baby room projects; dresser & wreath

I realize now I've only got about 4 weeks left before this baby is coming and we've still got a lot to do! This is the first time we've actually decorated a nursery for a baby so I'm pretty excited to see it all come together...eventually.
First I knew we would need a dresser as the closet is tiny...and we're having a girl...girls need BIG closets! ;)
So, I sold a couple things on craigslist and it covered the cost of buying a dresser that I found on craigslist. I took the knobs off and sanded it...

Then painted it white and added new, "crystal" knobs, which I LOVE! I also painted to changing table white to match and I'm working on the crib!

 I saw this cute idea on pinterest (of course) on making a tutu wreath...being the crafty person that I am (yeah right) I decided that it looked simple enough for even me to try!
The colors in the room are black/white and lavender - a HUGE thanks to a cousin and friend, Kyle, for coming over and getting the room painted for us! It probably wouldn't have gotten done and she'd be stuck in bright orange room!
 I like how it turned out and want to add just a couple embellishments, but so cheap (about $3-$4) and easy for a little girl's room!
We've still got a lot to do to finish the room, and a few more projects in the works!

Looks Great Erin. What's wrong with an Orange room? Just kidding! These wall will be much more soothing for little Temperance!
