My New Dressers!

A few months ago I bought a 2 dressers and a matching vanity from one of my favorite stores, They were in great condition, didn't even need much sanding. Well they were going to the shop asap! Didn't happen, we had one of those torrential rains we've been having lately and the garage flooded. Since we didn't go in there to work we didn't see the water for a few days. Needless to say the dressers got ruined. The veneer buckled on the front drawers of both of the but not the vanity. Long story short: I've been wanting antique dressers for quite awhile but all the good stuff goes to the shop. Not these they were meant to be mine! Here are the before pictures.
After pictures. I've been wanting to "lighten up" my house and style to cottage from primitive and dark colors. I'm so happy with the new {old} dressers!

New Carport....

I've been so busy working in the back yard trying to get the new carport and paint area set up I've hardly had time to paint! We've put a ceiling in the garage, a new vintage wood stove and lots more. I've been really bad at taking pictures, before or after. Anyway we can now keep cozy warm and paint in the garage for the winter. This is when we first got the carport.
This is now! Yeah its full already. We pulled all the project pieces from the garage and put them here and the plan is to take them out one or two at a time to sand and paint. Pictures of the new stove and my new vintage bedroom furniture coming soon!
