Yesterday was my Babys 2nd birthday!

We had a little party, with our family and friends, and it was great! an evening pool party...What a great way to beat the heat, here in sunny California!

Sweet Pink Dresser Makeover

Whisper Sweet Nothings about this Dresser Makeover
*psst It'll make sense in a second*

I spotted this dresser a while back in my mother-in-laws room...She said if I could replace it...I can have it...let me tell you, I was on the move trying to find a good replacement for her...

Speaking of my mother-in-law...she has been super awesome...and so super supportive and along with being that she has also become my very first investor...yep. A few weekends ago, she suprized me, and handed me $100 and told me to go buy a paint srayer...I was sop excited I was literally jumping up and down...yay! Lets hope my sale goes well, because the first $100 I make goes straight to her :) If your reading along...Thanks Pam! I really appreciate all the support you have given me during this whole journey...oh and I'll have your bench done soon *pinky-swear*

Anywho back to the makeover...I found one, best part (for free)...yep So we got to trading! I have been debating lately on what color to paint her...And decided on a color by Behr called "Sweet Nothings" eh get it :) lol


But before she got a couple coats of primer...she was an oh so pretty shade of cherry (not pretty)
And now...
Cauuute! Huh....this would be so perfect in a nursery, little girls room...ooooh or a guest room...with soft textures, and pretty floral sheets...Ok ...I'm done dreaming of a sure feminine space...Won't ever happen here :) I'm so out numbered :) lol

This might just be my last project I post before my sale...Wish me luck all, and big giant thanks to everyone who has thrown out a couple prayers, and kinds word for me! (means alot)...and I will be back soon, I've got alot of last minute details to throw together!
