Coralee's Baby Scrapbook

Dante's Baby Scrapbook

It's become tradition that when my friends have babies, I make a scrapbook.

The Baby Scrapbook shower gift has evolved over time. In the beginning and up until recently my mom and I left slots for pictures in the pages. Now we leave the center blank so it is easier to choose which pictures they want to put in.

I apologize for the low quality photos. I hadn't planned on posting, but thought they might be helpful to others :)

The Desk all Painted Up

My mom sent over this desk/dresser since she was making room for a new piece of furniture.

It started off as a yellowy wood color, but after sanding it and painting it with Antique White it looks entirely different! I wanted to change the hardware, but the handles are too odd of a size to buy replacements at Lowe's.



And in our bedroom:


I painted it the same blue as our wall inside. I used mod podge as a glaze to protect the paint since my laptop will be residing in here. I'm sure that something like polyurthane would be a better choice, but I just used what I had on hand.
