Our weekend and another project

I hope everyone had an Awesome Easter.  We did!  We started hiding eggs on Thursday night.  I have a 4 year old and he thinks hunting for eggs is so FUN. (but wondered why there wasn’t candy in all of them)  I tried to explain to him there would be candy when the Easter Bunny dropped some off. 
The kiddos before we went to church!
Me, Carson and Harley dog (Harley is not a good picture taker)

I had took off on Friday so I was able to get a lot of stuff done.  I finally finished my entryway table that I bought in MARCH!  Hey I'm a busy girl.
This is what the dresser looked like when I bought it.  Old, brown, broken and lonely.
I had a hard time deciding on Red or Turquoise.  Both would look great because the wall it is going on is STILL white and big. (hopefully that will be another project to get done in the future)  I went with RED.  I didn’t prime this dresser.  I just sanded it a little, took the handles off, filled the knob holes and repaired a couple drawers.   I used our new spray gun and some red paint from Home Depot(not sure the color).
I decided to do glaze on this piece too.  I love the way the glaze looks when finished and it covers up some of the imperfections on my hubbys paint job.  (I found a few drips)  But not going to complain because he was helping me.
I really wanted to use the original knobs on the bottom 3 drawers but one of them was broken.  So it wouldn’t work out the way I wanted it to.   We ended up drilling out the holes that I patched up. haha  I wanted to put 2 on each side instead of one.  I found some clear knobs at hobby lobby that had been antiqued, and they were half off and had 16 in stock.  So it was an easy choice for me.
Here it is finished!  I'm in Love again.
I will be putting some decorations on it and adding more to the wall behind it soon, but wanted to take a picture of it since I just finished it last night.  I love my cute rug from Hobby Lobby. (half off too)  I just love Hobby Lobby.  Don’t you?


Don’t Forget!
