This weekend.....

My little coffee break.....

I have been busy this weekend doing some spring cleaning......
Like the dreaded windows....
But with this lovely warm weather we are having I wanted a  perfect view of that bright sunshine!

 So excited to have the roses blooming! I don't have alot but I love being able to clip fresh roses
for the house It's amazing what a difference a bit of fresh flowers can make! Not only a touch of prettiness
but a wonderful mood lifter!

 I sure wish I would of done a before and after pic of this dresser, I  do seem to work on a spur of the moment kinda of way & usually once I'm into the project I think about what a great before and after pic it would be. Kinda like my coffee table in the pic above this one, it was a dark wood and now it is so much brighter painted white, I will have to get a better pic.
Anyway the dresser was already white, but kinda of a dull looking white with brass knobs.

So got that sudden urge to repaint & Hobby lobby had their knobs  1/2 off {Sweet!}
I had the white paint already, so just the cost of the knobs which was around 13.00 bucks
Can't complain about that and very pleased with the redo!

How about your weekend?
 Any fun projects?

Oh such a great dresser! & that cottage gardens mag looks mighty interesting!
I see you have a wee milk glass tea light holder...I use mine for flowers too as I am afraid a candle will break it!
Thanks for sharing!
