One year later...

Exactly one year ago today we signed the papers and got the keys to our home! What a year it has been...especially in the de-stinkifying, re-carpeting, painting, fixing everything, decorating and getting rid of the ugly sense! Here are some pictures (well actually A TON of pictures) showing our progress. Enjoy!

For Keeps

This little dresser was one that I had in my childhood bedroom- and before that came from a neighbor of my Nana's. So, it's pretty old. I was considering selling it at the shop, but after I finished it, I found a perfect spot for it in my home. Yay. (It seems I've been doing a lot of that lately).
Also, I swore I had a before picture of this, but apparently not. So, here is the before picture of the matching shorter dresser that goes along with it. As you can see, it was a lovely maroonish-red.

And the after- my favorite turquoise:

I LOVE these crystal knobs from Hobby Lobby
