One of my daughters is a little bossy assertive. She is the youngest and yet she kind of rules our house. We are her loyal subjects and she is the Queen.
When I found this cute chair at a thrift store, I told her it was just her size. I knew I could do something cute with it.
She was in love and told me she wanted it to be pink (of course). I didn't think about that--I wasn't thinking pink. But, like many other things I do for her, I just did it. All it took was a little wood filler for the holes, primer, and 2 coats of spray paint.
Then, a little idea occurred to me. I decided to add a few vinyl words of my own. And, really, what does she care? She can't read yet.
BAHAHAHAHA! I got the laugh on this one--who's Queen now?
I am quite sure my laughing won't last long, but it was a quick and easy redo!
The moral of this story is probably something along the lines of
"Easy come, easy go."
But, this also serves as a great reminder: Bringing new life to old stuff doesn't have to be difficult or complicated or involve a huge time commitment.
Sometimes, it just takes a small effort to make a change that is just right!
