Random Summer

As you know I am a stay at home mom in the summer (another benefit of being a Teacher) so here are some things we have done or are doing around here:

Furniture Shopping

( School Desk )

I found this little cutie at the Salvation Army for 10 bucks! It was a funky green color and a little rusty but for 10 dollars I had to have it. I brought it home and the hubby offered to spray paint it for me. I am in love with this robin's egg blue color so the desk got a super duper power wash and primed and painted all in the same day. I think it is absolutely darling.

I was originally searching for a dresser for our son's room but stumbled across this dresser at an Estate Sale. I was not totally in love with the color but it actually looks pretty good in our bedroom and for 50 dollars...who could say no?!? Not me. The search continued for a good kid's dresser.

The perfect match!

(for a Cabin themed bedroom)

Last but not least...the kiddo's dresser!!!! I found this bad boy at Goodwill for a whopping 30 dollars. Man, am I on a roll or what?!? It is the perfect match for his cabin room and I need to hang some things above it but so far so good. I love it and even more importantly he does too.

Which do you like best?


  1. I like the mid-century feel of the grown-up dresser. We never have enough dresser space so I am always on the lookout for dressers too. Although with lack of wall space too, I always have to look for taller dressers.

  2. I love the desk! If you happen to find another one (what are the odds, right?) I'd love to snag it up.
