I cant tell you how many times I have heard the words " You are such a Martha Stewart" (haha) I just love crafting, diy, painting, sewing, and home decorating. It gives me great satisfaction to look around my house and say " I MADE THAT!"

New Tables and DEAL ALERT

   Ok so here is the deal, when we bought our house we took measurement of our bedroom to make sure our new furniture would fit. Well it did, but we had to put it on the window wall. After living with it this way for 18 months we learned a few things. Not only was it hard to open the drawers to the dresser because the bed was too close, but one of the night stands was over the vent.

 Hot summer + vent covered= one HOT Momma!

   Well 2 weeks ago I had ENOUGH, and I moved my bed on the "bed wall" The one without a door or window on it. We LOVED it, the room opened up so much! The dresser has lots of space, but ( I know there is always a BUT) something was off. Only one night stand would fit and our closet doors open. :( I was really bummed for a day or two, but then Greg said lets just get new tables. I LOVE this man! After searching the web, and craigslist for days I found these babies at Target for $27.99. ( I was going to add a link to target, but they repriced them to $70.00 again) We looked at them last year when they were $75 and loved them, so to find them on clearance and still in stock was a huge surprise! ( and major blessing) Here they are in the room!

P.S. They came already put together :) SCORE!!!
