This computer is down

So I finally got my buffet/dresser home! I lovvve it. Our living room finally looks like we are living there. Before our tv was on a tiny side table and the xbox and stuff were on the floor.. Cords were every where. It was ugly. So here are some picturessss!

These are the before.... Darcy wanted to be a part of the pictures.

I took out the drawers and painted them first...

Then i painted the actual buffet and this time unlike other projects i've painted i tried to be very patient and take my time so it would turn out beautiful. It was difficult. :)

And here it is all finished! Well... almost. The bottom right drawer didn't have a handle and the front of it has fallen off. That'll be fixed soon. And the top of it we decided to leave the original wood, it was chads clever idea, and I plan to stain it a darker brown but it'll still have the wood grains and stuff. But yeah.. !

I also lined every drawer with this newspaper book stuff that was wrapping paper i bought from target for a dollar a couple months ago. I thought it was adorable so i had to buy it and knew i'd find something for it eventually.

Here some decorations... I repainted the bird cage that use to be a bright blue.. and the bottle is a sparkling cider bottle chad was keeping in the craft room that i painted. The owl is a candle i bought a chapters in canada during christmas, and the little case he is in was actually once part of a gold clock. 

Here is kitty wanting to be in the pictures. 

And that is how i spent my nights after work for the past week!
