Multiple Makeovers

Sometimes things in my house get multiple makeovers.  I like to repurpose things and move them from room to room and sometimes they don't always work when I move them to a different room so I spruce them up a bit.  For instance, this cabinet we had in our guest bedroom is now in the nursery.  It would have worked perfectly fine if I had kept it white but I just couldn't help adding another fun pop of yellow in there.  

So, I'll remind you of the first before, a $29.99 cabinet from Goodwill


and the first after, I liked it but just wanted something different for this room...


and now the final, for now, after :)  The color is yellow magnolia by martha stewart for anyone who is interested.  I used frog tape to tape off the white square, worked like a charm.


see those bookshelves peeking out on the side?  I borrowed the idea from the talented freckles chick's nursery for her new baby girl.  If you haven't seen it definitely check it out.  Since we are short on storage space in this room, making the most of the areas we have is really important.  So, I added these acrylic greeting card displays to the side of the cabinet.  There are several websites that sell them but mine had to be smaller than most to fit this narrow cabinet.  I found them here for around $4.50 each and they fit perfectly!  




I added her monogram to this lampshade we already had using my silhouette and some vinyl.


The mirror was repurposed as well.  It went from brown to metallic gold for a little more glam.


the nursery is really starting to come together, speaking of coming together, our family of two will be a family of 3 in only 12 short weeks!  Where has the time gone?!?
