Donna has won a beautiful cuff from T's etc

As my daughter would say.... "preeeeeeettyyyyyyyy" :)

T's Etc. makes everything from beautiful necklaces to cuffs, and even infant bracelets like the little pink one in the following picture

They look pricey right? WRONG! That beautiful middle necklace is only $35! and the infant bracelets... a mere $5!
Now mosey on over and get one! :)
Thank you T's Etc for sponsoring for week 6!

And now for my least favorite part.... we've gotta say goodbye to Wendy at the Shabby Nest this week. Wendy, you are amazingly talented and I've loved your blog right from it's beginning. Thank You so much for being apart of SYTYCD!
Here she is introducing to us next week's theme: Things from Home Improvement Stores
(paint, nuts/bolts, wood, metal, nails, etc etc)

I was lucky enough to find this dresser on the tact...and in pretty decent shape to boot. When I first got it home, I painted it black. It sat like this for some time before I decided I just didn't like the black.
So I decided to give my free little dresser a makeover. I painted it a lovely robin's egg blue and added one of my favorite each drawer.

A little while later, I was lucky enough to happen upon another dresser on the curb. This dresser was in pretty sad shape, but it had a couple of drawers that looked pretty good, and the detailing was lovely, so I rescued the two drawers and brought them home.

I painted them with a single coat of white paint. I purposely didn't give the drawers more than one coat because I wanted them to look aged. I painted over the locks as well but then sanded them down to emphasize the pretty details.
Since the pulls on the drawers were a little worse for the wear, I added some fun ribbon in a brown polka dot.

With an open closet like this one, the storage has to not only be has to be attractive. Adding the sweet numbered dresser and the two rehabbed drawers, creates storage with personality befitting my fun boys' sock monkey bedroom. Thank heavens for found dressers!!

For more information on these projects, please join me at my blog, The Shabby Nest.

Once again... THANK YOU Wendy at the SHABBY NEST!
and see you all tomorrow for Week 7!
