One finished project

I finally finished one of my projects for this weekend. I have been extremely busy painting and hot-glueing for the last 3 days. I took a few minutes to drop in and read posts this morning, but didn't stop long enough to post one of my own. Well, I have finally called it quits for now so here goes...

But first...one of our fellow bloggers had her baby Friday, the baby has heart and lung problems and needs your prayers. Please stop by Kelly at Kelly's Korner and let her know you are thinking about her and baby Harper.



This is my daughter's dresser. We painted it when I was pregnant with her. She will be ten in May. It definitely needed an update. If you didn't already know...her name is Crimson. She has decided on black, purple and lime green to redo her room. So, here goes...



This is the before shot of the drawer pulls. You can see the drawer pulls on the top of the dresser in the first picture. This is after the original paint was removed.



Paint them black...



Add some fuzzy purple trim...



Paint the dresser black and attach the drawer pulls. Much better for a ten year old!!! And now for the rest of the room...

We bought a bunch of wall hangings at Hobby Lobby this weekend. They were having a 50% off sale so we picked up quite a few. She still wanted her name in her room so we picked out the letters to decorate her wall. Those are painted black and waiting for me to finish them. I found a cute little lamp at a local antique store a couple weeks ago for $7.00. I think I already posted a pic of it, but if not it will be in a future post. All the shelves for her room have been painted black. I was going to post a pic of them, but realized I didn't take a pic once I gave them the last coat of paint. We have decided on a soft lime green to paint her walls, so all the black and purple decorations should look great. I still haven't found the perfect material to make her comforter, but I'm sure I'll eventually find it. We have been looking at zebra print, but found purple cheetah print that looked better. The zebra print will probably still find a home, though.

By the way, thank you to my followers and subscribers. I really enjoy blogging. It has inspired me to complete projects I have wanted to do for a while. My husband likes it too. I can usually complete a project if it is for someone else, but have a hard time completing it if it's for me. Now, I feel like there is someone else counting on me. Thanks again!!!
