New/old Buffet

Been looking for a buffet for the dining room for a while now,found this one out in Sun City West on Craigslist, let's just saw an hour's drive from where I live. It is definitely the pricey-est piece I've bought on Craigslist. But it is also the nicest. It is a Drexel solid wood buffet, even has wheels on the bottom! All I did was cover it in the Klean Strip Sander deglosser, that I got at Walmart, with 2 coats, let dry overnight, then used a free pint of paint I got from Ace Hardware for some promotion they were having to promote Clark + Kensington paint and primer in one, I got it in Bella Luna, painted 2 coats, distressed edges with a brown glaze, sealed it and voila!!! What do you think? My hubby thought I was crazy painting that beautiful cherry wood, but I like to think I updated it. :)

Can play sign

I couldn't take it anymore with the neighborhood kids ringing the doorbell 20 times as soon as school was out, so I made this sign to deter them the urge to ring the doorbell. Thank goodness they can read ;)

Baby name board

At work someone requested a baby name board for her little one, I think it turned out ok. Boys are so much harder to do.
