joy to the world

Hello there! It is snowing and beautiful outside, so it completely put me in the mood to put on some Nat King Cole and add some holiday cheer around here.

Do you recognize the dresser?dresser

I shared it on Instagram, but I was taking my daughter to basketball practice early one Saturday morning this past fall and drove past a yard sale. Of course the brakes go on, my kids yell “noooooooo, Mom!”  I was a good mom and took her to practice, but I drove right back and look what I found for $15!!

I just painted it white and kept the same hardware. The best thing about this dresser? There are slots at the top of each drawer where you can put a sheet of paper in to change the color behind the quatrefoil design. I’m trying to figure out what color would be best…suggestions??
The poinsettias were .99 at Home Depot on Black Friday and the cedar garland was $5, (also shared on Instagram)99 cent poinsettias

These lights are my favorite – they were a favorite yard sale find back when we lived in Texas.cedar garland and lights

The red sweater star was a Target after Christmas find last year. It got a little bent during the move, but it was a happy surprise to pull out of the box:chalkboard

I love what a $15 dresser + white paint + some $5 greenery + a few .99 poinsettias can do to cheer up a space~
