Dining Room Reveal

Well, it's time.

It's taken me about two months to finish this redo. It's cost me less than $200 to redo about 4 rooms in my house, this one room cost me about $125 or so, including the paint and supplies.

Where to begin?? Ok...before...


After!


A closer look at the table...

Became this, after some spray paint and stenciling...




This ugly Craigslist find...



Became this!!



The top of the table is stained. We had planned to do the same with the dresser, until we started realizing that while the dresser is wood, the top green layer was actually veneer. So I ended up painting it with a 98 cent tube of acrylic paint and some polyuerithane. It worked really well!


This window...

These curtains..


Were replaced with these...


Not burlap, but still similar and just as cheap.

And I finally found a place for my beautiful wreath made of coffee filters...








I am just so happy with it. I could have just bought new furniture (well, I couldn't have, really.) But I wouldn't have been as proud of it. The dining table has character and a history. I am so proud of how that dresser turned out. I put blood and sweat into my new room and I couldn't be happier!

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

Dancing With Dad

I have been working on a project these last couple of weeks for my previous company. Yesterday, I was working on my computer and heard roaring laughter coming from Avery's room. I walk in and found Jason and Avery dancing and singing away. 




 By sheer coincidence, this popped up on my Timehop today. Avery was only 1 in this picture.

Boy, are these kiddos lucky to have such a great dad! It makes me heart melt.
