Before & After - dresser

Jake was off on Monday & Tuesday for President's Day & Winter Break. Lily & I LOVED having him home. He is so great with Lily - such an awesome Dad & a wonderful husband. It was so nice to have help while I worked.
Jake & I have been working in the baby's room. We got rid of our full size bed this weekend (praise be!). I have been making a yard sale pile as I organize & sort & reorganize, etc.... On Saturday we went & got paint; Jake painted the dresser yesterday & today.

BEFORE - This dresser was my great-Grandma Tuttle's. It's been in the family for a while.

Lily played while Daddy & Mommy worked.

AFTER - We saw this HERE & loved it. I already knew that we were going to keep the walls grey & accent with yellow. So we totally copied the idea.
I have already picked out & shipped fabrics to my mother-in-law for the baby's quilt. Remember when she made Lily's baby quilt? Now I need to sew drapes, recover a rocker & much much more.
