Tall boy dresser - Wedding Blessing

My son had been dating his girlfriend a couple years when she dared to ask me for it. Yeah she asked for a tall boy dresser I had sitting in my basement waiting to be painted and restored. Cynthia my son's then girlfriend asked me, "If I marry Julian one day, can that be our wedding gift?" I know what your thinking, "What? (insert mouth open) The audacity of her?" However, I have always admired her for her daring and forward approach. It has gotten her in some trouble but nonetheless I thought this girl is audacious, I like that about her. My son is a bit of an introvert and has a passive personality and she is spunky and outspoken, they compliment each other well.  I laughed off her request for months but she was quite persistent. I finally said jokingly, "OK, you can have it if you promise me at least two grandbabies." The joke stuck, the tall boy dresser has been my bartering tool for grandchildren or perhaps a dowry of sorts. (I'm kidding people).


Maddox - Mighty Warrior Nursery

I helped design my friends son's nursery. 

The theme came from this one verse found in the Psalms: like arrows in the hand of a might warrior. 
So we went with arrows and the nursery turned out beautiful. 

The color scheme: gray, navy blue, baby blue, cream, gold and a touch of red. 


The octopus table

My sister found this beauty of a table at a local antique market about 1 year ago. I recently found the pics and thought I would share them with you. 

This table looks like an octopus to me but its actually a parlor table. 


Duck Egg Blue Sideboard / Buffet

Saturday mornings are my favorite day of the week because its the day my husband and I go searching for antique pieces. I found this sideboard at an estate sale. I was looking for a buffet for my friends dining room. So when I spotted this beauty my heart skipped a beat.


Restoration hardware dining table knock off

We recently moved into a new house and after renovating our dining room we needed the perfect dining table.

After looking around for a dining room table and seeing the price tags attached to them we decided to build our own. 

We were able to design our table the way we wanted it and for a fraction of the cost.

I fell in love with this restoration hardware table but I didn't fall in love with the price.

{Price tag: $2995}
