CAUTION...WET PAINT...another T to T Nursery project!

Ok...Ladies...I am back...well I am back on a borrwed computer and have really missed participating in all the memes! BUT...the good news is that our PROJECT NURSERY is coming along!
Today I'm sharing a little TRASH to TREASURE...
ok...so the pic of the hutch that I saved from the neighbors burn pile is upside down....but you get the idea...actually it is laying on its side on the prep table outside.......but anyway.......
EVERYONE rolled their eyes when I said that it would be PERFECT for on top of the dresser (that was mine since 1977) and that it would give plenty of storage for the nursery!
Now...you know how a project gets when someone has rolled their eyes...and said it can not be done...oh SWEET PROJECT DETERMINATION....I'll show you all!
Now...there must have been a drawer...hmmmm...shall I make a drawer? or shall I just cut out the wood runner there for the purpose of a drawer?????
Hmmmmm......I have another trash to treasure project for the top of the dresser that is taller and needs more space anyway.....so...hacksaw...here goes.....wood filler....here goes....sanding...here goes.....MORE sanding...keep going.....primer...here goes.....paint here goes....... screw that baby on top of the dresser......
And what do you know......ADORABLE........there to you all whom rolled your eyes.....
And lol...they thought I'd never use a laptop either......
Ok....while I go paint the sweet little rocker ( see it in the pic near the ALMOST finished hutch)you all go over and visit our dear hostes to see more treasures!

  1. Wow, this has to be the best trash to treasure ever. Way to go. I too love a bit of negative comments when I am trying to do something. Oh yeah, I WILL get it done and it WILL be wonderful. Good job it is beautiful. I can't wait to see the finished room.


  2. Hey! thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!
    very nice job on the t2t hutch! We don't have burn piles around here, but I do a lot of curb shopping! :)

  3. Oh, you're such a Grammy!
    This is going to be a room full of love...you must show us the room when it's all complete, depicting everything that you did, step by step, so that we know just what all you transformed from trash into treasure! Can't wait to see the completed project! It looks terrific so far! Amazing, what a clever little ol' wench you are dear girl!

  4. How cute! You did an awesome job! And I get you - telling me it can't be done only feeds my determination!

    Have a fabulous week!


  5. I do remember what fun it was to decorate the baby's room. Pretty in pink redo. Mine was in blues. I also remember what fun it was expecting. I had waited 13 years for the moment. Really longer than that but trying for that long. Congratulations!

  6. Oh, that turned out lovely! You did a great job. :)

  7. That is a fabulous addition to your list of things well done! I enjoyed seeing it. The new nursery is really coming along, and I enjoy your updates, Grandmaw! Have a good day!

  8. Amazing job! It doesn't even look like the same piece of furniture. Stinkin' cute!

  9. That is soooo cute! What a transformation! This is going to be the best grandmother's baby room in the world! laurie
