Getting the Room Ready

Well we have no new updates.  We are still waiting on our court date.  Until then all we can do is wait.  Well wait and start getting Denver's Room ready.  Here are some pictures of a cabinet and a dresser Vanessa refinished/painted.

This first one is a cabinet that my grandad made a while back and has been passed along through the family.  When we received it, it was completely white.  So Vanessa stripped the paint then repainted it and added some designs to it.

This is the inside.

This is a dresser that was given to us.  It was originally an ugly white wicker dresser and I just wanted to throw it away.  But Vanessa was determined to make it nice.  So after some spray painting, it now looks good.

We had to put Denver's name on the cabinet because for some reason Bell thought it was hers.

We still have more work to do, but it's a start.  At this rate we seem to have plenty of time. 


  1. It looks like everything is coming together. I love the way you did the dresser. I wouldn't have known it was the same one!

  2. I love the wicker!!! The Africa on the cabinet is cool....your Grandad would be proud that you're taking such good care of his handiwork.

  3. I LOVE THE CABINET!!! Almost cried when I saw it! Vanessa did a beautiful job. Its just perfect! It's almost time! Cant wait!
