Last week's project..

When Jordan turned 2, we started looking for a mattress set so we could switch her out of her crib. We cannot afford to go to a store and buy a full bedroom set for her room (we don't even have one in our room!) so I figured mattresses were a good start. I found a headboard online that I love, and Jon is going to make it for me. I never took down her changing table--she is long past being changed on the table, but I still use the drawer and baskets for her socks, bloomers, swimsuits, and PJs.
A couple weeks ago I answered an ad in the paper for a dresser. I drove out to Gurley to look at it, and instantly loved it. It was only $25 for the dresser!!! I knew I was going to re-finish it in a white, but I bought it immediately!
Projects around my house tend to be put off...sometimes for months and months. I was determined that this would not be the same. In fact, I bought it on the 20th, and I am very proud to say that with Jon and I working on it alternately, it's done today on the 30th! I can't wait to put it up in J's room and break the changing table down! I think it will look so pretty!
The paint and knobs cost about $40. I say $65 for a solid wood dresser is a good deal! I distressed it a little on the edges, and I am SO pleased with how it came out!

Yeah Stacy!!!! I'm so proud of you!!!! It's beautiful! It's something that she can use for a long time, and even take with her when she leaves home if she wants.

Love it, Stacy. You are so talented! I just read Jon's blog and am so excited for you. Just think, soon you will be able to sleep ALL NIGHT!! I have always thought about the fact that it says a lot about you as a mother to sacrifice your sleep to be able to stay home with your precious babies during the day! I am so happy for you! Let's have a girl's night out to celebrate!

I'm impressed! :)I am in need of TWO dressers. Both the girls dressers died in our last move and I am about to need them again when we move into our house. I better start looking in the paper!
