It was tucked away in my friends' son's closet. I knew exactly what I wanted to do to this cute little number as soon as I saw it.
It is SO fun to take an old, used, worn out piece of furniture and give it new life. I used my homemade chalkpaint recipe that I made out of some grey oops paint, leftover white oops paint, and Minwax wax. (I learned a new trick, mix a tiny bit of minwax stain into the natural colored minwax furntiture wax and suddenly you have a $10 verson of dark wax, instead of a $30 version from the 'other' compainies.)
I picked up those little birdie knobs at Hobby Lobby, going once on the way to Kindergarten drop off, and once on the way home so I could use the 40% off coupon each time, ha ha. The blue knobs actually were on the original piece, I never had to change them!!
