Simple Friday's: DIY dresser painting and small annoucement

Oh this week has gone by so fast, but I am glad it's Friday and excited to get my Simple
Friday's series back on track.  I wanted to share my upcoming paint project that has been 
calling my name now for several months.  We bought this dresser and the matching night
stand at a local consignment shop for $100.  Both pieces are in excellent condition and with 
a little love and paint they'll look brand new.  

The dresser came with these two mirrors, but I feel like they really 
date the dresser.  I do love the shape of them and might be able
to use them somewhere else.  I'll hang up another mirror over
the dresser, maybe something more modern. 
excuse the mess....we're always moving something around and I think 
my daughter is a lot like her mama :) 

Here's my daughter's night stand I painted a couple months ago, the
details are here. It's holding up well considering her roughness
at times and two coats of polyurethane.  I'm always amazed what
a little paint can do to just about anything. 

Big news here at Our Blue Front Door, drum roll please!

It's official, I bought my domain name and my blog can now be found at

  7. Lookin good!! I'm only slightly ahead of momto8 there...I would like to have my domain, but am clueless as to what that would entail to move it over. Blogger is so simple to use, I'm stressed I couldn't handle a big ol blank website.
