After searching antique stores and scrolling through for sale groups on Facebook, I finally found this beautiful piece at Peddlers Mall in Murray, Ky.

This is the only picture I have of the process during the refurbishing.

Tips:

1. Make sure to wash the piece you buy. I used warm soap and water and scrubbed down the entire cabinet.

2. Remove all hardware.

3. You can buy little sponge brushes at Lowes that come with a blue pan for the paint. They are less than $3 I believe.

This is after paint without the hardware attached. I decided to paint the inside a different color than the outside. Since I knew what china pieces I wanted for our wedding china the white plates would pop against the light blue inside.

I LOVE how it turned out!

A Little Pumpkin {Blake Matthew}

My family is expecting yet again a wonderful blessing from HEAVEN. My sister Keisha and her husband are having a little boy in January. As a sister should I was all about planning a baby shower for her first child. My goal was for her to feel special and loved on this day. Special thanks to Morgan, Cambria, and Denise for helping with the shower.

My sister Keisha is expecting her first child in January 2015. I planned a gender reveal for her and her husband. The original plan for the reveal was Matt (Keisha’s husband) and Keisha were not supposed to find out before the reveal but they couldn’t wait so they were the only ones who knew before the gender reveal.

I wanted to share these photos I took from the reveal with y’all!

Guess who PINK or BLUE??

The cheesecake bites are from Sams they come  frozen in a pack of  64. I highly recommend them to anyone planning a event.

I am so lucky to have Mr. B’s mom to help me with events that I plan. She loves to craft and is very good at it she made these owl treat bags.

I made these using materials from Hobby Lobby. It’s very easy and simple.

So…I  didn’t look the best at the reveal but I was so busy getting things together that I didn’t care what I looked like.
