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 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!
