I just noticed that this is my 600th post. Cool. That's amazing, especially considering I have been posting only a few times a month these days.
Anyway, when Paul and I got married, the only piece of furniture he had to contribute was this ugly dresser:
It's a short dresser, so you'd think it would be perfect in a kid's room ... but since it was originally on a boat, the drawers are too hard for kids to open.
Oh, and I need to back up. I guess Paul did come into the marriage with this hum-dinger of a chair:
Anyway, Becca has been using this little dresser, and I saw at a boutique that they had put fabric on the front of a dresser to make it look nicer. So we decided to try it. Turns out Becca and I have VERY different taste. I wanted something colorful with blue in it. We found the perfect fabric, but since it was from a "Young Women's" line, she wouldn't touch it, because she is no longer a Young Woman. Sigh. Fabric store worker, you didn't help by telling us that tidbit ...
So we FINALLY found something we agreed on (at the third fabric store!) and got to work. I still would like more color, but I think this is a huge improvement from where we were:
Now Becca is making matching pillows and will take them all off to college next month so I don't have to look at the poor dresser anymore. :)
