Baby E's Room

I have for the most part finished Baby E's nursery.  I did just find a great little dresser I will refurbish and add... after he is born, but for now this should be it! 

Newish Cabinet

Two summers ago I bought a cabinet at a garage sale for $15.  I painted it black and it sat in my foyer for 2 years. 
Before the great "Spray Paint Ban of 11"  I had plans to paint it over spring break.  
However, I did sand it down to this: 
And then I enlisted the help of my dear friend Tammie to paint it while I watched from the side and added my moral support!  
(see this is NOT me painting... apparently my condition is soo sensitive for open air spray paint) 

Here is the finished product!  I am very happy with how it turned out!

What I did on Spring Break: Day 1

It's the first day of Spring Break and I was already planning so many projects.  I got started on a few today.  

My dining room chairs went from this: 

 To this

There will be more Dining Room updates throughout the week, so stay tuned. 
Then I decided to re-purpose the door handles to all 22 rooms in my house.  That gets expensive... unless you like spray paint.  And I do love spray paint.  
So I primed with this: 

And then painted 2 coats with this:  
(Side Note:  The sprayer on top is my NEW BEST FRIEND!

And my handles went from this:  

To this:  

I heart the change!!! 

Then I had a little extra time on my hands so I made this beautiful spring wreath for my front door.  It's perfect! 
(until the "It's A BOY" sign gets hung up in 3 weeks!) 
I liked the spring flowers so much I decided to save my backyard from a FEW of the coming dogwood flakes and brought some inside the house.  This was an idea sparked by ANGEL... the true craft woman.  

After that I cleaned the walls and door frames in my house.  Oh and all the spindles on the stairs where little grimey precious hands hold on.  Then I took a nap, went to Brusters and came home to blog.  There will be another update tomorrow! 

Off to make dinner... it's Mexican Monday!
