Glamorous & Easy Nightstand Makeover for Maya's Nursery

One of the funnest parts of having a new baby on the way is planning a theme for the nursery. It's something you put lots of thought into as you want it to be absolutely perfect for your new little one. From the organizing to selecting your crib and colors, it can be a bit overwhelming. We have many wonderful ideas to share with you in making the process easier. We hope that you will enjoy some of the homemade projects we made to make Maya's nursery special including her glamorous new nightstand.

After many moves, this is the only heirloom piece I have left from a bedroom collection my wonderful MawMaw passed down to me. I decided that it would make a special addition to sweet Maya's nursery, but that it definitely needed a makeover. The nightstand was structurally sound, it just needed cosmetic repair. If you don't have a nightstand to pass down, check your local Goodwill, Thrift Stores and Yard Sales for one. Ignore the existing knob and paint, as you will be making this piece your very own.

Welcome Maya AriElle | NICU Fanatic

Dear Sweet Pinterest Fanatics,
We are overjoyed to announce the newest member of the Pinterest Fanatic Family, "Maya AriElle." When we announced we were growing, we never anticipated the complications that would follow, how scary it would be and how blessed we would become. As much as we love bringing you fun recipes, Pinterest projects and awesome new products, we found ourselves as NICU Fanatics. Precious Maya made her entrance into the world via emergency cesarean section at 29 weeks gestation. Our only glimpse at this little 2 lb 9oz fierce fighter would be from the chin down and we were so in love.

Maya amazed us everyday with her strength earning the nickname "Feisty" from all the nurses. We prayed for her so much and felt so blessed with every victory she made. We gained a new perspective for what Mother's go through when their babies are born early and how amazing it feels to see that graduation certificate from the NICU.
