This will be a rambly post to be sure. Life just seems rambly right now. I feel like we are on fast-forward and I'm hanging onto the tow rope. I feel humongous although I am told daily no one would ever guess I am 33 weeks along. That's all great and such, but I weigh more than I have in my entire life and I'm bigger than I was with the other three. And I have 7 weeks to go. Yikes.
Tired. I am so tired. The acid reflux and insomnia I experienced with Rosebud are back with vengeance and I am convinced more and more each day that I am having another girl. Some days I wish I knew (like when I see super cute Christmas sweater dresses for a baby girl or when washing newborn clothing and finding out I loaned out/never got back most of my newborn boy clothes). Most of the time though I'm glad I don't know.
I bought this little dresser at a garage sale (At LMM's school of all things). We have zero extra dresser space for baby clothes, and just about zero space to even put a dresser, so this is going to be it for awhile. I can't say I was loving the look of it though.
Here's the finished product sitting in our dining room. I was happy with the results!
Stripper: $9.99 (but there was enough left over to do a table I have out in our shed next summer)
Paint: 50 cents (look at the clearance shelf in Lowe's for paint that they didn't make the right color...super cheap!)
Knobs: 4 @ $.88 each
Knob Paint: Already owned!
I figure all in all it was a little over $15 for the whole project (if I half the price of the stripper seems how it goes to two projects). Not too bad.
This week both boys had Halloween parties at school and are sugared up enough to last till Christmas, let alone a party at a family friend's house Saturday and Trick-or-treat Monday night. Good thing we give all the candy away!
