I have been extremely busy with work, my daughter's school projects and doing things around the house. I have a full-time job which sometimes requires 12 hour days!!! Anyway, I don't want to bore you with work stuff...so on to the fun stuff!
I couldn't wait to show you this beautiful piece of furniture which my daughter named "Bonita." I will be back with more pictures of my daughter's room, but in the meantime, please enjoy the quickie! ;)
I found this dresser on craig's list about a month ago. The lady selling it was a little crazy - well, maybe A LOT crazy! She wanted $600 for this beat up dresser because according to her, everyone in blogosphere and their mother are buying these to refinish them and selling for lots of moolah. Well, true; however, this piece of caca is not worth $600! After exchanging about a million emails, she finally lowered her price to $200. It is a lot more than I wanted to pay for, but it's an solid wood piece and extremely heavy.
Here's the before:

and here are a few after shots (sorry for the poor quality photos...these were taken w/my iphone and it never occurred to me to take pictures while it was sitting in my garage):
As soon as my daughter and I clean her room and make it "picture" perfect, I will be back with a brand new post of her room which has been a work-in-progress for the past couple of months.
