Weekend Wrap Up

We got rain! Saturday, Sunday, and today!

This weekend was a mix of good and bad. Friday night we took the kids to their grandparent’s house and had a night to ourselves. We were invited to a small get together celebrating the promotion of one of my husband’s co-workers. Then Saturday we spent the day with my parents. We went to lunch and to the Daytona Flea Market.

My parents – my dad is still a kid if you can’t tell!


As you all know – I finished up my dresser…


I also worked on Pirate Party stuff for Mason’s birthday.




I told you there was good and bad. The bad is that my husband woke up on Sunday with a rash and fever. He went to the doctor this morning and they put him on antibiotics. He has been sleeping the past two days. Poor guy… I’m making him some Chicken Noodle Soup to help him feel better!

What did you do this weekend?

Dresser Makeover Debut

Last week I shared my newest Goodwill makeover contestant who was in desperate need of a facelift and a new coat of polish. Did I mention a broken drawer? You can find all of the dresser's BEFORE pictures HERE.
What was once before a cream colored dresser with gold trim is now a lovey shade of pale green. I would share the paint color with you, but I mixed it from some paints I had in the garage. It still needs drawer pulls, but I haven’t found any that I like yet (or at least not in my price range!) I have only spent $10 on this dresser so far, so I don’t want to drop $70 just on hardware!


Now I’m off to scrub the paint from my hands and arms!

Current Goodwill Project

A few weeks ago I went into Goodwill on the search for brass candlesticks. You can see what I made with those HERE.

I also passed a dresser which was calling my name. It was marked at $7.99 with a broken drawer. I knew my handyman, AKA my dad, could fix the drawer without a problem.

Here is the picture of it right before I loaded it into my truck..


Then some more photos when I got it home…

The drawers need some serious TLC and most of them are missing their hardware.

The dresser itself is in need of sticker removal (someone put stickers all over the top of the dresser), and a good sanding and coat of paint.

Once I get the dresser finished I will be done with the living room redo! I think I am going to keep it a cream color to contrast against our green walls. This dresser is going to go right under our television which I finally had mounted on the wall.

I would like to have the dresser finished by Mason’s birthday party (two weeks!), but it has been SO hot I have been avoiding it!
