Chest of Drawers

Sorry I've been MIA, again :) I've been doing a lot of this....




I actually read a real adult book!  I love love love to read, but now remember why I can't read for fun when I 'm in school.  I get so wrapped up I can't put the dang thing down!  Yesterday I was so engrossed in my book I didn't even realize Madison had taken off her diaper in the pool....and pooped in it.  Oops!  I just finished Emily Griffin's Heart of the Matter and now I'm on to one I stole from my Mom, Summer Rental by Mary Kay Andrews it's set in the Outer Banks of North Carolina {which is where I'm going SOON!} so far a great poolside read!  I'm going to need to stock up on some more books for the beach so leave me a comment with your suggestions, pretty please with sugar on top.


So remember my awesome find?




 Now it looks like this!






I'm sooooo freaking in love with this thing, I walk in my bedroom just so I can see it!  I used pure white with black glaze on the drawers and the grey is Schoolhouse Grey by Martha Stewart {I seem to really love her colors I always pick one of hers!}


The handles I sprayed with Metallic Silver and glazed those too so they would look aged.




Just one more of her beauty...


Not bad for 30 bucks!

Don't worry Miss Madison is around too...


Just the usual...wearing daddy's socks and using her baby potty.  She's in the repeat phase, you know where she repeats every word like 50 times.  Mama! Mama! all wet! all wet! Mama! Mama! all wet! all wet!  alllll day long :)

Happy Tuesday!

  1. Dang chick! Seriously, you are awesome when it comes to making over furniture. Might be a good side job for ya, I know I'd pay for something like that (if I wasn't able to do it myself, ya know)

  3. 1. I can't WAIT to read Summer Rental. I'm waiting on it to be available on PaperBackSwap. If you're looking for other good books - all of hers are good. Especially Fixer-Upper and Deep Dish.
    2. That chest looks awesome! I can never find half-way decent fixer-uppers. They're always entirely too 80's or completely falling apart. I love yours!

  7. Cameron is a big repeater too. She will keep saying things until we repeat them back to her. I guess it's a good way to correct her pronunciation/grammar?
