We all deserve a second chance!

Today, I gave a second (or 3rd or 4th or 5th) chance to a cheapo vintage nightstand that I purchased a few years ago. There were water stains and kitty damage on the top and was in great need of a little makeover.

After I read this simple tutorial, I picked up a can of white spray paint and a lace curtain at the second hand store. In less than 30 minutes, I had a "new" nightstand! Now, how can I stop the cat from clawing the wood (damn destructive kitty...but I still love him anyway)?

erstwhiledear: It is such pretty cool article!

sara-ananda: You should not feel guilty! I know a bit about your situation and it totally makes sense that you need some time alone to finish your project. You know what is best for you and baby A. And you are doing such a wonderful job. It went well for Alice. We just had a little milk problem. She was so excited when we got there that she didn't want to drink. When I came back after 2 hours, poor little bird was grumpy. Oh, talking about time to do stuff, we should have coffee soon.

bec hem: It went very well. It was a nice place with very professional people. I felt safe for Alice (and for me)!

lola: Good point! I didn't realize that people could not pronounce my blog's title. It goes a bit like that :
aux - letter
O
pe -
pe(dicure)
ti - letter
T
oi -

taryn: I'm exactly in the same situation. I will write an "Ignorant Claudia" post about solid food this week.

luke and pamela: I was so happy to read that article. I had to share it asap :)

SEO Services UK: Thank you so much!

Yes, let's talk about solid food! Juno is just a couple weeks younger than Alice and I've been thinking a lot about it. She's definitely showing interest when we eat, and I let her lick my apple, which she loved. :) Not sure how to start. I'm attracted to baby led weaning but it's so messy, and I wouldn't mind doing some purees for a little while. There's something about feeding a baby with a little spoon that I'd like to try...Also, definitely couldn't pronounce your blog's name until you explained it. :)

Love the nightstand - very doily like :)! We should have a get together...and make it a thrifty expedition with the lovely Alice while my two are at school.
