The Happy Camper Dresser Makeover


I've been wanting to paint a piece of furniture green for some time, but haven't really been inspired with the right piece. 

That was.....until I found this antique dresser last weekend.  I went to Home Depot to check out the selection of green paint and fell in love with Behr's "Happy Camper" green....

UPcycled Tahoe Blue Media Center

Just finished this little beauty over the weekend.

I get the best feeling when a project comes to life EXACTLY as I envisoned it would.   In blog-land, this vintage dresser-turned-Media Center doesn't seem like all that much of a stretch....but now that I'm working with Mr. Fix-It on projects....I have a lot of convincing to do.  He is a carpenter by trade - even though he doesn't do that for a living - and I am a visionary - with no carpentry skills.... So, together we make a good team.  I just have to say "trust me" - a lot!

The other day I shared 
from my oldest daughter's wedding.
  You can see that post HERE if you missed it. 
Today I have some fun pictures of DIY Bridal Shower and Wedding Decor from my 2nd daughter's wedding, which just happened to be 3 months after the first....
That was ONE BUSY YEAR for me!
