Cabin dresser and mirror

So this summer hasn't been very productive for me and my cabin project...but a few weeks ago we did take a dresser and mirror up there and painted them.When I say "we" that's not me and my's me and my running partner Camille. Heber doesn't paint. In between coats of paint we headed to the local thrift store in Heber City. I think it's call St. Lawrence Thrift Store.

I got a long upholstered bench that I am going to slipcover for the entry at the cabin ($10), so the kids can sit down and put their shoes on. Camille scored a free chair and head board (they had a free pile out back). Then she got an awesome coffee table for $5.

My mom was going to give the dresser and mirror to DI, but I told her I could use I decided to use the paint from the kitchen cabinets for the dresser, since I had some left.

Work in progress on the dresser. I am really bad at taking before pics sometimes. But it was the dated oak looking dresser.
The dresser all put back together in the was the perfect size for my nook.

Close up of the dresser. I decided to keep the hardware.

Before picture of the mirror. I loved the shape and I only want a few big things on the walls...I don't want alot of knick knacky cluttery things.

After.. I painted the mirror a mustard yellow color that matched the club chairs.

We took a little playhouse up and leveled some of the ground out back. My boys still want to build a log fort though.

The cabin is looking so good Shelley! You have done so much hard work. The floors are awesome and the windows totally 'open' the rooms.
Not to mention those oooo la la slips!
Can't wait to see the fruit of your labors!
