Here's a recent creation I made for a friend's baby shower. The nursery is a "Cat in the Hat" theme, so I painted a little chair to match. The directions are pretty straight forward -- find a little chair at a thrift or antique store, sand it (or do a happy dance that you scored a chair that someone else already sanded it!!), paint, mod podge desired image, finish with sealer.
My friend loved her little chair, and I had a great time making something for her and her little one to enjoy for years to come. I cherish the times when I am able to create something for someone I love.
