Just a Quickie...

Greetings Everyone!

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 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:

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. 

I'm linking with the following:
