When Grandma Donna passed away a few months ago we inherited a few things from her house.
Some things were good just the way they were.
Like this little orange table
I think its so perfect.
Its not the best picture but I think it's my favorite piece of furniture in the house.
Those are flowers from the funeral. 
The table now holds a tiny globe and some old books.

The other piece of furniture we got was a dresser for Ben.
Not attractive by any means but we needed a place for Ben's clothes.
Our old apartment had built in shelves in the closet so when we moved in our house we were out of luck.
I didn't like the color so I decided to attempt my first furniture remodel.

I think it turned out pretty cute.
Just don't look too closely at the paint job.
Its a chocolate brown with white outlining on the drawers and new hardware.
It wasn't too hard of a project but it did take me a while to complete just cause I got busy with other things after I started.

My next furniture project is a little sewing table from Grandma Donna's as well.
I'm not as motivated to start that one since I'm not really a sewer.
It will be fun though and who knows, maybe I'll learn to sew more than a strait line.
