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.

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 set...pictures 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.

I think one of the best parts of blogging is finding everyone ideas and bringing them together. My hardest thing with our new house is deciding what style I want? There is so much out there to choose from. I thought I would start looking and updating as I find things, to help keep them organized.
I just LOVE THIS SAYING...I think it needs to be in my house. Saw it over at Forever Cottage.
I found this awesome blog Funky Junk Sisters...I LOVE this idea!!!
My daughters room in our old house were these colors...
I LOVE this idea from My Sweet Savannah!

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!!!
