The Harp Chair


Hey, there! I'm so glad you stopped by today! Got a chair makeover that I am really excited to share with you!

If you follow me over on my Facebook page, you may have a seen a nice little harp-backed chair I picked up on one of my local Goodwill runs a few weeks ago. The chair was in nice condition and I just love the vintage harp on the back, but there is no one in my house doing the pink and white thing anymore:


I nabbed this beauty for $12! Structurally perfect, it was the ideal chair to match up with the DESK I refinished for my daughter earlier this year. Finally!

Well, it will be...once the pink and white is a thing of the past!

Desk Do-Over

As I've said in a previous post, my daughter has a tiny bedroom and a huge sense of style. She's in love with all things Steampunk right now. She had a small vanity I had refinished that (sort of) doubled as a desk, without having enough room for either job.


Now, if you know my daughter, her tastes are subject to change at any time. Right now, she loves her black furniture, but she likes the flat black, which doesn't always hold up to wear and tear. I'm hesitant to do heavy polyurethane finishes, because if she changes her mind, guess who's going to be doing the stripping - again? Yup - ME! 


Then I found this gem at one of my local Goodwill stores!
