We're moving!

Due to some family complications, my husband and I are moving in with my father. This is good. :D This means I have a new house to work my love on! I'm so excited! I'm going to try to post more, but as you may have noticed, I'm not good at keeping up on my posting... Anyways, I just wanted to share the news!

Little things

I'm been absent again... But now I'm back. :D I have a big update next post but you'll have to settle for some little ones in this post. First, I installed a light. By myself. I was terrified but I didn't get electrocuted or anything but my arms did get sore from holding up the light for so long.

This was the before light. We had these all over the house. Blech. 

I picked up a Scrabble game at a thrift store the other day for .97 cents. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. 

Then I wanted some signs for our trash cans to distinguish them.

Aren't they so cute?

My Closet. Yes, the whole room.

This was our spare room. When just he lived here. I wish I could find a way to describe just how GROSS this house was when I moved in. But you'll just have to believe me. The nasty stained mattress? Yea.... we burned that.

You're probably having a heart attack right now but I promise, this room has a happy ending.
I plan to redo that oaky dresser. I just have to get around to it.

No I didn't take my laundry basket out before I took a picture. You gotta keep it real, right?

This side of my room looks cluttered but it's actually very organized. I promise. :D

Hubby's beat up Dresser

Welcome followers! Thank you for all the wonderful comments!

This dresser was awful... don't believe me? Look.....
Sorry for the crappy quality. I had to crop it out of another picture because I forgot to take a true before. :(

I loved the pulls but I didn't love the color. I tried Brasso for these handles but I just didn't like the color still. 

Some Updates and Our Guest Room

I've updated this  post with a before picture. And this post with an after.

This room used to be my Hubby's room when some of his friends lived with him. Then this happened:
Yup. The roof leaked and caused a piece of sheetrock to fall in. We moved him into another room and this room sat empty. Ish. We fixed the roof and this room became our storage room. Until I moved in. You see, I love stuff. When my husband married me, he also married all my stuff. I have an antique, full size bed frame and matching dresser that are an heirloom. They had to go somewhere. Why not here? Here's the before of the whole room.

Boring bachelor room. 
And after.

 Please ignore the everything stuffed under the bed. I've been doing purging I promise. I'll post a picture of how much I'm getting rid of.
 The T.V. is only in here because my nephew had to watch 'mobies' and the living room was being selfishly hoarded by my hubby.
This was actually the back of a chair but the rest of the chair was beyond repair. This was all I could save. I sprayed painted it teal even though my old camera makes it look blue, and I put a picture hanger on the back. Isn't it cute?
