We’re knocking out some projects around the home in order to prepare for the arrival of Joseph “Tucker”. One of the things I’ve been excited about for a while now is to paint his dresser a really fun/bright color.

I gave you a sneak peek at a massive table that I built for some friends of ours and now I’d like to show-off the finished product set-up in the room. This is definitely a “Thanksgiving meal” type of table because there is a ton of room in the middle of the table to lay out an entire spread of…

We saw some really cool ones at Anthropologie but I thought that they looked simple enough to make myself….especially a letter “T.” So, I went to…
