Here is what I have been doing though... just small little things.
Hobby Lobby was once again my very best friend when I found these knobs for half off, making them $2.50 each. The closet door had one wooden knob before, so anything would have been an improvement, but I love the vintage look they add to some rather boring doors.
I also finished off this mirror with some of my left-over paint from Caromal Colours. The mirror was a dark stained frame, and I decided to once more go light and bright!
You can see that I used the paint to do more of a textured finish. (I simply smooshed and bounced my brush instead of stroking.) I used some of the tea stained glaze that I purchased from them as well, wiped it off with a damp rag and let it dry. Of course I finished with a light sanding. Easy peasy.
Remember this list that I posted when I revealed my baby room wall?
5. Paint crib
6. Paint small hutch
7. Make new crib bedding
8. Add a few pillows to the full size bed
11. Make a mobile
You may notice there are a few more items "struck" off the list (as well as one added). Take a closer look and you'll see that Paint dresser to go in closet is "stricken" (is that a word?) off the list!!
I also got to mark through Organize closet much to my delight! (More on this task in a later post.)
Last, but not least... Many of you read my baby bedding rant here and I got lots of suggestions and ideas. (thank you by the way!)
A dear friend of mine sent me a link that was pure gold!
I fell in love with the tattered charm of this baby bedding. I didn't fall in love with the price though, so I will be trying to make it myself in a few weeks
If you hear wailing and screaming, then you know that I've started and it's going just.as.I.planned.... I don't like sewing.
Oh, if you want to see where this amazing bedding came from and some more of their stuff, then click here.
Time marches on and I am determined to finish this up before I hit the 7 month mark. That gives me almost exactly one month.... Yow!
Yup, that's the real deal.
