Remember your childhood!

I have to write this down before I forget. That child of mine Eli is continually cracking me up and I'm going to need all of these recorded for his future family!

So Tony came home the other day and told me a funny little story about Eli and his teacher Mrs. Moore. Apparently it was recess time and Eli was hanging around Mrs. Moore talking and she told him he should go and play with some of the other kids because she isn't any fun because she's a boring adult. Eli's response..."well maybe you just need to remember your childhood."

Kyla's new dresser!

I've been looking for a dresser for Kyla for quite a while now and have not been able to find anything....until last Friday. Our neighbors were having a garage sale so I just walked over to see if they had anything and there was this beautiful white dresser. I went to check out the price and guess what.........$5!!! Can you believe that? I bought it on the spot and had such great ideas for it! Here is the BEFORE picture.

Saturday Kyla and I went shopping for paints. She decided she wanted to paint it Ivory and I suggested that we glaze it (thanks to Brooke over at All Things Thrifty), and we painted the hardware as well. It turned out so nice if I do say so myself. And now Kyla has tons more room for all her clothes and hopefully they won't be all over her floor from now on! (a Mom can dream right!!?)

Anyway, here is the final product:

So break down of the cost:
Dresser: $5.00
Kilz primer (2 cans): $10.00
Krylon Ivory spray paint (4 cans): $12.00
Already had spray paint for hardware: $0.00

Total for project: $27.00

Not too bad for a beautfiul dresser like that!!
