One of the things I love the most about owning a home vs renting is the small home impovements we get to do. And I said get, not have to do. I've noticed that this spring we've really had the bug. Every Saturday we are at home depot buying and looking at new things to do and improve.
This weekend I finally decided that my boys dresser needed painted.
It was a hand me down from Kevin's parents. Some of the drawers are being held together with duct tape, and wood glue, but all in all it's very sturdy. I simply sanded it, painted 3 coats of behr paint and primer in one, and spray painted the knobs bright orange.
I figure if we need the dresser for anything else I can just change out the knobs.
Cody loves loves loves to help me sand. He's good at it too, so I let him start on that while I work on the dresser. He asked about 1,000 times to paint, but I decided to leave the really messy part to me.
We also added rain gutter book shelves in their room. I LOVE THEM.
Kevin also stated that "Pinterest is ruining his life." and I just laughed at him.
That poor kid gets worked to death, and we love him.
