I ended up staying home from work yesterday because I felt horrible, and my boss told me to. I definitely have a raging sinus infection, luckily I got on some antibiotics so hopefully I will be getting progressively better from here on out. Luckily, Trevor was home yesterday so he was able to help me look after Knox. He LOVES when Trevor is home- he climbs all over him, hugs him, kisses him and lays there in front of him until Trevor tickles him. It’s so cute.
We’ve been scrambling to get everything ready for our garage sale on Saturday, and we’re finally making progress. It would be so much easier to just donate everything, but hopefully we’ll make a couple hundred dollars to put towards our playroom makeover. We really want to make that room conducive to lots of playing for two little boys, so we’re trying to clear up floor space and add lots of storage and organization. The other goal, of course, is to get the new baby’s room cleared out completely. Anything that doesn’t sell at the garage sale is getting immediately donated to our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore, so we are holding on to ZERO clutter!
Trevor has to disassemble our guest bed today so we can actually get into that mess of a room to clean it out. Hopefully it will be empty by next week so I can call and schedule the carpet installation. That room is only one of two left in our house with the hideous FOREST GREEN carpet. Blech! Once that’s done, we can go ahead and order the nursery furniture and let the decorating begin. I can’t wait! I do know that want an espresso crib, and I do believe I am going to refinish my Craigslisted dresser in a two-tone white and espresso paint job. Hopefully it turns out like I am imagining! Something similar to this, but I’ll be spraying our hardware with Oil-Rubbed Bronze paint so it will have a more metallic look:
Here’s a picture of the actual dresser (sorry it’s kinda blurry, it’s the pic taken off of Craigslist):
I love the lines, it’s originally from Ethan Allen, so it’s a really nice piece of furniture. We paid around $500 for Knox’s dresser that went with his crib, so needless to say, we’re saving a LOT of dough by refinishing this one ourselves! It’s hard to tell from the picture, but the whole dresser is kind of an ivory color, so I will have to re-do the whole thing. I’m excited to give this dresser a new personality!
