Boring Furniture Is For Boring People

We don't have many store bought furniture pieces - many are thrifted furniture that my mom has refurbished into something that is truly one of a kind. It involves many hours of finding the furniture, sanding, painting, and glossing, but they are pieces of art (on which we sit)

The entry-way mirror. These are actually separate pieces - the table is mosaic-ed (seems to be a reoccuring theme!) while the mirror was painted to match. And that awesome butterfly in the reflection? I made it in 5th grade art class. I'm so talented.

The dresser in the getaway attic. The drawers (details below) are all different, and so are the shelves on the right.

Diamonds - Stripes - Flowers - Mirrors - Diamonds

Cheap craft supplies include the rocks that are meant for the bottom of fish bowls. This dresser will last a lot longer than any goldfish we've ever had.

Diamonds are a girl's best friend.
