Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come!

school desk and stool

 This cute little desk and stool sold very quickly at my first stall.

 This is what the desk looked like when it came home with me.
It was filthy!

 This worn stool had seen better days.

They turned into this very cool desk and stool.

 We cleaned the desk and gave it a good sanding,
The brown colour was not rust but rather the mission brown colour it was painted.
We painted it ironbark.
Then replaced the hinge and painted both sides of the lid with chalkboard paint.
She looks fabulous, now!

 The little stool had to have a new top, a simple piece of pine, stained and then I painted the ampersand on it with a freezer stencil and black spray paint, I distressed this a little before sealing it.
The rest was painted in the same ironbark and I put some new little black feet on the legs.

They certainly look lovely together and were fortunate enough to find a new home with the same owner.
