This is what I've been up to.....

Hello! This blog is going to be heavy on the pictures! Today is going to be around 90 degrees in Springfield!!! WOW! That puts me in the mood for a day at the pool! I can't wait for the beach in August!!!!!!!!!!
Well, here are some things I have been up to:

I am getting ready to put this on a headband so I can wear it around all summer! I love the button! Well, I just love buttons! Sorry for the fuzzy camera STINKS!!! :)

This is a sneak peak of our bedroom redo! We put a really cute and functional bench under the window! Older homes have tiny closets!! :(

Sneak peak of our new bedding. I still need to find the perfect blanket, sheets and maybe some more pillows!

We are changing out the knobs on the dressers we found on Craigslist! We will also be painting them! These chrome knobs we found for under $1 a piece. Score!

This is a shot at the before. I can't wait to show you the AFTER!!

This is Mr. Tim at work preparing our thrift store finds for spray paint....

He is going to be chrome!

These little cuties got a new paint job too! We are actually changing their color again....I really wanted them to be aqua, but we couldn't find that color originally.

Here they are before. When we bought them, they were still in there original packaging! Cool!

These are a few pics from our Memorial day BBQ!
Mr. Tim with some other people's children!! :)

That is about it! It is sooooo fun working on our bedroom! It is a slow process since we are doing it on a budget. But, I love finding random things and making it work! (Very "Design on a Dime"!) However....I'm still on the hunt for LAMPS!!!
Hope you all have a great day and enjoy the sunshine!

I hope Tim knows the children he took pictures with!! ha ha I think your bedroom is going to be really cute. I love the new knobs for your dresser. I have a bedroom suit I am considering doing that to myself. I just haven't found the right size knobs yet. You two are just too funny with your flea market finds! ha ha
