It's been really lonesome at times without my family and my friends.
There are sooo many days when I just want to call up my girlfriends and go have a margarita.
To top it all off, my oldest stayed back home with my mom because he is a senior in high school this year and didn't want to possibly lack credits for graduation and took his chihuahua (my constant companion) with him.
The divine Mr. M. saw my lonliness and decided to fix all that.
I fell in love...
Until I saw the $259.00 price tag.
I fell out of love.......quickly.
The other day while driving to the beach, I was curb cruising.
(It's like garage sale-ing, but freeeeee!)
He looked at me like I was mad.
Mr. M: "It's a busted up dresser."
Mr. M. "Huh?"
Me : "I want that dresser drawer."
Mr. M tried to take another route, but I quickly pointed out the way to the drawer and there she was.She was plain brown with handles but she had such charisma.
I knew that Shuga had found her bed
I painted her black and added small finials to the bottom corners.
I added two medium finials to the back of the drawer.
I know, I know. I forgot the "before" pics. I was really excited and she was really ugly.
I decided to Modpodge the inside of her bed using these tools.
I know you're thinking, "What's the spray adhesive for?"
Ladies, this stuff is awesome! Me and spray adhesive are like this (fingers crossed.)
Don't get me wrong. I luv me some Modpodge...Lord knows I do!!!
This stuff allows me to reposition my paper without it getting all wet.
I sealed it with Modpodge to give it a nice good shine and finish.
I had to use the steak knife. The six year old took the scissors hostage and is asking for a lofty ransome. I'm just keeping it real people.
I went to Hob Lob (my secret affair..don't tell Mr. M) and bought some iron on letters.
I just ironed them on to the pillow and placed it in the bed.
There you have it...Shuga's new bed.
She's in Puppy Love.
