I was able to get the look I wanted for about $25.

Mod Podge and craft paper....
You can change the whole look. And make it to what ever you want. This are now home to tons of things to do with your kids on rainy days or in the summer when the kids need to have a little project.

Then I sanded it and did a little distressing and stained it with a mahogany Minwax Gel Stain.
I just love how it turned out!
Sometime when I start a little project it balloons it to a bigger project. I have a plan but I have to pick away at it because it takes time to find what I'm looking for at the price I'm willing to pay. So I got the chair done and I put it in the entry way. I played a little musical furniture to get the lookI was looking for.
Here is what my entry looked like before.
Now here is the after.
I haven't put the fabric on the chair yet I'm testing it out. I'm not sure if that is "the one."
I also got this mirror with all that cool stuff I got the other day.
I just put a brown glaze on it and hung it above the fireplace.
Painting the fireplace and changing the mantel is on my someday list.

Here is a dresser and a hutch peace that came in at a different time. They are going to going to go in the dinning room.
The chair I have already stated on. It's going in the entry way.

It is our basement bathroom, and laundry room for 6 people and my craft room. My crafts do spill out to the garage but that is another story.
When I designed the basement (When we were finishing it.) I knew I wanted a bigger laundry room then we had. Plus I multi task so much better when I'm right by all the stuff I'm trying to get done. So to me it only made sense to make a multipurpose laundry room and I'm in love with mine.

Next Saturday we'll work on the bead board back and the upper cubbies. Then out comes my black paint. I always have a gallon on hand.
For only a few hours of work it's "Not Too Shabby"
