My latest project

A couple months ago I bought a dresser for $2 from a neighbors garage sale. Basically all it needed was a new track for one of the drawers and a new paint job. This week I finally got around to redoing it and I wanted to show it off. We have an open area off our kitchen that has become our play room. We know we have 3 kids and grandparents that love them a lot so inevitably that means a good amount of toys. As much as we organized the toys Brian and I still didn't like the look of all them sitting out. So the re-done dresser is now the new home of many of our toys. I forgot to take a picture of what the playroom looked like before. But just picture a bunch of toys neatly arranged in bins along the wall. Not that appealing, especially when that is the first thing you see when you walk in the front door. I'm much more happier now with how it looks and I got to do something fun for me!
