Long story short (because I have some crazy “Craigslist stories” to go along with this) I , after losts and lots of searching, found a beautiful piece of furniture!
Now, keep in mind I was searching for a versitile piece that she can use for her baby (as a changing table) , toddler, maybe even in her room as a teenager. You’d be surprised how this color looks paired up with an assortment of different colors!
I also invisioned mom being able to use this piece in her home. I love how unconventional pieces of furniture look as media storage, Television stand, a staple in a mud room, or even as a buffet at a dinner party…
With so many uses I invision my friend to LOVE her gift.
I did, however, miss my deadline. Her baby shower was last saturday.
I didn’t show up empty handed. I went and bought some much needed essentials . She already knew what I had planned for her and she expects it to be great. So, it’s okay.
Well? Are you ready to see the before?
I think that’s the best part.
It was actually a great piece to begin with, great lines, details , and very solid.
The only downfall was a couple loose drawers, broken hardware, and a dated 70′s-ish yellow (that HAD to go!)
Here she is: the cause of my 4 day stiff neck , sore back and shoulders, and all around grief….
ahhh…my favorite thing : Before and After’s
