Hello friends! I am a bit behind on sharing a few recent projects that have to do with our bedroom makeover. One of which, I was pretty excited about. This pair of mismatched nightstands. I found the white one on the side of the road (trash night), therefore it was *FREE*. It was in rough condition but the shape was so pretty. It just needed some love! I found the wood one, of similar size and style, at the flea market last summer for three dollars. $3!
They both sat, untouched for over a year until I decided I would make them pretty and use them in our bedroom. They definitely needed some sanding, new paint and a pop of color.
At first, I tried bold blue, but it just wasn't right. I kept seeing beautiful coral night stands on Pinterest and that's was I wanted to incorporate into our bedroom color palette.
I landed on "Coral Bell" as the winning color. I really like it! Painting them the same color definitely makes them look "less different" and more harmonious. Such a stunning transformation. I'm not afraid of color, as you know from my yellow china cabinet.
Stay tuned for more projects from my bedroom makeover and the big reveal. It's about 95% done.

Andrew and I are absolutely overjoyed to share the news that we are having a BABY!!!
Our little one is due around February 2, 2015 and we cannot wait to meet him or her! We hope to find out the gender next month. Everything still seems so surreal and wonderful and amazing all at the same time.
We are in awe of our Great God, the Creator and Giver of life. It's so incredible to see our tiny baby during ultrasounds. I just stare at the pictures. And it's the most glorious sound in the world to hear his/her tiny heart beating. It is the sweetest sound! We are so thankful for this growing miracle and for what God is doing.
We are also so blessed by the outpouring of love, support and excitement from our friends and family. Thank you for your prayers, kind words and for sharing in our joy!
There will certainly be more to come. I just wanted to share our big wonderful announcement!

I had the privilege of designing a classy and elegant wedding invitation set for a very sweet couple, Kassidy and Nick, who are part of a family that is near and dear to my heart. I grew up with Kassidy's older sister's, Kara and Kailey, and actually remember Kassidy as a cute little toddler! I was thrilled when they asked me to design their wedding invitation set and table numbers. I used two of my favorite fonts and kept it simple (plus there was a lot of information to include). The bride wanted it to be "classy and nice" but without a lot of frills. Simple elegance.
What a gorgeous bride! The photos of their wedding are beautiful, taken by my talented photographer friend, Rachel. To see more of their wedding photos and view Rachel's amazing work, visit rachelannphotography.com or click here.
The wedding looked so romantic with pink and gold, pearls and lace, candy, sweets and personalized elements. What's even more evident is the love that Nick and Kassidy have for the Lord and for each other.
Congratulations you two! May God richly bless your new life together as a married couple! I'm blessed contribute this piece of your special day.
