base a nice mint green and then started
on the bench.
I painted the bench a cream color and found some cool coordinating 
fabric to pull it all together.
Now to the not so perfect addition. In my attempt to recover this bench
I learned how to do the special BACK covering. I thought it went pretty good but
the nail head trim went in a little crooked. 
But like I said this is a NOT so PERFECT post!


 Here it is. The finished set...
The not so perfect...
finished set.
I hope you enjoyed this post.
Thankfully someone else enjoyed this because it sold pretty quick
after I brought them into the booth.
Well that was the first of our 
NOT so PERFECT posts.
I hope you enjoyed.
Until next time.
Go make someones day Beautiful!
