The little things // Family treasures

This week we have spent all our extra free time sprucing up some old family treasures, taking them from drab to fab :)  My honey's to do list consisted of sanding and painting: a little play table that was my grandfathers as a kid, a play kitchen set that was mine as a child at my grandparents house and finally a vanity table that was my moms as a child, then mine and now to be Brynns.

It was a lot of work but today they finally all got a fresh coat of white paint and were put in there new homes the play room and Brynn's room.  Seeing them all revamped and come back to life as good as new made me so happy!

As Steve was putting the finishing touches on the little play kitchen and Brynn was standing next to him watching so carefully and spinning the little knobs on the mama heart couldn't help but skip a beat.  It just made me so happy to see something that brought me so much joy be passed down to my daughter.  I couldn't help but picture her a little older "playing house" in there just as I did as a little girl or pretending to put on her play makeup at the same vanity where my mom and I once did the exact same thing.

I'm also incredibly thankful for a husband that understands and appreciates sentiment as much as I do, and was happy to bring this dream to life for me.
