So I forgot to take a picture of the BEFORE so the picture above will have to do...but I think it will at least give you an idea of what my night stand looked like before.  The problem with this bedroom set is, it is a vanier.  So I really had to make sure it was primed right!  But IT WORKED!!  and here is the finished night stand.

Closing day!

We closed today....hooray. However we do not get to move in until Saturday....and it cannot come soon enough! But I have a crush on Miss Mustardseed.....have you ever looked at her blog.....WOW.....there are no other words. She is amazing, she has created me a new addiction of refinishing furniture. I am doing my bedroom to come tomorrow. If you have ever wanted to refinish anything check out her tutorials, this one is what I did to my bedroom set.

My First FINDS!!

We survived!  The Estate Sale wasn't what it was made out to be...but none the less..I got a white teapot and a vase to hold my dish soap!  I call that a success!  We (me, my 2 1/2 year old, and my 2 month old) all made it out the door and to the Estate Sale by 9 am...and I EVEN MADE MY BED!!  When you start a day like that you feel invincible!

Paint Color

I have been STRESSING about paint for a long I want a dark color for lots of contrast, do I want a light color, all the same color, all different colors...the list goes on!  But I think I have found my answer!  I am so amazed at peoples ability to decorate!  I LOVE this house @ for the love of a house.  AMAZING!  I love the paint color as well, everything just seems to flow!  So my problem is solved!

We close in one week!!!  I am so excited to move in and begin making this house our home!  I am going to my first Estate Sale in the morning...A new adventure for me, I will have my 2 little girls, so WISH ME LUCK!!

Our soon to be home!!

Hooray our soon to be house!!  I just fell in love with this house when we walked through it.  Even though everything is not my style.  I LOVE THE FLOOR PLAN and more importantly, as I found out, THE LOCATION.  This house seems to have space everywhere were I wanted it.  It has a Large Kitchen, Family Room, and Dining room.  It has a large master with 2 other bedrooms upstairs so I can keep the little ones close to me.    

I loved this house because I knew I could make it a home for our family and it seemed to have just enough work to be done to make a crafter like me so excited to dig in and make it just what I want!

I have created this blog as a journal of our house.  I love to see before and afters and sometimes it seems after you have worked so hard for so long you forget where you started!  Also you out there reading this...I am not a designer by any means I really just fly by the seat of my pants and try things out until I find what I love.  I would love to hear any feed back or ideas from anyone that would love to share...the more input and ideas the better something always seems to turn out.

And so the journey begins where to start....paint, lighting, molding, landscaping...ahhhh so much to do...and so so anxious to start!!!
