I Am Freaking Awesome

But you already knew that, didn't you? These are pictures of the little side table we found for five bucks at a yard sale. It was ugly, but I saw the potential. Much the same line of thinking Frankie had when he met me. Darby and I painted it and added knobs from Hobby Lobby (my new obsession). I lined the inside of the drawers with scrapbook paper and Mod Podge.

Next, we found this flower and tin sign (which says "you are my sunshine") at Hobby Lobby (of course) and I just had to have them for Darby's room. They were both 50% off and I'm a cheapskate, so it was a match made in Hobby Lobby heaven.

And the crowning glory of Darby's room is her bed with the vinyl flowers my mom got at T.J. Maxx. Yeah, I could have made her bed, but that would have been a little pretentious, right?

So, not that you asked, but that is my little one's room. I try to make it beautiful for her and it is still a work in progress, but I'm liking it so far. Plus, her little garage sale table is so awesome!
What projects are on your plate?


  1. Nice Job Hillary!! The table is so cute!

  2. You ARE awesome!! Darby's room is so flippin' cute.

  3. I took Ella Keeney and we went to the Hobby Lobby together for the first time! We should have taken lunch, we were there that long! Fun place and that is a really cute table, you do rock!

  4. I love the knobs! And I need to find a local Hobby Lobby so I can see what the big deal is. I believe you that it's awesome. I'm just not crafty. Will they kick me out upon entrance?

    Gorgeous. It's seriously so awesome. And Frank knew you were a catch the moment he laid eyes on you. Don't deny it!

  5. Are the drawer pulls eye balls? The table looks great, Hill! I adore it!
    Well now that school is out, I am going to get to work on Darby's "Lucha Libre" pillow case =). I LOVE those flowers that mom found! When Kacey gets into the room upstairs I will have to look for something like that.


tell me what you're screaming
