That is how I make my life a little more interesting. Cuz the rest of my life is pretty boring.
Well one exciting thing for our little family is that Mr. Genius has been saving his pennies for a while and finally bought the camera he has been drooling over for a while.
Yay! So no more pictures taken by my iPhone! Well at least the after pictures.
So I good news for you guys! Better pictures!
So lets get right to it. I got this dresser. Let me tell you. This dresser is HEAVY!! But it isn't wood...so sad. :( Just particle board.
Oh and these were taken with my phone, this is pre awesome camera purchase day.
And I also got these round french side tables.
For the dresser I used Wildflower blue spray paint. I long for the day when I can get a real paint sprayer. So until then I will use spray paint on some of my projects.
Here is the after with the awesome camera, but we did not take it inside due to the weight of it. I was not in the mood carrying this insanely heavy dresser inside just to take it right back out again.
I used the same white knobs that I used on the green dresser.
I love the simpleness of the knobs.
The doors each have a shelf inside for storage of bigger things.
Then for the french style round side tables.
I stained the top, painted the bottom white and then glazed it.
But what the picture doesn't show but you can completely see in person, is that inside the tables I painted them with the wildflower blue.
Just a little hint of a surprise.
I really like them. But alas there is no where to put them in my house.
There are available to anyone in the Chicago land area.
Now back to the fancy shmancy camera Mr. Genius got, let's compaire a picture that I took with my phone and what a picture looked like the real camera looks like. Cuz I know there are some people out there that can't tell a different...*cough*cough* mom *cough*cough*
Here is a picture taken with my phone.
Now this is the one taken by Mr. Genius.
Can see you how much clearer the picture is?
For a phone the iPhone takes incredible pictures, but I think that the canon camera is just amazing.
It is great to have a built in photographer in the family now!
He only requires payment in Dr. Pepper!
I am linking to these parties.
