If you missed this furniture save ,catch up HERE



For everyone else :



I finally delivered This gem to the proud mommy-to-be and she absolutely loved it, as I knew she would.


Our hubs’ moved it into the baby nursery and we even got to help put her crib together!


Before leaving she approached me with the opportunity to paint another piece of furniture for her .



Isn’t it great?! I jumped at the chance to give this one a make-over.


She sent me home with the idea of a matching(with THIS color) piece to the changing table….





Call me crazy, I just don’t like matchy matchy. It makes me gag. I am a 100% believer of ‘coordinating’ rather than ‘matching’


My idea just wasn’t what the “client” wanted.


……what to do what to do…


I called her up with a positive coaxing voice and begged pitched my idea.


She said[quote],” AHH! It sounds GREAT!please please do that! ”




I laterally hung up the phone, sanded, preped , gathered supplies, and started painting. Finishing withing 2 hours, including drying time.


Want to see?? Here it is!!!



Well? What do you think?


We’ve had multiple conversations expressing the hatred for an all pink girls room .  Don’t get us wrong, We LOVE pink. I suppose it’s back to that whole “matchy matchy” thing. Plus, It’s sooo….expected.


We love the unexpected.



I just love the modern , simple, and calming feel this piece will bring to her nursery and I think it coordinates just perfect with the previous piece I painted for her.



I was even able to reuse the hardware. With a little sanding they look good as new ! All the paint used, I already had on hand. FREE is the best price for me!






Fyi- The hubs is (finally) over the stomach bug only to wake up last night to realize my Brenbear had a fever.


Three down….one to go (me)


I hope you enjoyed this reveal . I’m off to take care of my baby!


Have a great weekend!!
