Laundry Room

As you have seen in my previous posts...I put shelves in my laundry room to hold all my laundry baskets.
Well the other side of the laundry room has been neglected. With one standard shelf from our builder there it left a lot to be desired. I have been eyeing some utility cabinets at lowes and home depot for about five years.
When we got our tiny tax return I had to finally do something!! I went to home depot an loaded the cart with the gigantic box the cabinets came in. Then when walking to check out I saw the exact same cabinets put together already and $10 cheaper!!! SCORE!!!
The before picture is EMBARRASSING The laundry room became a catch all! Do not laugh!!.
Installing the one piece cabinet by myself was VERY tricky but I did it. Loooove the storage.
Enjoy my "blueprint". ;--)))

Now to paint my new little shelf..

Prom Night at Bunco

Like I said in my last post ....last minute. The only thing I had that remotely resembled a formal gown was a bridesmaid dress.
My friend did an awesome job decorating for "prom". It was a great night!!!

Pajama Jam Bunco

Of course I wait until about 2 hours before bunco starts to try and find a funny outfit. This particular bunco was a pajama party so who else to call but my sister in law Teresa. I knew she had bought her kids footsie pajamas for Christmas and was just hoping my 16 year old nephews would be big enough for me to squeeze into. My SIL thought the pajamas were 14-16 boys. I thought for sure they would work. Well when my hubby actually brought them home they were only a 10-12 boys!!!
There was no way I was squeezing my big booty into those pjs. Well that was until David and I teamed up to get them on. One inch at a time we zipped and pulled and squashed every inch in those pajamas!!! It took about a half and hour to complete and when we were done it was VERY TIGHT!!! I could not sit. It was hilarious and got the reaction I was looking for but man was it tight!!!!

Old Door=Headboard

My friend recently moved into a brand new townhome!!! Sooo naturally our creative minds jumped into action. I was able to find this old door on a Craigslist type classifieds and we turned it into a headboard!!!
Started with lightly sanding it to clean and remove any debris.
Painted it a seafoam like color. (Think shabby chic).
We distressed it. Hit it with the back end of a hammer, screw drivers and socket wrench to really get the damage we wanted.
Then we glazed it with a Kwail Paint glaze and viola!!! Gorgeous!!!
Can't want to post pics of the whole room!!
