DIY: Dresser Makeover

Today I am finally sharing my big makeover I actually did a long time ago. I need to get better at making and posting. So lets get started:

Love this vintage bird dresser. She shows exactly how she painted it....step by step instruction. DIY
My family got this dresser before I was born and it has pretty much been mine since then. For the longest time I've been wanting to paint it but just never got too. Now  it stood as a focal point in our bedroom and it needed a facelift. 
And here is how I did it!

PB & J Stories
 So I am doing a lot of rearranging at my house. Organizing and rearranging my bedroom (which I can't wait to reveal) meant finding "homes" for various furniture pieces. One of my antique childrens table & chair set will be be in the stairway...and I want it to be nicely decorated and welcoming. So where did I go for inspiration? Yep, Pinterest! Here are a few pictures I enjoyed.

New Birds


Welcome my two new birds! A turquoise male parakeet named Teal'c and a blue female named Nila (blue). This was their first time out of the cage.  Those two really know how to fly! Compared to my birds I bought in the past (at a pet store) these two are just so much calmer than these two I bought (at a breeder).

Summer Bucket List


So during the last days of school we worked on this project in school. The plan was to draw ourselves with big sunglasses. In each of the glasses we were suppose to draw a picture of something we are planningon doing this summer.

So what do I have on my summer bucket list....well it probably is more of a "To-Do List":

My new clock I got for my b-day



Listening:
In school we are leaning 6+ songs for our school graduation. So we are listening (and singing with) recordings of the songs. Two of them I enjoy: "My Sins are Gone" and Give of "Your best to the Master"

Watching:
We rewatched the Lois &Clark: Adventures of Supermann Series. They have a great story line & good morals! Then we watched two Hallmark series: Sealed Signed Delivered and When Calls the Heart
