Back when I was nesting (preparing for a new baby by giving my old baby a brand new bedroom), I met one of the greatest loves of my life. PAINT!!!
Not just any old paint, American Paint Company - Chalk and Mineral base paint. I cannot tell you how easy it is to use, it's safe for a kids bedroom, and it gives the best distressed look to old furniture. Basically, I became so obsessed with this paint, if things weren't nailed down they were likely going to find themselves with a shiny new coat of paint. It was bad. Good thing I was really pregnant at the time and eventually my energy fizzled out. I could only do so much.
Here are some of the items that were subjected to my nesting obsession:
1. Toddler swing - bought for 5$ at antique shop
Picture frame - 20$ at antique shop
Wooden plaques - 24$
Old hutch - 50$ at yard sale
Here's how they ended up in Hazel's room...
Ok...I didn't paint this mirror. I bought it at an antique shop just like that. Hazel loves to sit in front of it and talk, read, and dance.
I decided to hang her Christening gown instead of leave it in the closet.
This is the hutch I bought for $50 and painted. OBSESSED!!!
How much do I love that she's closing the door on me already???
I think she likes her new room...
