So its been a while since my last post and I apologize for being M.I.A! I have been on a mission to complete the remodel of the home we purchased about 18 months ago and life keeps getting in the way, if I could only figure out a way to not have to sleep! I would have so much more time! I have been dabbling with doing some interior design work as a side gig and I have been swamped with other people’s homes and haven’t been able to complete my daily tasks–much less blog! I have decided to share some of the inexpensive updates I have been doing around my house as well as homes around my neighborhood as a way of multi-tasking. I have really enjoyed the learning process and the help of the many awesome blogs out there so I hope you enjoy seeing what I have done.
Of course the only way I can get through tedious task such as hand painting furniture is to be fueled by something sweet and loaded with sugar! My daughter and I made these yummy Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies that did just the trick! These tasty treats are super soft due to the added pudding and stay soft for a long time. There is nothing worse than a cookie that gets hard 20 minutes after you get it out of the oven. These still taste fresh baked days later, perfect recipe for neighborhood treats!
For the dresser I painted the entire dresser with Kilz primer then painted two coats of a custom pink I made by mixing several shades I liked. No sanding and no filling dents! I used a Purdy 2 1/2 inch angled brush, my fav! Normally I would have used the kilz spray paint to save time but it was too heavy to move to the garage! It was completely done in less than two hours!
