Have a Seat!

I bought this lovely little mid-century telephone table off Craigslist about 3 years ago.  It sat like this in my dining room until recently.

The vinyl was ripped and the whole top was a bit rickety.  The boys love sitting sideways and using it for a desk.  It really is a cute piece, just in need of some love (of which I was intending to give it as soon as I purchased and well, you know how that goes).

I finally crossed that project of my to-do list a few weeks ago!  Yay!

Isn’t it so cheerful?!  Many thanks to my mom for her mad reupholstery skills.

And guess what????  The boys’ room is ALMOST done.  Remember when I was dreaming of redecorating it?  We have one more semi-big project to complete before I’m ready for the big reveal.  It makes me very happy.  I walk in and it’s just right-exactly how I pictured it.  And the boys love it too.  I figure this is the last time they’ll let mom decorate their room!
