Buffet

Another trip to my favorite store, ReSell It!, turned up something I HAD to have, a buffet!  I just couldn't pass up her pretty scroll work :)  Apparently the before picture I had was on my Dell, before the toddler got  a hold of it.  It was your basic medium colored wood. Nothing special.

So, after a nice wash down with TSP and 2 coats of my favorite primer, Rustoleum {on a side note Home Depot dropped their prices on good ole Rusty, from 3.78 to 2.88!! I totally stocked up, my spray paint stash is out. of. control.} I used my paint sprayer {L.O.V.E} and gave her 2 coats of Humming Bird Blue, by good old Martha.

I wanted to try a new glaze, so I picked up some Valspars transcluent glaze.  Not really loving it so much.


It was REALLY watery and the color looked 'dirty' to me.  I think next time I will try the tintable glaze, I'm thinking the consistency is more like the Ralph Lauren I use. Sooooo I repainted over it and used the tried and true RL in black.


Much more my style.  The handles are Oil Rubbed Bronze, which is so dang pretty! I'm sure those of you who have followed me a while know I'm really obsessed with furniture and maybe you're wondering what the heck I put in this one, the round pink onemy foyer table, and my gorgeous hutch?
Toys.  Yes, this is where I store all the random toys and books she has laying around.  I even keep pull ups in one so I don't have to walk all the to her room after she uses the potty :) Lazy, I know.

We made it to the Dallas Arboretum this week, here's a cute pic for those of you who stalk my blog to see my cute kid.



I love putting a cute sun dress on her!

Happy Friday!
