Mike has had quite a bit of time on his hands the past week since we have been home from Utah. He still has his two jobs, but he only works them part time so every day he has a chunk of time that I am at work and he has nothing to do. And when he has nothing to do but he wants to get out of the house, he finds himself shopping, anywhere from Home Depot to Walmart to the Goodwill. And while at the Goodwill, he found us this little beauty:
I am so excited about it! I have been wanting to find a cheap dresser that has a lot of character and that is short and long that I can paint and he found one for us for $50! It is beautiful and is in great condition! So when it warms up, we are going to spray paint it green. Yep, green. The actual paint is called "Ivy Leaf". Then we will glaze it and it will be the new addition to our master bedroom. Now if it would just warm up to at least 50 degrees (which isn't asking too much considering the day that we brought this beauty home, it was 70 degrees outside), we could do it. I am so anxious to see the final product.


  1. oh I love it! I can't wait to see what you do with it and how it turns out! Happy Painting!

  2. Oh Abby you have to come see the headboard we just finished making. Hopefully we can hang it up today. It's been drying. It's antiqued, totally cute.... For the guest bedroom. Mike did a good job finding that dresser. It looks huge and has A LOT of character. I can't wait to hear your ideas for it!

  3. Jealous!!! I read enough blogs that tell me how to do this, but I can't get the guts to actually BUY something, you know?
    Go Mike!
