Hi, Friends! I can't believe it's Friday! Where did the week go! I got a little sidetracked on Tuesday evening when I went into the garage and found that our drywall ceiling seam was buckling! Yikes! We had a ton of heavy rain in the past week and Mark and I were afraid we had a huge problem - so we spent two days unloading everything from our attic - which is above our garage. Now, I don't know if your attic is like ours, but it was pretty full with a baby crib and mattress, toys being saved for grands someday, all my seasonal decor, and plenty of things that have been up there since we moved here 17 years ago! It was a BIG job to bring everything down and go through it! We found things that were up there from the previous owner that we never knew we had! We ended up with a huge pile to throw away and a smaller pile for a yard sale. I still want to go through everything more carefully and will probably have a lot more to sell or donate. In the end, the drywall seam buckling wasn't due to water damage, but from a few bins that had fallen onto an area that didn't have a wood floor. It's an easy fix - thank goodness! And, while the attic was empty, Mark got some plywood to make more floorspace for storage. And, that's how this week got away from me!
Here's what I intended to share with you on Tuesday! I purchased this pretty dresser for $60. It had a dark wood finish when I found it (and unfortunately, I deleted the before pic from my cell phone). Since I'm trying to lighten and brighten up around here, I knew it was destined for a paint makeover!
