My little beach memory

So I know it's been a whole month since I've blogged but don't worry, I've had a project that I've been working on. I'm so excited to finally have this piece of furniture finished.  Literally every single year of my 22 year old life my family and I have vacationed at my papaw Charlie's beach house in Daytona Beach.  Ever since I can remember  there has been a white dresser in the beach house garage. Each year Dad would always go to the garage and pull out the beach chairs and sand castle tools stored in there.  I would always see this little white dresser sitting in the back. You know those little things you just remember from being little that just enchanted you? Well this dresser caught my eye and I fell in love with it. 

On January 5th 2009 my Papaw went home to be with the Lord. Our whole family misses him very much but I personally treasure the many moments spent with him.

I am so thankful to finally have this little dresser in my home because it brings back such sweet memories of being with Papaw.  

Mom and Dad helped me bring it home this summer.

It was in pretty rough condition when my parents brought it here...

After scrubbing and scrubbing, sanding, scrubbing more then sanding again and painting, 
I have a piece of furniture I am so proud of! 

It's so perfect for reading my bible in the morning, writing letters or just playing on the computer. 
I just pull over the piano bench as a seat. It's so special to have in my home. :)
