i found her...

i decided to stop by an antique mall on my way home from the weekend celebrations. yes i took all 4 monkeys in with me and just as my nerves were about to be too much to handle with all the "please don't touch that!" "you are going to break something!" and "i swear if we weren't in public..." i turned the corner and "hallelujahs" started to go off as i saw her. she was kind of buried under some stuff but i wrestled her out , i went up to the front and paid for her, and went on my merry way happy as a clam.

she sits waiting in my living room while the little one sleeps...i can't wait to put her in her room. my search is finally over!

My grandma had 3 of those in her attic room, and we LOVED to play school when we were kids. I wonder what happened to those desks when she moved... she probably got rid of them. :( at least I snagged her braided rug before she sent it to DI!

Hey, so cute!! Did you just spray paint it?

Bonnie said...

Vanessa, you get more done than anyone I know. Amazing woman, you are! I have one of those desks in my warehouse. They look so cute painted! Kate is one lucky little girl!

Mel and Byde said...

How do you do it all :)

girlsmama said...

Wow! You already have it painted and ready to go. You never cease to amaze me! And the picture in the paper was great, it really captured the moment.

That is FANTASTIC! I love it, I so NEED to shop around thrift stores and antique stores.
I think the chair was an awesome find, looks good both ways too.

i paid more than i'm used to but because i've been looking for one just like this one FOREVER it seems it's was worth the $40 that i paid for her. gasp! i spent $40 but it will be loved for a looooong time. katie loves to sit in it and i love to look at it!

V & Co. said...

oh and yes i spray painted it...thought that would be a faster drying well just faster all around process.

Joy said...

What a sweet little chair, and I love the red! Your daughter should enjoy it for years.
Don't you just love the immediate gratification of spray paint!?!
