A Little Love Can Go A Long Way

I acquired this when my next door neighbors moved out.
Pretty, eh? Yikes!

My neighbors 14 year old daughter used it as a dart board.
But I saw some potential in this little mistreated gem. She just needed some love.

I gave her a good sanding down.

Used some...rather, a LOT of wood filler.

Primed her.

Painted her with the colors Bon Voyage and Ionic Sky. And wah lah!

A new mini craft station for my kiddos.

It is so nice to have a place to stash the coloring books, crayons, etc. and they can access it when they want instead of begging me to get it out for them.
