Vintage Double School Desk

I got a text from a friend over the weekend to see if I could paint some furniture for her sister.  I said sure and asked what she had found.  She replied "a desk and two chairs".  I didn't think much of it at the time but was so excited to see that she delivered a vintage double school desk with two chairs!  It's adorable and is for my friend's two nieces.

Here is a before of one of the chairs.  I didn't get a before shot of the desk but it was adorned with the same acorn motif.

Here is the after - super fun huh?

Hi friends.  If you know me or have been following my blog for long, you know that I'm a Spring/Summer girl.  I enjoy winter just long enough to wear boots and sweaters...about 5 times.  I'm thrilled when the time changes in the Spring (March 10th this year), Easter is my favorite holiday, I love to plant flowers, I'm giddy over putting my spring wreath on the front door and let's not forget that it's the start of baseball season - very important in my household!

So, I tend to rush into Spring every year.  I'm annoyed when Hobby Lobby has Christmas stuff out in July and even more annoyed that their "garden collection" is not fully stocked by February.  And honestly, I feel like throwing a party when the groundhog doesn't see his shadow - which he didn't this year - woohoo!

All of this leads me to share my first Easter craft with you. 

I bought these two baskets on the 127 Sale last August.  I didn't notice that they looked like Easter eggs until about 2 weeks ago.  They are pretty large - 24" and 25" tall.  I had fun decorating these and I kind of hope that someone buys them both to use together.

Have you been eager to start Easter crafts?
