Here is the before: two bookcases painted yellow
and after: three bookcases, books, green paint, and other odds and ends. are bookcases aren't quite full yet but that means room to buy new books right? My dad did such a great job on our bookcases and we love them!
My awesome mom has also been helping me get things done she made me cute vinyl sayings to go on my wall (she is also wanting to start up a business making vinyl sayings so if anyone is interested you can just write on my wall and i can get the information to her) and made these cute pillows for my couch :)
i have also been decorating our bedroom, we got these night stands from brady's parents. we painted, and stressed them to make them match our bed.
We also traded some dressers with Jolene, since the drawers were painted and i wanted the wood to show i had to strip the paint on them, this dresser had been painted five times before so it took a lot more work than i anticipated but i think the outcome turned really well..
Before:Red dresser with cream drawers and silver handles
After: black dresser with wooden drawers and gold handlesi got a bunch of frames for real cheap at the DI and painted them different colors, and with some, i put fabric in them and hung it on the wall. i had the t.v. stand that my dad made for my room at home, we just painted it black and my mom helped make these curtains for the window.
We were able to buy us this awesome bed with the money we got from our wedding(whiched worked out perfect because we had no idea what we were going to sleep on!) and my mom made us this beautiful quilt for our wedding present! we were able to do our own quilting for this quilt and it was so much fun! i would reccomend it to anyone who does quilting, the store we went to were so good to work with and it is WAY cheaper then having someone else do it.
