I am Loving Red

I know I know I have slacked off something horrible.  With summer break coming to an end I am hoping to be more on track with my blogging.  Tomorrow is the first day back for my not so little man as he enters into the big Grade 2.  I am pretty sure I am more excited than him, I figured once we dropped off his school supplies today he would be a little more excited but not so much. 

Last year I had seen on another blog a credenza and I told my husband I must have one of those.  I searched Kijiji and found this fantastic credenza for $50.00.  My husband thought it was so ugly and way to heavy but he brought it home anyway.

It has sat in my basement for a little while waiting to be love and finally it got its face lift. 

Picking the color was the hard part, first I painted it a white but it just didn't do it justice.  Once I started working on the rest of the room and changing wall colors there was no question that red was the perfect choice.  There are some nice chrome pieces on the bottom of the credenza so I picked up these handles to match.  Next thing is to accessorize the top, which of course is my favorite part. 

Hope you enjoy and are all having a fantastic week.
