Last Summer my husband cleared out a storage unit of his Fathers and he told me I could go through and pick stuff I wanted to keep, if anything. I had been dying to get my hands on a piece of furniture I could rehab! A dresser caught my eye… This dresser has been a part of my husbands family for many years, so I was thrilled to “bring it back to life”! I knew it would be perfect to rehab and add to Isabellas’ room! It was in pretty rough shape, so I started by sanding some of the rough scrapes and bumps and filling large grooves with wood filler.
I had so much fun sharing bits and pieces of Isabella’s second birthday party with you guys and now it’s time to share it entirely! We had a wonderful day celebrating with family and friends!
The color scheme was turquoise, pinks and neutral tones and the theme was shabby chic. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to make a party look great and well- thought out. I get a lot of my stuff from Michaels dollar bins, dollar stores, Target dollar corner, etc. Once you’ve chosen your theme and colors, you’d be surprised how great things start coming together 🙂

Part of the excitement for me when planning my little ones birthday parties, is picking a fun, customized outfit for their special day! This year to go hand-in-hand with Isabellas vintage chic rag banner (here) I created an adorable tutu using the same technique!
My husband got me this nifty tool to easily created snaps and buttons! I (he) decided to give it a try and it worked out perfect for this project. It’s easily hidden by simply sliding a piece of fabric directly over it!
3. I’m crazy about shabby chic worn furniture right now, and this piece is just perfect! The robin egg blue really makes this piece stand out, what do you think?!
4. How adorable is this shabby chic style laundry room! If my husband would let me decorate super girly, I would have a room decorated with the pinks, blues and floral prints!
