A New Table for the Princess Palace

I mentioned to my husband that my daughter needed a nightstand and maybe we should buy one. At this point, I don't know if I say these things to get a rise out of him or purely for my own amusement. "Buy one?!?" he sputters, "what do you want? I can make it by noon. Buy one! Ha!" So I showed him a picture of what I wanted and voila, by evening it was ready for paint and accessories (that's 8 yards of tulle thank you very much--you can never have enough tulle!)

We put it in Peyton's room while she was sleeping and she came in this morning and said, "Have you seen my table?" (Uh, yeah, we made it.) "I LOVE it!" She was thrilled.

So there really are some benefits to having a garage full of, not cars, but loud, messy, scary woodworking machinery. :)

It turned out adorable! I do so wish I have the imagination for that sort of thing. I will so have to keep this nightstand in mind if I have a daughter.
