10 Minute Makeover

One of my very favorite blogs is The Nesting Place
Today she is having people link their makeovers to her blog....there are lots of cute things....go check it out!
I have been re-doing a few rooms in our house and I thought I would share them...
I don't have a before but this is the after...this is my dresser from when I was a little girl! It was part of my "big girl" furniture.... I painted it black a few years ago and it sits behind a chair in our living room....I was never 100% happy with the way it turned out so I decided to lighten it up a little! I painted it an antique white and then sanded it and did a fun glaze on it! I am still trying to get use to it but it really lightened up that corner of the living room!
We desperately need a new couch...but with our boys being 2 & 4 I decided it would be better to make a few pillows to spruce up the couch we have and try to get a few more years out of it!
I love my pink kitchen but I have never really loved the stuff that I had above my kitchen cabinets...I just moved around some stuff that we already had and painted some of the things that I wasn't crazy about...it's still a work in progress but I really like it a lot better already!
I made this little no sew table skirt for the living room...
I will post more when I'm done with everything!

Your dresser is so pretty! I love the layered mirrors. All of the items in the kitchen are wonderful! I love painting my finds to better suit me.

What a cute home you have. I love that dresser that you painted. The glaze is so cool. Your kitchen is also really fun - I love the pops of pink color along with the white cabinets and some black. Great combination!

And the pillows on your sofa are great!

I've really enjoyed visitng the link party participants' blogs. We've been in our apartment for 1 month, will only live there for one year but I still want it to be comforatble.
Thanks to Nesting Place I've made some changes too. I'm also looking for inexpensive ideas since we never know when we'll be in such a large space.
You did a terrific job. One truly gets a feel of who lives at this house. And isn't that why we decorate our homes?
