Hello There!

So...I think it's safe to say that blogging has fallen by the wayside for me. I started this blog fresh out of college when I had nothing to do but dream up new projects. Then, reality set it and I had to get a job(s)! Needless to say, I've been BUSY. Between working, and planning events for my brother's upcoming August wedding, I just haven't found the time to write. BUT! I am going to try and change that and get a couple of posts a week up. After the wedding I hope for it to be more!

No worries though, today I have something to share. Remember this post where I showed you a picture of a nightstand I snagged for $9?! Well, 6 months later, I finally decided to tackle it and give it a nice coat of paint.

In case you forgot, here is the before:

And here is the after taken with my iphone. I had all intentions of bringing it outside and photographing it better but alas, that didn't happen!

Clearly, Marley was trying to steal the show here. But overall, I love how the matte black paint which is 'Black Suede' by Behr really allows the brass details to stand out. I've been dying to add a bit of mid century design to my room and I think this fits the bill!

Have you refinished anything lately? Who is going to Brimfield this year?!
