philly cupcake.

yay for cupcakes from philly cupcake!! i have been dying to get to this place to try them out and they did not let me down!! it is the cutest little dessert boutique, with an amazing crystal chandelier, ornate, victorian, pink china cabinets to showcase their sweet treats. and yes, they are as delish as they look. pictured above from left to right (clock-wise): jewish apple streusel cake cupcake, chocolate chip with black and white frosting, cinnamon swirl coffee cupcake, the coma (the all chocolate one, that was mine). so.good.

before + after.

my mom and i are currently in the process of re-finishing my bedroom set to match the new bed pat and i purchased a few months ago. we already had a night stand and armoire and purchased a fabulous dresser from the holy redeemer thrift store in warminster for $45! i am documenting the entire process from start to finish...

day one. sanding + priming.

the new dresser from the thrift store.

day two. painting + searching for hardware.

first coat!

after two coats of paint, hopefully we only need one more!

we couldn't find hardware to fit the existing holes, so we needed to fill them up to drill some new ones. more to come....
