Piece of Work Wednesday Furniture Link Party Number 48!

I am just going to start this party by saying, it's my party and I'll cry if I want to.  Today has just been a down day for me- I am overwhelmed, stressed out, packing, the house is a mess.  Oh, and I am planning Sawyer's birthday party for Friday.  And Heather was supposed to find out today if there was a match for Cora, but when she got there she was told she had to wait two more days.  So keep on praying as hard as you can.  And today happens to be my 33rd birthday, and I was really wishing that there would be a match and we would know today.  I know that prayers are always answered, just not always when we want them to be.

Enough of my pity party though, and let's get to the furniture party.  That's way more fun! And did you really think I would leave you high and dry with no projects?  I keep some up my sleeves for the moments when I can't work so I won't totally leave you hanging!  I helped Sarah find a dresser a while back for her nursery.  We had searched high and low, and finally I found this one at the Salvation Army.
 She had wanted something simple and cottagey, and this one fit the bill, and was the right size to serve as a changing table.  We coordinated via email so she sent me a picture of the rug and let me choose the blue, telling me she trusted me completely.  (No pressure, right?)  I chose Spectra Blue from Benjamin Moore.  Sarah was amazed at how well the color coordinated with the rug!  I was pretty happy with the result, too!  Here it is in place in the nursery.

So what have you been working on?  I need some bright happy and inspirational projects today people- cheer me up!!!!  But please follow the rules; you don't want to cross me today, either! ;)

First, Happy Birthday!! Second, I hope your day gets better before it's not your day anymore.

I actually had something to link up so I'm pretty excited about that. I love your party, but never have furniture to share.

I love the blue dresser against the green walls. I was thinking about doing my nursery walls in light blue and then repainting Han's old dresser in a green-green. So like what you showed, but in reverse. :-)

Oh Cassie! I read the good news first about Cora. I am overjoyed. What a heartache for that family to have to deal with - but I am so happy to hear the good news. And Happy Birthday to you!!! Moving is for the birds huh! It should be fun and exciting but it is quite stressful - like really stressful. Hang in there friend!

Sorry to hear about your blah kind of day. Here's for a better day tomorrow! :)

As for the dresser. Love it AND that looks almost exactly like the shade of blue I painted my nightstand for my son's room!

The dresser is really adorable. Nice to see bright colors in a nursery.

What a sweet dresser in a pretty color - perfect color match! Isn't it fun to know that your piece will be in a nursey for a brand new little baby!
