An Ariel Theme Party For Our Little Princess!

Oh Wow, it has been way too long since I have blogged!  I am becoming a terrible slacker!  But the good news is I am now 37 weeks pregnant and hoping to meet this little man any day now! 

Today was my baby girls 3rd Birthday, my how they grow up too fast.  She has always been my little buddy and I just love spending time with her.  Her sweet little smile always melts my heart!

She wanted an Ariel themed birthday so of course I had to go a little over board and bake all the goodies I was craving!



First up are these mini cupcakes with just a hint of cream cheese frosting....mmmmmm



Then delicious chocolate cupcakes also with cream cheese frosting, my favorite!
I was super lucky to find these cupcake toppers at Dollar Tree!


And a delicious ice cream cake complete with Ariel and her crown!  


Some how I missed taking pictures of the cake pops which were also chocolate dipped in purple white chocolate frosting.  My mouth is watering all over again it was DELICIOUS!!!

I would say the party was a success.  I love having summer birthdays, it is always so fun to enjoy family and friends company over some good food.

Queen/Full Bed Nightstand and Pillows Up For Grabs!!


It has been awhile since I have painted such a fun retro piece!  

I debated and debated on how to paint this queen bed, and finally it spoke to me!  It wanted to match those fun pillows!  Great color choice wouldn't you say?  I love grays and yellows together and with a touch of cream it balances everything out!

 These pillows are made from Amy Butlers quilting fabric.  I love her designs!!

  The back large pillow is 18x18 the 2 middle pillows are 16x16 and the front mink pillow is 14x14.  



This 2 drawer night stand is the perfect addition to this fun bed, and I love the retro hardware to go with it!


Here is a little peak at what the bed looks like with out the pillows.


This bedroom set and pillow envelopes are for sale!  For more information please see my Furniture For Sale tab at the top of the page!

Old Chest, New Life!

This little chest had defiantly seen better day when I got her home.  Often times when I haul a piece home my husband will give me one of those...are you out of your mind looks...this piece was no exception.  She was legless and half covered in paint!  But, I am a sucker for old chests and I love the fun little details that were still intact!  

After I got this chest home....my assumptions were true, the remaining paint on this chest was LEAD BASED!!  EEEKKKK!!  Being that I am pregnant I didn't want to take the risk of removing the paint myself, so my amazing husband and assistant came to the rescue and removed the paint for me...with a chemical stripper of course!  Once this piece was lead free it was mine turn to fix her up and give her a new life!

And I couldn't be happier with how she cleaned up.......



I lined the drawers with old sheet music to add a fun flare to the chest.

Beautifully Refinished Purple Chest with Silver Backed Mirror


This chest has been used as my youngest daughters dresser for the last year, and we have loved having it.  The plan was to have 2 dressers in my daughters room since they are sharing now, unfortunately, the room isn't big enough and so I am so sad to say I have to part with this dresser.

The mirror is the original silver backed mirror and does have a little bit of streaking to it...as seen in the pictures.  But for an old silver backed mirror it is in awesome shape!

I have touched everything up so it is as good as new.  This dresser is painted with Annie Sloan's Chalk paint and then antiqued using her dark wax.  The entire piece is also sealed with her clear wax.


It has beautiful bowed front drawers and white vintage hardware to compliment the mirrors details.


The drawers have been covered with old music sheets as well.

Girls Room Makeover

WOW, I have been gone for way too long!!  I thought I better check in and give you an update.  

Prep for the baby has begun!  I am now 33 weeks along and ready to meet this little man.  

We are putting the girls in a bedroom together so I have been getting everything ready to move them in together.   Our rooms upstairs are not very large, to maximize space we decided to go with bunk beds.  Come to find out I am picky when it comes to bunk beds.  I couldn't find anything I loved in my budget, and so I decided to make them!
