Getting Cozy In The Bedroom

When fall comes around I love getting into a cozy bed!  I am dying to cozy up the bedroom for fall and give it the makeover it deserves. Stay tuned next month!

Here are some inspiration pics from one of my FAVOURITE design firms and blogs, Studio McGee.

Amazon + Me

Amazon and I have had a love relationship for quite some time. Most of you know my day job is teaching kindergarten and a huge part of that job is to read stories! I LOVE books and Amazon is my go-to for books for my classroom and also for just me. Lately, I have been turning to Amazon first before any other online retailer. We have bought a rowing machine, espresso machine filters, Christmas gifts, bike parts, and the list goes on. My husband has Amazon Prime, so things are on our doorstep within 48 hours of hitting purchase! As a Canadian, I LOVE Amazon Canada because their prices are in Canadian funds, shipping can be free AND no duty. Woot! Woot!

I am partnering with for the rest of 2017 and have signed up with the Amazon Associates Program, I can't wait to share with you all my awesome finds on Amazon in the next few months.

My latest purchase was Delonghi Water Filter-Good for EC860 and All ECAM Fully Automatic Coffee Machines, and in our house that is a lifesaver because my day begins with a strong cup of joe!

And since I am a sucker for children's book (life of a kindergarten teacher), I have purchased these lovelies...

This one is hilarious!

And on my wish list is this lovely fluffy kind duvet for our new bed! 

Stay tuned for my favourite finds and purchases!

Chalk Painted Dresser

Painting furniture is therapy for me. I love seeing a piece and having a vision of what the finished piece will look after I paint it. When I spotted this dresser on an Facebook sale group, I knew I had to have it. What's another dresser in the house full of furniture? Rustoleum sent me Chalked Ultra Matte paint to try and this piece was the perfect piece! If you remember (that is if ANYONE still reads my sad and neglected blog) would recall that I used  Rustoleum's Chalk Ultra Matte spray paint on the vintage dining chairs I made over for the One Room Challenge. Of course I didn't get that room 100% complete as the dining room table gave me great heartache. That's another story.

Having used chalk paint before with a different brand, I wanted to use Rustoleum's Chalked Ultra Matte paint to compare. I used Rustoleum's Chalked Ultra Matte paint in charcoal, which is a deep gray colour. It went on beautifully and really only needed one coat. The coverage is fantastic!

One coat!

 I chose not to sand and then used Rustoleum's Chalked protective top coat to seal the paint. The only issue I had was with the top coat paint, it wiped off some of the chalk paint which ended up tinting the clear coat in the can. So I can't use the top coat for light paint projects in the future. What I loved was how quickly it dried, which was perfect for impatient me. Using Rustoleum metallic spray paint in gold, I also spruced up the handles. 

What I DON'T have is a before photo - bad blogger.

Really love how this dresser turned out. 

 Sexy legs.

This pretty baby is for sale. Lucky buyer is getting a solid well constructed piece and with a sexy brand new look. Any local takers?
