Sometimes finding stuff at the thrift store is like a furniture famine. Everyone is afraid that they won’t find something good, so when they spot it, they snap it up so quickly. That’s what I did with this kid’s chair. I was walking down the aisle and nearly the same time that someone else stopped in front of this chair, I said, “Wow, this is so cute! And it’s only $5.00!”
Some woman was like “OMG, yeah!” as if she were about to buy it if I didn’t.
Of course I snapped it up so quickly and placed it in my cart! Total score!!
What I Needed for This Kid’s Desk
- Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan
This is my favorite brand of paint, hands down. The color is Aubusson Blue. Isn’t it gorgeous? I used Pure White on the trim.
Seriously, I think you can add chalkboard paint to anything and make it wonderful! It’s not too terribly expensive, either:
These are perfect for transforming a desk into a learning station for your toddlers. And there are so many endless possibilities for alphabet stickers, it might be hard to choose!
You can see him hard at work here….. LOL
I’d be smiling big, too, if I had had stuff THIS cool when I was a toddler!!!
And it wasn’t long before he was reeeeaaally feeling artistic!
The best thing is that the numbers and letters area is waxed, and I will go over that area with Mod Podge to help “set” the numbers and hopefully make them resistant to chalk and peeling.
So what do you think?! Have you ever seen little kid’s desks in this style ?
