Finally! It is DONE! Drum Roll Please!

BEFORE

The only progress picture I had. This is one of my sanding attempts.

AFTER!

It was a cloudy day and so hard to get a good picture of the color. I love it! It is the perfect shade of blue.

I LOVE the hardware!

I put some fun gift wrap paper inside the drawers. (From Marshalls last Christmas)

This had to be the world's longest project for me. I think I bought this desk from craigslist about 2.5 years ago. It sat in the garage until I decided what I wanted to do with it. Then it sat some more. I finally started sanding it last year, then I stopped. Then started again and started to stain it. But, I wasn't sure I loved it so I stopped. Poor JR wanted his garage back.

Then last month I stumbled across Danielle's Desk from Danielle Oakey Interiors. I instantly fell in love and knew that was what I wanted my desk to look like.

This is the picture of Danielle's desk that I fell in love with......I'd say this picture is a better idea of what the actually color looks like in real life.

I learned she used Rustoleums Protective Enamel Gloss Royal Blue 7727 and gold 51mm x 43mm BBZ Ring Pull's from Lee Valley. Check out her great questions and answers post HERE that had me running to Home Depot at the first chance I got. I tried Walmart and Lowes, but they didn't carry that color.


Hair Product Review

I recently was in need of some new hair products. I had a coupon for a John Frieda one, then I saw the L'Oreal New Studio Line and decided to give it a try too. I am not usually a sucker for advertisement, but the Eva Longoria ad next to the products sold me on it.



I bought the L'Oreal Studio Line body builder mousse and L'Oreal Studio Line Pumping Volume Spritz. I would defiantly buy them again!



I also like the John Frieda Luxurious Volume Root Booster I bought.


JR likes Suave professional for men styling paste, matte.

Madison Random Recent Pictures


I braided her hair because she likes it crimpy.




Madison LOVES grapefruit, just like me!! I can't eat one without her stealing half and part of mine.



My little picasso. She loves to paint, color, and do crafts.





Madison's Second Gymnastics Meet
