AbbySue's Make-up Table and Platform Bed

I had the long weeked to myself.  Hubby went to a lacrosse tourney and the weather was crappy, so Miss AbbySue and I decided to put "big girl" furniture in her room.  First, we sanded down and painted a beautiful old make-up table that we found on Kijiji for $20 (I am the queen of $20 bargains).  Then we added cute pink and white heart handles on it because she is so girly.  Here is the finished product (sorry, I didn't take any before shots):



The platform bed was a bit more difficult, but it is now a very tall bed that doesn't have space under it for her junk or the cat.  And when she comes and gets me in the night to sleep with her, I don't feel like I am laying on the ground.  Here is the before:



And here is the after.  She just loves it!!!





I also picked up a crappy wooden thing from Goodwill for $1.99 and spray painted it.  Now it is a bookcase at the end of her bed.  Here is the finished product:



Last, but not least, on this busy weekend, I bought her a plastic white desk from Kijiji for $10 and spray painted it a tie-dye purple.  It is perfect for colouring and art projects.  Here is the finished product. 








It has so much space and holds her multitude of crayons, markers, pencil crayons, pens and stamp kit.  Again, I got it for a bargain. Total cost - $10 for table and chair, $6.98 for spray paint.  And she loves it!!!

Ok, that is it for my summer projects.  Have already started on the cork board and mirror for this weekend.  Even have hubby helping cutting material.   Talk to you soon and I will have pictures!!!!
