After (Not distressed yet and missing glass hardware):
My $5 nightstand - it used to be one side of a 20's or 30's vanity, dovetailed and everthing!
The old black washstand (our first purchase ever that is totally non-functional now) painted 'Penelope Pink', and an old Eastlake chair we bought at Aberfoyle that's in the middle of receiving a black and white toile seat cushion in place of the digustingness that used to be there. Let's not even talk about it. Seriously. So ignore the hanging fabric under the chair, it was a test run ;)
And lastly that $20 dresser from the cancer fundraiser that we made over, sitting happily in our bedroom. My only qualm with the dresser is the drawers weigh a TON. I have a hard time sliding the drawers shut they weigh so much! Oy!
Eggwin, the peach faced lovebird. Who just happens to be defect and missing two toes on one foot and there for was a great deal ;) He's so fun! He knows up to 'step up' on your finger, sit on your shoulder, and is totally not noisey at all unless we've hung him outside to catch some air and he sees the birds at the birdfeeder :) I was afraid since he was parent fed and raised that we were in for a nasty bird and long months of training before we could handle him, but that's not the case at all! He never nips and is so, so sweet! The LPs love him to death, I had no idea a child could enjoy a bird so much. The cats aren't thrilled, but atleast they've completely ignored him, aside from looking at him once in a while if he's tweeting (?). Best of all he probably wont learn to talk, so I wont have to lock him in the closet when company comes for fear of him repeating four letter explivies that he may, or may not have heard around the house.
