Glam Girl Bedroom-Dresser and Prints

 When I last talked about my lil' girl's Glamour Room
It was almost done.  We needed a dresser...bad!

Well, we found one..and it looked bad.

Here is the before:

 We found this ugly, 1970's dresser for $20.
And after sanding and numerous cans of spray paint,
it finally became glamorous!

Again, I will give credit to my hubby.
Most of our projects, I do the hunting and the finding, and
have the vision and choose the colors.

He does the hard work.
Gosh, I love him for that....and he loves doing it with me,
so we've found something to do together.
My arm/hand is sooo sore from the minimal work I did do.

 It's a little cloudy here today, so it's hard to get
good, I am no professional photographer.
That is for sure!
And here you can see how it ties in with the zebra chair.
More on the making of that here.

 I used some frames I had, just sprayed them 
with white glossy paint and framed fabric that was used in the room
or that was left over from other projects.
Free...I like free, it gets me to do more projects!

 Here's a pic of us with the glamour girl herself.

Lastly, I used this bling frame.....
....and some fabric from the headboard and pillows, and made
a "T" for her initials.

She truly has the best room in the house, and we learned a lot.
Now, if she would, I could
be an even happier Momma!

Love how the dresser turned out! We painted Kyla's dresser when she was a baby and have changed the colors on the drawer fronts twice to match her bedroom as she has gotten older. Love how it turned out. You have a great eye for seeing past the old worn out to see the fabulous new! Wish I could channel some of that :-)

P.S. Do you sew pillow covers for someone if they ask really nice??
