One Room Challenge: Week 4

This week I have a lame post because not much happened. I had a busy weekend attending a phenomenal Biblical Counseling Training Conference! If you don’t know what that is, feel free to message me and I’d love to share 🙂

Anyway, on my way out of town to the conference I had 15 extra minutes to stop at my local ReStore that people have been telling me I HAVE to check out. Well I am glad I did, and glad that even though it was a brief visit I got exactly what I needed!

I found hardware for my dressers for $0.25/piece! This was a HUGE praise to God for providing because I was feeling discouraged that I wouldn’t find anything. I have pretty much hit my budget ceiling so only spending $8.00 on hardware was a major WIN.

I plan to spray paint them and maybe give them a vintage look too… this hopefully will happen this weekend along with having a good friend come help me cut and hem my window curtains.

Other than that, I did a lot of waxing on my dressers little by little because: 1) I no longer had one whole day to devote to it, 2) it took way longer than I thought, and 3) I needed to give my hands and arms time to recover because I am a weakling and could not handle it all at once! As of now I have just ONE section left to wax…. whew!

One minor hiccup is that there are 2 places for hardware on my dressers that are a different size than all the others. The difference was so slight I didn’t notice it at all when taking the old hardware off. When I went to go try the new hardware on I realized that in only these 2 places they don’t fit. I am not sure what I am going to do to remedy this situation, but I suppose the most logical solution would be to drill new holes… :/

I also received something I ordered in the mail which I was super excited about. My sister-in-law told me about a groupon for 70 or 80-something percent off a canvas print. I have always wanted to order our favorite wedding picture on a canvas print so I figured this was my golden opportunity. I got the biggest size :-O but it’s gorgeous!

I can’t wait to get these details together and take pictures of the final look.

I think the only other thing I might need to buy are some new candles, or a few decorative pieces to sit on the dresser or shelf.
