The Cutest Spring Art Print

Since spring appears to be nowhere in sight, the only thing keeping me going is this print.

So cute and springy, right? And it’s only $5! Crazy! Sadly, it does not come with my gold antelope (or whatever it is).

Go get yourself a little piece of spring right here!

Seeing Double

This post may look a lot like my last post, I swear I’m not going crazy, it was the intention. Let me explain, a very good friend of mine loved the dresser that my husband and I updated, so I decided to do the same thing to another dresser for her wedding gift. See, makes sense now, doesn’t it?

Bottoms Up: My Bar Cart

A few months ago I scored this cart at the thrift store for only $7. I instantly knew I wanted to use it as a bar cart and paint it gold. I’m going to be honest with you here, I have the uncontrollable desire to paint everything in gold, so it was no surprise. And who doesn’t want their alcohol on wheels? It can go with me anywhere in the house. That’s all anybody can ask for.

The cart was in pretty bad shape and with the help of my boyfriend (and by help, I mean he did almost everything), we were able to transform it into the lovely little bar cart below.

Below is what it looked like before I jazzed it all up with liquor and other such things. It had to be sand blasted to remove all the paint, then primed and spray painted gold. There are probably a lot of other details, but I can’t help you with that since I didn’t do most of it.
