i haven’t done a you-made-it-so in a while, but i had to share this email and desk/chair makeover from my friend tara…
I painted an old desk yesterday that has been begging for some love (it was my brother’s school desk when we were kids- some furniture never leaves). Jackson asked me why I was using sandpaper to take off some of the white paint I had just used. I told her I was distressing it. I said it was a thing people do to furniture to make it look old, and that I was following the steps from YouTube. “Weird, huh?” I said, and she said, “Mama, are you trying to make the furniture look like you feel?” Ha!
tara, i already mentioned this to you, but i love how you used the pillow case as a cover for the chair. and i’ve repainted furniture much like that desk there. i know just how much work that is. satisfying project though, huh? looks fab!
you can read (as tara calls it) her pillows’ birth story here.
and you can read a blog post tara recently wrote about tables and all the creative things that happen around them. i think many of you might relate… here.
