Baby is the size of a cauliflower...holyyy! She weighs 2 lbs.

So I'm a crazy organized person anyway, and now I'm apparently "nesting"... so this is what I've come up with for a nursery plan in our new home.

Since I have a lot more free time on the weekends now that I'm not spending my days too hungover to move, I wanted to do a small project and refurnish a toy chest that my mom bought me.  

First I sanded off the original finish.
Then I primed the chest and sanded it again.
 Then I painted it and painted it again.

 Then I personalized the inside with a little note.

...But of course, I had to edit out baby girls name... just for suspense!
