Old is new again

Well kind of...

This chair was mine as a child. It lived at my grandparents house and then when I had kids it moved to my parents house.

In recent years it was stuck outside in the weather so I thought I would attempt to breath some new life into it. 


The kids helped sand it back



And then I decided to spray paint it an off white. It isn't 'like new', but it no longer scratches you when you sit in it.


And well I quiet like it.


Do your kids have something that was yours as a child? Is it looking a little worse for wear?

  1. I like that it still looks weathered! I have my rocking horse from childhood - it's a cool modern Swedish piece and my mother is keeping it for me to use when I have bebes x
