> Tres Chere: Aydan Pie

Aydan Pie

Who is sweet as pie? Why of course our sweet little cousin Aydan Pie! For a little girl this sweet we created a desk fit for a princess. How could we resist? We revamped an old Vintage school desk for less than $20.00.

We purchased a Vintage School Desk for $10.00 from the Thrift Store.

It was spray painted "Watermelon" by Krylon.

Once the spray paint dried, the top of the desk was primed and then painted a light Blue/Grey with our secret "Faux" Chalk paint. If you missed the post "Psst..We Have A Secret" that explains our "Faux" Chalk paint click HERE.

For the ruffled skirt we repurposed three Vintage Scarves and three shirts. The scarves were purchased form the Thrift Store for 50 cents each and the shirts were found in our closet. We couldn't remember the last time they were worn if any so no love lost there. :-)

The scarves and shirts were cut into strips. We cut scalloped edges along the scarf fabric to give it a more ruffled look. Once our strips were cut we hot glued the fabric in layers around the desk.


For the Pennant Banner, an old cardboard T-Shirt box was used. We cut out three triangles. We sprayed fabric adhesive on the cardboard and placed fabric over each triangle. The excess fabric was cut off and a strip of coordinating fabric was added to the top of each pennant. We repeated the same steps on the reverse side of the triangle. The triangles were then glued to a piece of ribbon and the letter "A" was added to the middle pennant with a black Sharpie. The pennants were hot glued to the back of the seat and bows were added to hide the ends of the ribbon. And that's it! Super Cute an Super Easy!




So sweet! Just like our Aydan Pie!

Super cute! I did a similar desk for my daughter, but I'm loving the watermelong spray paint on this desk! I recently discovered that watermelon color and just love the pretty pop of color it gives. Really works for this piece.
