Puppy Love!

Now that the weather is finally nice, our puppy Bailey can run around outside. I couldn't help myself, I needed to take a few pictures of her!

Came inside after playing and still happy!

Painting Fun - Yellow Armoire

As I posted earlier, I decided to spend the weekend painting our guest bedroom armoire. The weather was perfect this weekend for painting and Stuart was out golfing, so no better time then now!

I forgot how much work it was to paint, but am happy with the end result! Instead of sanding it first, I decided to prime it first. I used 3 coats of yellow Dutchboy paint from Walmart, and bought the knobs from Target. After I was done painting, I decided to sand the edges to rough it up a bit. Perfect! The entire project cost $15.

1 coat of primer and 1 coat yellow:

Pretty knobs from Target - you can find these on all my painted furniture in our home

I now want to buy 2 baskets for the bottom shelf - for extra storage and to hide those cords! I will be searching rummage sales for them!

Have a great week!

Weekend Project - Yellow Paint!

This weekend I will be tackling a project I have been dreaming of for awhile! If you know me, you know I love yellow. I am going to paint an armoire that is in our guest bedroom - yellow! I bought the armoire for $50 (originally from World Market) about 2 years ago. Here are my inspiration photos. Stuart thinks I am crazy to paint it, but I am soooo excited! I should have project done and posted by Monday! Have a great weekend!
