after, before and after

I decided to redo this cabinet and mirror. I found them at an estate sale for $35. I thought about sanding down the whole thing and doing a watered down blue stain but after starting to sand realized there was only a layer of wood then laminate underneath. Plus the detail work would have been a royal pain to sand. So instead, I spray painted it. My camera doesn't do well with indoor lighting so you can't see the edges where I antiqued it. I think it turned out pretty good. I don't like having it right next to a different white (the door) but since we won't live in this rental forever I'm not too worried.

Here it is before...

and after.
Eventually I want to find a little sign about heading to the beach or something. Those are shells in those glass vases.

Disneyland in January

We went to Disneyland with the Owens in January. They flew down to see us and spend a vacation in California. The weather was so nice. Best weather for Disneyland we've had so far this year and it was in Jan.

Everyone was getting tired of walking by this point.

All of us on the Pirate's ride. Well, almost all...

We realized we needed to rearrange a few things if we wanted the stroller to stay upright even with Maya in it. Does this mean we brought too much to carry or that Maya needs to gain a few pounds. Both, I'm sure.
