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.

You really impress me with your eye for a good project! I'm sure I'd just pass on it and then miss out.
