Thrifted Treasure ~ July

Happy Monday, y’all!! I hope your weekend was amazing! I feel quite accomplished, I stayed inside all weekend, trying to get my house clean, and work on several unfinished projects that I have going on in my house. I still have a lot to finish, but I made progress, which is a huge win for me! After all the room switches happened here, I am finally getting around to helping my boys decorate their “new” rooms. I started in my seven year old’s room. It seemed only natural, whereas all the room switch-a-roos happened because he wanted a “cool” room, and was sick of living in a “cute” room with his little brother. We started by hitting up the thrift store for a cool dresser. He spotted this one, and knew it must have been in a cool room once. While he thought the stickers were awesome, and gave this dresser such a cool vibe, I saw the cute shape, and we both knew it would be perfect! I peeled the stickers off, sanded it down, and then gave it a quick new stain and seal. I was REALLY hoping to save time by cleaning it up really well, and being able to put it in his room without sanding and staining, but there were so many stains in the wood, that it needed to be sanded and redone. It is the perfect size; room for all of his clothes, and even extra room for a drawer full of his treasures and things that he doesn’t want his little brother to touch. After A LOT of convincing, my sweet boy let me help decorate above his dresser. Yay!! It’s always so much fun to see what one trip to the thrift store can bring. This thrifted dresser really was the starting point for his room. Once the dresser was in the room, everything else came easy. I can hardly wait to see what thrifted treasures my blogging friends have found this month! Click on the links below to check them out too!
