Metamorphosis Monday

My first garage sale of the year! Didn't find much but I found some neat stuff. I have been looking for a chair for Zak's desk and this was perfect. Needed some work but it was the right size (a tad smaller than a normal chair) and price ($3)!

The chair after.
A few coats of white paint, a little distressing and a new chair for the desk.

Side note....the dresser in the background is also a Metamorphosis Monday item but I can't find a before pic. It was my husband's childhood dresser. I spray painted the outside red and chalkboard paint on the drawer fronts. Added a few knobs and drawings and a fun place to store boring clothes. :-)

The chair turned out great, and I love the rooster and the little wheelbarrow! Great finds!
