While visiting my family in Utah, about a week ago, my mom gave me a dresser that she was getting rid of.
If you notice, there are no handles on it. That is because I am lame & broke two of them moving it. Of course, I was planning on changing them anyway so, I wasn't too sad. I decided to use it in the little girls room to replace the desk that was between their beds. Mainly because the desk was a safety hazard as it tended to tip over whenever they opened more than one drawer at a time. But, they also needed more drawers for clothes. I've noticed as my little girls are getting bigger, so are their clothes. Genius, huh?
Ms. Sassypants really wanted to help so, I let her do some priming. She didn't do too badly, either. Might be nice to have a helping hand around.
Here's my hubby, making sure we're doing it right. And can you see Boo pointing out where we missed a spot? The spot was the whole inside. She didn't understand why we weren't painting that too. :)
And here's the after...
I'm really happy with it. I still need to do a bit of accessorizing. I'm trying to decide exactly what I want on top of it & hung above/around it.
What do you think of the lamp, by the way? It was mossy green & I painted it. I'm not sure if it's just a bit too bright. Tell me you think. Also, should I add something to the shade?
Funny story on the lamp. I got it from Target. It was the cheapest one I could find at $16. I got it home, plugged it in & for the life of me, couldn't figure how to turn it on. It didn't have a switch anywhere! Not at the top, not on the cord. I was baffled. I finally pulled the tag out of the trash & read that it was a touch light. By touching the base it turns on & off. Ha, ha! I'm such a nerd! My girls think it's "awesome"!
