Weekend Warrior Project - Dresser Makeover, Guest post by Shanda Neighbors

This weekend due to the weather and the time change, I was in do everything mode.   We bought a house a just over a year ago. It was a foreclosure and the task of making it home on  a tiny budget was frankly, overwhelming. For the longest time I did nothing... but complain.
