One Project Down

Finished painting the side table and absolutely love it! Not too bad for and $8 thrift store find. I attached fabric to the front inserts, and spray painted it white since it was dinged up and had that old yellowing paint that so many pieces from other decades have. I should be a Spokesperson for spray paint I love it so much, and believe in it :) Now onto the next ten things to finish in my daughter's soon to be Big Girl room. Bring it on!

Here's the side by side comparison of the before/after (but before I painted it)

A Start on the Big Girl Room

So my daughters growing up/getting kicked out of her room to make room for the new baby. I'm too lazy tonight to tell step by step or explain things, instead I thought I would show you in a series of before/after photos. 

It's not done yet and were are kinda taking our sweet time moving here things/clothes into. I thought I would show a little of what we've accomplished so far.

Latest "Simple Baby Blanket"

I love making these simple baby blankets for family and friends. It's definitely my go to gift that I really love to give out.  
Here's why

1) They're bigger then store bought ones. Don't get me wrong they're not massive but they're the perfect size for laying down for tummy time or draping over a carseat. I was sad with some of my favorite blankets for my daughters I really couldn't use a bunch because other then looking cute they didn't cover the basic needs of what I needed a baby blanket for haha.
2) Nothing is more special then home made. It says I completely thought of you when I picked out this fabric. I didn't just grab something off the shelf on the way to your baby shower or hospital room. They're is absolutely nothing wrong with store bought  but there is something undeniably special about homemade. I had a baby before I started sewing so I know :D
3) They're cute but only take about 45 min!

This one I made for one of my husbands good friend's first baby. Him and his wife are so sweet and they're little one is such a doll.
I went with Alexander Henry's Zoo Pool flannel because the new Daddy is a Native of South Africa. I wanted something that reflected his home for his son and it was this or surf boards :) 

My husband holding Collin. It was love at first sight ;)
Did I sell you on them? Okay then use this Tutorial 
  Here's another one of them I made for another special baby

I've made them out of fleece and flannel, flannel and flannel, and flannel and minky. All and any of these options work great.
