Meet, I heart My Glue Gun, Week 9!!!

 Hi all you Type A readers!


I am SO excited to be over here at Type A today! Tammy has an awesome blog, and she's just as sweet as can be!



My name is Janet, and I'm the proprietor of I HEART My Glue Gun! I'm a mommy to four kids and I'm blessed to be able to stay at home with them! 


 I love crafting, home decor on a budget and being INSPIRED by other bloggers! Blogging is such a fantastic way to get the creative juices flowing-I love to take something I see and tweak it a bit, putting my own spin on it! 


 So today, I want to show you a chair that I picked up at a local thrift shop for $7.00




I was totally drawn in by the floral design on top....so pretty! But, the chair could use a makeover. So that's what it got!


 First things first-disassemble the chair.




Lookin' better already.


 Now it's got a fresh coat of Rustoleum's Heirloom White....stinkin' LOVE this color!




Then I applied some ralph lauren faux technique glaze (so glad I got this stuff before they discontinued it!) 




I got it into all the little crevices and let it sit for a minute before wiping it off with a wet rag.




I then used the burlap I bought at walmart for $1.68 to cover the seat. 




I stapled the flat sides first, and then gathered the corners by pinching them, then pressing them down and stapling.




And then the chair appears to be finished!




 Only, I feel like it's missing something! So after some thought, I came up with something-a monogram of our last name's letter. So I busted out my cricut (a.k.a. My PRECIOUS) and whipped up a "G" monogram.




I cut my "G" out on contact paper that I got at the $0.99 cents store, and stuck it to the chair seat.




 After dabbing with paint and letting it dry, I CAAARRREFULLLY pulled back the stencil and voila! A beautiful "G" monogram, which I think provided the PERFECT touch to my chair!






 So there you have it! From Shabby to Chic, and PERFECT for our bathroom vanity!


Thanks for having me Tammy, and I hope you guys will hop on over to my blog and check it out! 


 Happy Monday!



Janet, thanks so much for the awesome post!  You really ROCKED that chair!
