My "New" Dresser

Nine days into 2012 and I have my second goal accomplished: I finished painting our old mini-dresser. It is the first piece of furniture I've ever attempted to paint, and I am so happy with it. First I lightly sanded it, (with a little help). Then I did as follows:

The girls were always so eager to help. Other than allowing them to sand a bit, I let them stir the paint... and that was it. I'm such a mean mommy! But, I had a brilliant idea:

I had the kids actually paint their own stir sticks. What for? I have no idea! But, it worked! They were happy doing their thing...


...which left me happily doing mine.

And, here it is:


I gathered and painted items in my house to put in this new shelf unit above the dresser. I'm proud to say I did not spend a penny on anything in this project; everything I had on hand!


And, today marks the 6 week post-op from my c-section which means I'm cleared to exercise. No more excuses; it's time to move on to my health goals and resolutions for 2012!

And by exercising do you mean exercising or do you really mean something else?!?
