Rose’s new pink side table

I finished it! I could tell she was excited because the second it was in her room she had both sides and the drawer filled with books.

I chose the most saturated hue on the card because in the past I have picked other fun colors but went on the lighter side and when the project was done it didn’t have the pop that I wanted. I am still getting use to the color being so pink but Rose loves it. Plus it is a little girls room so pink is A-ok.

Putting the new table in her room gave me the motivation to rearrange her room. Now her toys are more organized and she won’t nail her head on the corner of the changing table if she is not careful.

My after-bed-time project

I am remembering how slow projects go when you have a newborn.Rose side table

I took months for me to finish Rose’s crib project because of lack of motivation and short time in between feedings. Now I have a three yr old that would love to help by smearing paint everywhere. So I am only working on the side table after bedtime.

In the morning Rose was so excited to see it was turning pink. So excited that she had to get some of her books to test it out.

Problem- Rose doesn’t have a light in her room. I need a place to put a lamp

Solution- I went to the consignment furniture store and bought a side table with good bones for $20. But I don’t like the style of it but with a little paint I can fix that.

I looked at buying new hardware but one handle was the same price as a can of spray paint. I wanted to stick to a small budget and didn’t want to pay any more so I chose the spray paint.
