The summer before Porter was born, when I was excitedly fixing up a nursery, I found a really cool changing table at a garage sale. I fell in love with it instantly. The price was right and it had a super cool vintage feel to it. The only thing I didn't love was the color. It was a minty green with really small brown paint spots on it. I really like to paint and fix things up so I bought it thinking I could give it a quick paint job. Of course, being pregnant, working, and trying not to gain a million pounds (unsuccessfully:>) didn't allow for a lot of 'crafty' time. By the time I had Walker I was able to get the changing table painted. I really wanted to do something red but the floor in their room was pink and we couldn't afford to change it so instead I went with a baby blue color on the table. I liked it. I didn't love it, but I liked it. Well, this week, with renewed energy and only five years after the initial purchase I have finished it the way I wanted from the beginning.


What do you think?

You are amazing! How you find the time to do all these cute projects is beyond me! I only have 2 kids and most of the time I feel like I can barely get the essentials done! You are my idol. By the way, I love the color!

It's great Karli! I've discovered I like painting things. It's so easy to change a room's (or a piece of furniture's) personality. It looks like Canada is agreeing with your family. The birthday pictures are priceless!

We miss you!
