Friday Faves

So, I've obviously had quite the unannounced hiatus from this blog...

Update on the dresser/entertainment center: I was going to try to finish it before all of the Christmas festivities begin tonight, but it's just not going to happen. But I did get 2 or 3 coats of paint on it so far and it is looking much improved. I'll finally be getting my handles over the break, so shortly after the new year I intend to slap on one more coat of paint and some poly, screw in the knobs and handles and call it done! (P.S. a foam roller is my new best friend...made the painting five thousand times faster!)

The REAL reason for today's post (when I have so many other things I should be doing right now!) is that I found a GREAT blog this week and I wanted to share. When I say great I mean "so good that I just sat there reading and clicking 'older posts' until I had read the entire blog...which dates back to May of this year."

Lots of beautiful pictures and great tips. Have a great Christmas!


It's Primed!

>> Tuesday, December 15, 2009

On Saturday, September 19(ish), 2009, my husband and I bought an ugly dresser for $40. A couple of weeks later my sister came over with her heavy duty sanders and wood filler and helped me get it prepped for painting.

3 Months Later...

I finally primed it tonight!! Want to to know what motivated me all of a sudden? Caroline once again offered her services (and more importantly, moral support), and is coming over tomorrow to help me paint it!

Thank you, sweet sister of mine for helping me get off my bum and actually get something done. Seriously sister is Wonder Woman...she's raising 5 little ones and gets about 5 times as much stuff done as me and my 1 little monkey. Well, at least I have a good example, right? :)

Still working on getting the handles... but eventually this beast will come together (and hopefully not fall right back apart when we move next summer!)
