My friend and neighbor gave me this table and chair set on Saturday. Little did I know that fixing it up would require 2 trips to each Lowe's and Hobby Lobby, 6 cans of spray paint and a huge lesson in patience.
This is the original color that I painted them "raspberry", however since I failed to prime first the wood repelled the paint. grrrr....
When I went from primer and paint I found that they were out of "raspberry" and had to settle with watermelon, only to learn that for some reason it still wasn't gonna take the paint well.
So I have decided that I will not cause myself any more grief (or cans of spray paint) and just call it "rustic".
About 2 months ago a friend of ours gave us a big girl bed for Monkey. I wanted to make sure that she was good at sleeping in it before I took down the crib. I added her table and then the kitchen that she got for her birthday.
"Ahhh! My Room? Thanks Mommy!"
Ashley has informed me that this is the ultimate little girls room!
