My New Favorite Store

So all you decorating bloggers out there...are you jealous by this picture? Seriously I could not get over there fast enough. I have found the best deals around...are you ready for some before and afters? Here is goes...I don't have a linen closet in my new house...I know weird so I had to find something. I knew when I saw this buffet table it was PERFECT!! However, it was really really ugly. It was painted an off white with green blotches. I re-painted it a dusty blue and distressed it. It is now just perfect. The best part is it was only $8.99!
Before:
After:

My girls were is desperate need for a dresser since they were sharing three drawers. I found this beauty...$15. Yep you heard me right only $15! I just sanded it with my new electric sander and primed and painted! That was it. In a matter of hours it was beautiful.
