Kitchen Floor!

I actually finished this last week, but blogger has been crazy to me. I finished it about 12:30am Friday night. I like it but I'm not 100% sold on it. So far it's holding up really well! We had a bbq on Saturday so lots of people walking on it and I have a toddler who took her big wheel, plastic lawn mower, shopping cart and stroller all over it.

It's hard to tell that the new floor is actually this color :

Cool Cucumber by Behr.

Here is an up close of the detail

Just simple stencil I got at Michael's. Overall a really easy project, two coats of primer, two coats of paint and four coats of poly. Totally a big differece!

Kitchen Floor

The floor is now primed! I can't believe the difference it has already made.

Coming Out of Hiding!

I have been feeling uninspired lately. But I think my new project will fix that. I am painting my kitchen floors tonight... I figure with the way they look right now I do not have much to lose. Here are my befores!

Ugly, ugly UGLY!

Dresser Done!

Happy Monday! I actually got around to painting the dresser I bought last Thursday! I went with black... I really wanted a fun bright color but nothing seemed right in the room.

Anyways here's the before:
I loved the feet on it and the handles! And the size, ok I love it all!


I scrubbed these handles forever!!! But totally worth it! I like the way the gold looks on the black.

 And this morning, Layla opening all the drawers!

I also found another dresser this weekend, for Layla's big girl room! At a yard sale for $10.00! I'm thinking a light pink color for it.

Have a fabulous week!!
