My Beautiful Sprout Fairy

This is how my daughter dressed for hallowe’en this year. This afternoon is her party at school, then she has two house parties after school.

I’m participating in The DIY Showoff’s Halloween Costume Party. Head on over to see what other’s have done. (it’s down at the bottom of the page, after the Fall Festival.

Updated dresser

I finally completed the dresser.  It was a lot of work and it’s not perfect, so don’t look too closely :0)

It took sanding, priming and two coats of paint.

Here is the before:


and after:

It looks very small in this photo, but it’s not. I have 15 foot ceilings in my living room. Not an easy room to decorate.

The purpose of this redo was so that I would have somewhere to put all of my balloon supplies.

I’m linking up to the Saturday Nite Special over at Funky Junk Interiors. Go on over and see what others have done to their junk.

And also to The DIY Showoffs party, just cause I'm so darn stinkin' proud of this transformation.
