Dresser re-do

Hey Everyone!!! Just wanted to share the dresser that I just finished....I love how it turned out! I was originally gonna paint it white with the stained ebony top but at the last minute decided to go with a creamy light blue green insead...I adore it! I hope I can sell it to someone that will love it as much as I do!

I did it again and didn't take a before picture....this dresser was THRASHED...I mean scratched...dented...chewed on...you name it! It was scored free off of craigslist and when I got it home I realized that one of the handles was missing...so I grabbed a couple of knobs from my stash and spray painted all of the hardwear a glossy black. For some reason the blueish color is coming up more white in pics....oh well you get the idea! Hope you all like it!
Oh...and on a personal note...I have 50 followers!!! That means that there are 50 people out there that actually have interest in my ramblings! Wow...I feel very honored! I want to thank you all for reading my blog...it gives me the encouragement to keep up the DIY projects. You all rock!

Friday garage sale recap

Yes that's right ladies! I had a garage sale today with a few friends...it went SO well. The only advertising that we did for this sale, besides a shout out on facebook, was to put a VERY specific craigslist ad about it. In the ad I made sure to list our big ticket "draw people in" items...such as designer clothes or purses, tools, kids play center things, etc. A lot of people are scanning craigslist looking for that stuff so they might come to your sale if you list it. I also made sure to list some prices with the time and the address of course. Well when I showed up to my friend's house that was having the sale there was a line of cars waiting for us to open. I know that's probably pretty typical of hard core garage salers but I was pretty excited! (not too excited though when they started rummaging on the tables AS we were carrying them out of the garage...how annoying!) We were open from 8am-4pm and we all made a killing. Too bad all but about 25.00 of my money went to my friend who was selling A TON of designer jeans...two of which fit me like a glove so I purchased them with some of my garage sale money...and my other friend who was selling ALL her boys baby/toddler clothes so I went crazy and bought ALL of Liam's jeans, pants, sweats, sweatshirts, shirts, shoes, etc that he'll need for probably the next 9 months or longer!! She was selling majorly awesome name brand boys clothes for DIRT CHEAP! I couldn't pass it up. And as we were packing up the sale, because there was some stuff that neither of my friends wanted to take home (housewares, picture frames, decorations, clothes, lamps, etc.) they just gave me A TON of stuff for free. So to recap...got rid of a TON of stuff...made practically no money in the end...walked away with GREAT stuff that my family really needed (well except the designer jeans...those I just wanted BAD)...All in all I'd say a successful sale! 
Oh and most of those decorations that I got for free I'm planning on spray painting and doing fun things with...I'll be posting a follow up post when I finally get around to it! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!!
