Desk for two - pic heavy

Postby beck » Fri Apr 13, 2012 7:14 am

I saw a picture of the perfect desk for the girls on fb so thought I'd give it a go myself

My $2.75 eBay bargain

I covered two of the chairs from boring brown to pink with ladybugs.

I saw this on a blog or something and thought it was a wonderful idea! well done you :widesmile: :love: :wine:

How did you attach the fabric? My chairs need covering and I'm not sure how. Did you spray the table or paint it?

I've picked up a few bargains recently mainly from the big rubbish days we had here recently :oops: we got a Retro 60s dining table (which I think when I get my gorgeous one from mum's will be good as a sewing table). Also 2 matching chairs which are quite a funky shape. Also a lovely little antique kitchen kind of chair in need of love and tlc. My plan is to get a few more and paint them all the same (am thinking the shabby French look) and cover/ make cushions to all match. the other biggy is a big low thing with 2 huge basket drawers. Again it needs a paint and I'd like to see if I can spray the baskets to dark colour and maybe line with a nice fabric.
