Home Improvement Mama

I had some people ask what I am spray painting in the pictures from this post. I am desperate for a matching bedroom set...I'm a little I found this project idea on this blog.
It's a DYI Draper Chest
$29 at IKEA!!!!
Finished product
 So I'm planning on Craigslisting my current dresser (for cheap !!! let me know if you want to look at it) and replacing it with 2 of these. Then I'm going to sand and paint Jake's dresser and our nightstand to match mine. And I've priced it out and I can do all of our furniture for less than $150. That's including the cost of buying the 2 from IKEA. (Happy dance! :) ) I've been finding all these ideas I want to do for our room and I'm going to toot my own horn here, but I can do almost all of them on my own for a fraction of the cost of buying the stuff new. !!!

P.S. Does anyone know of a place that does custom stencil patterns for relatively cheap? That's one thing I'm not super comfortable having be a DYI.

P.P.S I'll keep posting what project I'm working on as I go. :)
