the Craigslist chronicles

Not much has happened in my bedroom decor project lately due to the fact that it's taken a backseat to the tween room makeover extravaganza going on in my head. I know I always have excuses about my bedroom but it's true. However, a month ago the Hubs and I finished a fun project for our bedroom and I couldn't share it with you until now & Lord knows I have been dying to. It was featured on another blog and so I had to wait a month which meant this gal was counting down for the last 30 days. For those of you who hopped on over to the other blog a month ago to show you're support thanks so much and for those who may have missed it, I couldn't wait to share it with you today. It's another perfect example of taking an inexpensive Craigslist find and making it work for know you gotta' work it girl. Here was a piece I drew inspiration from (major thanks to the design Gods for creating Pinterest).
 I simply loved the idea of a small armoire which also served as a mirror for practicality. And this is how it translated to the Hubs and I. This is our original craigslist gal before...

and here she is all grown up.

It was super affordable which you know I love. Easy on the eyes and wallet =Winner! I know some people commented on the other blog on how beautiful it was before and I shouldn't have messed with it. I say blah to them and go eat a burnt cookie...JUST KIDDING...everyone is entitled to their own opinion and it WAS beautiful before, just a little to prim and proper for our space. It was also a child's armoire in its past life and I wanted to change that dainty feel to it. So I raise my fist and say I LOVE IT to all those haters haha (you gotta laugh at them, right?!). Tomorrow I will share the details of how we made it happen!

Until tomorrow my lovelies!


  1. Awesome. I totally agree with you, love the piece before...but yes, very childlike. Love what you did with it. Bravo :)

  2. I absolutely love this piece! Everything from the blue and white to the wood trim at the top, it's magnificent! You all did an incredible job with it!

  3. Just because it was beautiful before doesn't mean it's "you". Totally loving the after much better. It's in your house not theirs, so they probably should just go eat that burnt cookie! (In a loving, not hateful way!)

  4. Sure, it was cute before but now it's something special!

  5. ahh man Court you're too talented!!! I can't even spray paint picture frames properly - you DIY pros make it look easy. I love the newer beefier look. Xo

  6. Omg! I love it do much better! I can't wait to hear how you did it. One question....those cute little knit balls, you have kitties in the house? Mine would be all over that!
