Projects, projects, projects

I feel like lately Beck's nap times have consisted of Vampire Diaries and painting. I might have a slight addiction to both. Seriously, I'm on season 3 of Vampire Diaries and I didn't start it all that long ago. Sad. I just finished up 2 projects and started a third today. Im not completely done with any of them yet so I don't have any after pictures, but here's how they all started.

First was this desk. We got this guy on the side of the road for free! It's huge so hopefully it will fit through the doors. Keep your fingers crossed. You can't really tell how bad off it was from this picture, but trust me, it needed a little TLC.
We got this dresser from my parents, so it was also free. This is going to go in Beck's room. As you can see, it's quite old and was majorly faded. I finished painting it today and now I'm on the hunt for some knobs.

On a whim today I started painting my hall closet. I've been wanting to do this for a while, I just hadn't gotten around to it. I'm really excited for them to be finished, it will make a huge difference! Sorry for the awkward angled picture. It's a small hallway and the only way to get a good picture would be to stand in Beck's room. I was not about to go in there while he was sleeping just to get a good picture of ugly cabinets. So there you have it, stay tuned to see now they all turned out!


  1. I can’t believe you got that desk for free! It’s definitely got ‘good bones’! A touch of paint and some new drawer pulls will have it looking amazing in no time!

  2. I'm excited to see the "after" pics!! Yay for free too, that's always a huge bonus!

  3. I hope you have lots of success with your furniture projects!


  4. hi! I am so embarrassed to say that my husband and I have watched all 3 seasons in just a couple of months (or less). We just could not stop - so I totally understand! :)


You want to leave me a note? Thank you, I LOVE that!
