This week we got our new piece of furniture moved into our kitchen, HORRAY! My mother and I worked on this piece together. She got it for free on the side of the road about a year ago. It's a huge piece that is nice and sturdy. It was originally an oak color. She then primed it white. Her and I painted it two coats with a teal paint. Then we sanded/distressed the crap out of this thing. Last we stained it with a dark dark dark wood stain. It turned out PERFECT! It only cost me a total of $23.00 for the paint and stain. AMAZING! This piece of furniture has lots of storage and will be used for baby items. Here she is, isn't she lovely?
While I was taking picture of this lovely piece I took some other pictures of our new carpet. Take a peek. I am in the process of redecorating so stay tuned for more updated pictures of the decor. The pictures really do not do the carpet justice. It's soooo shaggy and sooo cozy! But you will get the idea.
