TWO craft posts in one week? You got it!
I'm bad about going into the thrift store/Goodwill with a list of things I already have a plan for... And coming out with things that
I have no plan for that will have a plan eventually :)
This little guy was one of them
Doesn't he just looked so sad and helpless! It looks like he might have been a Precious Moments table at a time long, long ago. But everyone deserves a second chance, right? So I snatched him up and bought him at Goodwill for $2.99 and brought him home to start his restoration right away! (that was the plan, I've actually had this table since November and just now got around to fixin' him up, sorry lil' guy!)
After the first coats of paint, still looking pretty rough. Oh and of course we primed it first. HOW could I almost forget that... My son actually spilled the whole can of primer on our kitchen floor. Thank goodness for mineral spirits! We just used plain ole' acrylic paints from Apple Barrel seen in the picture.
Behold, Jack's bath toys. Foam letters and numbers included *happy dance*
FYI, they make awesome stamps! And acrylic paints wash out with soap & water so no harm done, they can go back to your child's bathtub after use.
This picture is a little blurry but you can see the start of my stamping (using the same colors I used for the legs). By the end, there were some letters/numbers missing because I think our bathtub ate some of them, but oh well.
And here's the little guy all finished, sealed with some polycrylic, and looking much happier in his new home!
Sorry the picture quality is so bad! But you can see in the second picture, Jack is enjoying his new munchkin table!
Now just have to find some munchkin chairs to go with it! Ikea? I think so :)
