She's at it again..

After refinishing the dresser that the TV is on, I thought the dressers in our room would be a breeze. I was highly mistaken. I couldn't sand down to the actual wood, but I was able to put a fresh coat of stain over what I had done and they managed to come out better than they were before. But will have to re-do them again eventually.

Also wanted to share a few of my new favorite things. I think I've become addicted to antiquing and tag-saleing. I tell Cony it's much cheaper to do it this way than to go shopping at Anthropologie. He agrees. (but I'm afraid anything would be cheaper than that store..)

$6 find at a thrift store..

you have such a knack for decorating it's inspiring...

good luck with the health problems. I know several people because of some instance or another can't get pregnant and I feel bad but as I have learned in my 30 years of life everyone is dealt there different trials and what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I know Megan you've been given these trials because you can handle them and some like me most likely couldn't. keep your head up and you'll get what you want out of life if you just stay on the right path! Love ya!
