Some new ideas for Christinas room...

I've decided that instead of going with the mirrored Hollywood Regency set from Pier One, I'd like to find a French Provicial dresser and refinish it. Upon my search, I cam across this baby.

Do you see how it doubles as a desk? I love it. I am going to check it out tomorrow and it just may come home with me. My question is, Do I leave it the Seaglass color-or do I do a distressed antique white to match her future bed, dresser and nightstand once I find them???

Spring is in the air!

It's so beautiful outside! I thought I'd share my garden with you. These pics are from last year, and since my yard is ever-evolving, I can't wait to see what this year looks like.

Master Bath: Step 1:COMPLETE

Im so glad that's finally accomplished!!! I finished staining my cabinets, which would have been a cinch had I not accidently used a Glossy Clear Coat instead of a Satin. therefore, I had to resand everything and redo the clear coat again, this time-in Satin. I definalty recommend this as a weekend project to revamp those blah or dated looking cabinets. Thsi quick fix cost me less than $50, and saved me hundreds on new cabinets. Here's the end result:

(This is similat to what they looked like before, minus those white knobs. Mine are Brushed Nickel)

After: I used a Bear stain right from my local Home Depot, after using an electric sander to take the original clear coat off. Super Easy!
