The peek

So I'm in the process of turning my baby's room into a big girl's room.  Our little friend from the post below is the first addition into the space.  While I can't reveal the entire room just yet, here is the new and improved Craig's List splurge.  We lost the skirt (and the swivel) and added a tapered leg with a dark lacquered finish; the semi-attached/semi-tufted back cushion became a clean tight back; and we outlined the frame of the chair with a contrast welt and oversized nailheads.  All in, I am still under $1000.  While recycled furniture isn't necessarily always cheaper than new, it sure does feel good to repurpose something if you can...

Thanks, Olger!
