An Ikea Hack with Besta Units Part Two

As our saga continues, the Boss, being happy with the job thus far, wanted to sit on the bench with no worries of diaper leaks, which could lead to blackmailing evidence in her teen years.
You don't know our family!
You can see part one HERE.

  This was a job for her Crony.  Being a master with a brush, she expertly applied her stain and sealer in one. 




After numerous coats, Crony was delighted with the results.
The last part of this project was to build a door for the center unit to hide the power bar from little fingers.  With a few scraps of wood and some leftover beadboard from my master bedroom makeover,  I was able to create this door!


Crony painted her new door white to match the rest of the bench.

Power bar tucks neatly inside and latch holds door closed. 
 Crony did an excellent job with the installation!




The boss was drinking her face off
at the Mommy Bar (not shown), demanding
a new table that she could dance on.
I wanted no part of this so I STOLE these next pictures, 
watermarked them and claimed them as my own.
Hopefully Crony doesn't shut this blog down.

I figured I would take my chances as I think
Crony has her hands full with her little 
MILK_O_HOLIC.


The Before Pics of her $20 table!


The During Pics





The All Done Pics!




The Boss fits for now, but Crony has decided to purchase some chairs for the 
little milk-o-holic as she won't be in her prison chair for too much longer.

But that will be for another day, another dealfind,
and another picture hijack from Feral Turtle!
I'm pretty sure I have another 17 1/4 years to 
find good pictures on Cronys camera as she will be quite occupied!


The Boss has been dancing non stop but I couldn't show you those
 pictures cuz, um, well she had a bit too much at the Mommy Bar,
 and forgot her nappy....No one wants to see that, 
but you will wanna see this!


Cheers.
Good Job LouLou Belle!!

  14. Apart from the adorable boss, my favourite part is the beadboard door you made! I want you to make the doors for my bookshelves in my living-room!

  15. Totally adorable, pink moccasins and all (don't let Mel see them, lol). Love the dark stain against the white paint on both pieces. Does that Cabot stain and sealer work well? I've tried other brands and always get a gummy mess. I would love to know. You three make a GREAT team, keep up the good work and remember to rest up in between projects at the mommy bar!!
