Around the house: sibling work day

A few weekends ago, Jake and Jamie came in town just to help us make some progress on the house.

This is what you get when you mix two pregnant gals with some furniture re-makes

and a husband who has painted more than he ever dreamed he could paint  

and a brother who gets more paint on his shirt than the wall, but is an incredibly hard worker 

you get a lot of silliness
we love being together and really do love helping each other out....luck-i-leee

When we first moved into the house, I found lots of interesting things in the barn.
I have refinished quite a few and integrated them into our house

There was this one thingy that I was just dying to do something with, I just wasn't sure what it was
some kind of work bench/saw horse thing

Anywhoooo....Jamie helped me tackle it with a sander and I just love it!!!
i know. we're lovely

I now use it in our room to store our pillows and comforter when the bed isn't made


We also redid the Rast dressers from Ikea
a little stain, white paint and cute knobs from Hobby Lobby and 

love em!
guest room storage/side tables

I'm so thankful for awesome bro and sis in law that like to help a sista out.
and they're really good at it.

Next to come...the completed addition to our house!
It's decorated and it feels so good.

Happy weekend folks!
