For the Birds
 I like to look up phrases that people say, that I find myself repeating, things I have heard my parent's say, that really sound silly.  Last night as I was making supper I said "Holy Toledo!", and then wondered aloud why? What could that possibly mean?  Am I even saying it right? lol  "Mi mi always said that", Donovan told me.   Recently I've googled  Three sheets to the wind,  Redneck, and another phrase I was worried was racist.  I'm adding For the birds, and Holy Toledo to my list today, before I pass these on to my kids.

My Suburban Re-styling is going so well.  These are just a few pieces we have finished from through out this year.  I finally sold the black and gray dresser.  :).

 This transformation of Before to After, I think, is one of the best. I like to think that if Anthropologie and Restoration Hardware had a love child, it would be this dresser.   :)  I painted the base a medium gray, the drawers black and then used a rubber stencil/placemat that I purchased for exactly this.  I sprayed the white on and then super distressed the whole piece.  I changed out the top two knobs with new pewter ones, and painted the original chunky wooden ones on the rest.  A really cool young couple purchased it for their new apartment.
