File Cabinet Makeover

Hello Loves! 
Just wanted to share our little at home project we 
did of giving this file cabinet a complete makeover.

 Before moving to Florida we sold 
pretty much all of our furniture. 
The only stuff we kept was our bed, dresser set,
dining room table, my great grandmothers china cabinet 
and another smaller cabinet Matt bought me as a gift.

We profited around $850 at our yard sale
and kept that money to then replace the furniture
once we got to our new home in Florida. 

So be prepared for lots of repurpose blogs. ;) 

If there is one thing I love the most about our new
home is the garage and no need to actually use it for vehicles.

Talk about a whole place to store and complete my projects.
Complete repurpose junkie over here! 

So let's get this show on the road. 

We picked up this tad rusty but very potential file cabinet
at a local ReStore by Habit for Humanity. 
$20 SCORE!

We started by removing all the hardware and 
using a Strip Disc attachment for cordless drill
to remove all the chipped paint and raised rust spots.

After that we washed it off with paint thinner 
and waited for it to dry. 

Then sprayed it with Appliance Epoxy in Black
all of these spray paints can be found at Walmart.

We ended up doing two coats of the black.
Three coats of the watermelon color on the hardware
and one coat of the lacquer over everything. 

Nothing too fancy pantsy just enough to make it look brand new! 

Hope you enjoyed this little transformation and would love
to see some of your very own repurpose projects!
Thank you for reading.

Confessions of a Hair Color-a-Holic

When sitting and deeply thinking about something harmful that I am addicted to it took awhile for me to come to terms with the ONE and only addiction that I have. 
Coloring & Bleaching my hair.
I have never:  smoked tried any drugs rarely drank alcohol chewed tobacco eat lots of junk food or even drank caffeinated drinks.
I am fairly borderline boring besides the fact that  I am ADDICTED TO CHANGING MY HAIR. Here is my story and eye opener:
I started coloring my hair when I was 15 year old.  For the longest time I was a tom boy and had naturally long dirty blond hair.  The first color I ever did was burgundy underneath and low lights up top. After that it was a spiral of different colors. 
Strawberry blonde, dark brown, blonde with red low lights, platinum blonde, chestnut brown it never ended. Along with all the colors I also had issues with ever growing my hair out again  because I was constantly ruining my hair with chemicals.
I started wearing my first set of clip in extensions when I wa…

Chicken Pox after Vaccine

The run around due to Breakthrough Varicella
On October 30th 2014 my son got his Chickenpox Vaccine. 

November 24th  I noticed a few bumps on his stomach when he woke up and called his pediatrician for an appointment right away. The doctor said that they were bug bites.  When I asked about the chicken pox vaccine she assured me that the rash had nothing to do with the vaccine. I picked up calamine lotion and carpet insect killer.  Went home and stripped his bedding, bleached his crib rails and mattress,  sprayed his carpet with the insect killer and even got rid of our dog. The bumps dried up but as soon as they did...
December 2nd Brayden was once covered in bumps.  They were mostly on his back/neck and stomach. I freaked out thinking that it was a bug again even though he sleeps in footie pjs. Once again I sprayed the carpets, stripped his bedding and bleached his mattress. I searched HIGH and LOW looking for any bug(s) or even a spider web. The bumps dried up and went away but not for long. 
By Dec…

An honest blog about Honest Diapers ❤ PART ONE

Before I get into the benefits of Honest Diapers I wanted to first share my story on the struggles I dealt with that lead me to Honest. 
My first born, Brayden, always struggled with diaper rash from name brand diapers.  When he was first born we used Huggies.  I noticed that I would have to CAKE on ointment just to keep the rash away when he didn't even had diarrhea or a soiled diaper. 
We then switched to LUVS. Within a week his rash was even worse and peeling.  I once again headed to the store to look and buy new diapers.
All these store named diapers that you always hear and every box is saying how amazing their brand is but even Pampers didn't help his poor butt. I was spending tons of money on diapers and diaper rash cream too! 
I then switched to Huggies Naturals. He still got a rash and our problems were far from gone.  Brayden came down with a virus that consisted of unending diarrhea.  Mixing diarrhea with an already sore bottom was not a good mix.  I took my poor b…
