Before and After Dresser


BEFORE
{Sorry for the lame pics...}
I REALLY did not like this dresser and was actually about to throw it out.
I didn't even think D.I. would accept it...

UNTIL...
My Hubby got his hands on it...
I wanted more height to it so he built a box to put on top of it and then added a wooden embellishment to make it more {FANCY}. He even PAINTED it for me {and he really hates to paint-he must REALLY love me. ;) We didn't know what type of finish this dresser had on it so he used a oil-based primer which I LOOOOVE because it requires no sanding and you can use ANY top coat with it. I think it may be my new favorite thing...

I added some lovely little knobs {the knob on the door is actually shaped like a victorian rose)from my FAV store, Hobby Lobby and viola!

It went so lovely in my Baby Ali's Nursery.

The other weekend, Jacob's sister came to visit. Let me tell you a little about this lady...

She was such a {TROOPER} when she caught the flu from us... We are SOOOO Sorry, Court!



She makes my kids {GIGGLE}She brought this little {CUPCAKE} with her

She holds thier {HANDS}

She has the {Hottest} brother ever!


She is {Nae-Nae} to this little thing.



And the mommy to this {PERFECT} little thing. ;)

We had a litte bit of this... ;) {It was pretty funny}
A {LOT} of this...
And this...And some of this... {Uncle Jay feeding her apples}.

We loved to use Uncle Jay as a {JUNGLE GYM}. ;)

We had one of {THESE}.

{Court is gonna be so mad at me. She absolutely dispises snotty noses and I practically had to hold her down in order for her to let me take this picture. ;) }
Ali {along with the rest of us} were really sad to see them go...
*Thank you so much Courtney for always taking the time and opportunity to visit your family. We love you so much!

My Sissy came to Play!!

I had the most wonderful couple days with my sissy, Heather who came all the way from Virginia. We had a blast giggling, stuffing our faces with naughty snacks, making beautiful gumpaste roses, doing a photo shoot with her oober-cute baby, swapping recipies, eating more naughty snacks and more. Love you sister!







They totally look real, huh?!
