Quick and Easy Vintage Nightstand Makeover – Vibrant New Look!

Quick and Easy Vintage Nightstand Makeover – Vibrant New Look!

About 15 years ago I picked up the most unique three drawer nightstand ever. It belonged to my great-grand-mother. I remember seeing it in her bedroom years ago, however it wasn’t a nightstand at that time, it was actually part of a vanity. I’m not sure why it was removed from the vanity and where the other side went, but I’m happy to at least have part of it. I love its details and rounded corners. It was white when I got it, I worked really hard to remove all the paint from it. I varnished it and used it as … {continue reading}

Happy Halloween! – From Dream To Reality #141

Happy Halloween

Happy Tuesday! Hope your week is off to a great start! If you follow me on Facebook, you might have seen a status update last week sharing that I will be going in to the hospital tomorrow for a surgery.

Learning to sleep again – #ONatural

Orange Naturals Sleep Homeopathic

I’ve had issues sleeping for the last few years. I spend my nights tossing and turning, aching back, and absolutely no dreaming. I’m not quite sure what caused my sleeping problems, is it my back, or perhaps adult issues? I just know that I no longer enjoy going to bed like I used to years ago. In fact, I dread going to bed because I know I won’t sleep. Ok, I probably do sleep (I doubt I’d be able to function without sleeping), but it’s not a good sleep.. it’s probably more like my body shutting off a couple of times … {continue reading}
