Living Room Redo in Progress

I'm excited! I have 8 followers:)
My whole living room is still a whole lot of mess. It started with me wanting grey walls, then to adding crown molding, and so on. These are the before shots. Majority of all items are thrifted.

Adding crown molding was a great journey and still not completed. Our corners are difinetely not 90 degree angles. This is a quick sneak peek at what I'm currently working on, more details to come:) Stay tuned.

Thrift find

I am loving my latest thrift store find. I am using this as an accessories tray. Bought it for $5.99 at my local Savers.

Sharing is caring

I wanted to share with you the adorable cupcakes made by Patoa last week for Rose's 12th Birthday! Happy birthday Rose. Patoa's friend is opening up a bakery, this is definite inspiration for me to start baking again. Reminds me of the cake I baked for my niece and nephew's birthday. I love feeling inspired all over again.

Before and After Projects

Hello blog world, I am new here and I wanted to share some projects I have completed over the last few months. This is my first post, still lots of editing to do but just couldn't wait to get a post started:) Many of you have inspired me to blog and detail my own experiences refurbishing and decorating. More to come:) Love my first picture? My loving man, he has been a great support for all of my crazy ideas and hobbies. This is my favorite dresser, I'm completing it for my niece, Shylah's 2nd birthday. Still need to put a coat of poly... Auntie loves you:)

Please excuse my messy living room and broken lamp. I'm currently redoing the living room. I'm using this dresser as a side table for my extra dishes. I have a small galley kitchen and this sure helps a lot with space.

This is my first dresser that I refurbished. It was originally $29.99 and I got it for half off! :) The butterfly knobs I bought from my local Menards. I'm currently using it in my dressing room but am potentially going to let it go...
