Furniture Makeover the works!

In light of (many) recent events, I have had some huge changes go down in my life over the past few months. In the midst of this, I have randomly found a new hobby in bargain furniture hunting..with the intention to experiment and redo these suckers for a (one day) guest room. Or who knows- I may get so attached that it will become my primary furniture! Anywho, I have NO idea what a sander is.. and what primer means, so, this little adventure I'm about to partake in is going to be quite interesting to say the least.

Here's a picture of the 3 pieces I've found thus far::

:I'm starting with this little gem first because it's small, and not so intimidating.:
Craigslist- $5

:Then we'll tackle this dresser. The bottom left corner needs some minor repair, but I still think it has potential!:
Craigslist- FREE.

(after i brought it home)

:And third, we have this. My first splurge..and what made me decide I needed to partake in this furniture redoing in the first place. I just love this piece. It's a Jamison..and I scored it on 
Craigslist for $45! 

 Contemplating between cream white and black. Thoughts?

Going to buy everything tomorrow.. ANY advice or tips are welcome! I have NO idea what I'm doing here! ;)

I love Glenn Beck.

"Remember, beneath every cynic there lies a romantic, and probably an injured one."

"I've come to the place where I believe that there's no way to solve these problems, these issues."

"What does it mean to be a conservative? I don't even know anymore. I know what it means to me. It means to me, personal responsibility. That if I've done something wrong, its up to me to pay the price. It's up to me to make it right."

Brittany gets hitched!

Hey blogger! Well, my week was pretty decent overall. I got some great news from the company I'm currently in the 'running' for with the hiring process, so please cross your fingers that the rest of it goes well. 

Also, Friday one of my close friends from college tied the knot! They had a beautiful wedding in downtown Orlando at The Mezz/The Abbey. She looked stunning and everyone had a BLAST. It was great to see everyone from college all in the same place again to celebrate such an awesome event! 

I unfortunately was too busy dancing, boozing, and laughing to take many photos. But here are just a few I snapped from my phone:

(The ceremony)

(On the building marquee)

(We like to party.)

(Every centerpiece was different. It was gorg!)

(First dance)

(Cake shooters to-go. Best wedding favor ever.)

My photos do not at all do this beautiful wedding justice. I'll try to post some more once other pictures are uploaded. 

In other news, my Jack Skellington pumpkin bit the dust a few days ago. He's been looking a little frail lately, but I waited until I absolutely had to before we tossed him. :(

(As you can see..pretty deformed and droopy.)
RIP Jack.

Hope everyone else had a great weekend!

Manicure challenge- Week 3

Week 3- Your favorite polish

If you know me, you most likely know the answer to this one! Of my 250 bottles of polish, China Glaze- For Audrey wins this prize.

Although this may be surprising to some, since I'm such a pink girl. But I just adore this color for so many reasons. I love Tiffany blue, as every woman does. I love Audrey Hepburn- and Breakfast at Tiffany's is also my favorite movie of all time. And this polish is just so easy for me to throw on. I refer to it as my 'comfort polish.' 

Here's For Audrey with some stampage and Hello Kitty in the mix :)

What do you think?
