Have I mentioned lately how much I love craige's list? The other day I was surfing it and found a dresser with two matching nightstands for $30, there was no picture, so I had to text for a picture. When I got the picture it was a bad quality photo of some black painted furniture, but it looked like it had nice details. I discovered a whole new ghetto of my town when I went to get them! It was an adventure, but when I got there, it was WELL worth it! Here are the two nigh stands before,
the night stands ALONE I would have paid 30 dollars for, but then the huge beautiful dresser came too!!! Here is the after shot. Some gray paint, light sanding to shabby chic it, and then I spray painted all the hardware, by the way ALL the hardware was included! Can you say steal?
AREN'T THEY BEAUTIFUL!!! It took everything in me to not keep them! I wanted $250 for all three, but sold them to a nice lady for $200! I knew they were going to a good home. $170 profit, not too shabby!

Oh my.. This weekend has been insane. My husband and I took on the task of catering a wedding for my husband's cousin. At first I was just going to do the cupcakes and cake, and my husband was just going to do the main dishes of pulled pork and potatoes. Then last week it got a little more crazy and we got added on the salads and other sides. Well, we did it!!! It was a crazy week, and a little scary that we weren't going to complete it all at times, but we did! Here are some pictures of what we did!

I finally moved into the world of technology and got a "smart" phone. One of my favorite features so far, is the craige's list app! I put in the criteria I am looking for, and it notifies when something in my criteria is posted. Last night, I got a notification for a FREE dresser! I was so excited I quickly e-mailed the listing. This morning, I went and picked up my free dresser! Sadly I forgot to get a before picture, but it was ugly... REALLY ugly. It was some nasty brown paint and gold handles. I painted the dresser red with a white damask stencil and then spray painted the knobs a nice shimmery brown.
I LOVE this dresser. I want to keep it, but I know it will sell and I am greedy.
