Over the course of the year I have done quite a few projects that I didn't blog about, partially because they aren't significant enough on their own to have a full post and secondly because I just plain forgot. So here they are now, all compiled into one great post of randomness! Be warned...there is a lot of pictures coming your way!
Here I took some of my daughters old formula cans and stripped them down.
Then I covered them in scrapbook paper.
Next I printed up some labels and voila...new organization cans for the craft room.
Keeping with the craft room theme I will show you my desk makeover next. I was given this computer desk and hutch and it was the perfect fit for the craft room in our old place. It needed some work but I was up to the challenge.
Here it is after new paint and glaze.
My sister was getting rid of my nieces change table and asked if I wanted it, of COURSE I did!
With new paint and a fabric liner it made the perfect storage area for fabric and craft supplies.
Somewhere in my travels I came across this table and lamp...OK it wasn't the most "current piece" but it had potential!
After giving the shade a few ruffles and the base a new coat of paint the side table was ready to join the guest room in our new home...which we weren't in yet, I was planning ahead (OK really ahead, but I cant be the only one who gets excited about decorating a new house right?)
Here you can see it in the new guest room. Looking at this picture I now realize I need a little somethin' somethin' above the bed (do I hear another project coming on?)
I picked this great little bench up at a yard sale a few summers back. It sat around our fire pit (which we never used) as seating until I got a chance to work on it.
I gave it a few coats of red and I fell in LOVE! It now sits on our new front porch (I will get a recent picture of it this summer)
Last summer I found this great mirror and cork board and gave it a little bit of character.
I chose a great red-ish/maroon color and distressed the edges.
Then I stenciled on a great year...the year my late grandfather was born.
And last but not least this is a project I completed this week. I had this great antique shelf and decided to give it a face lift that would really bring out its antique charm.
I mixed up a custom paint color and gave it a fresh look.
I distressed the edges and it really came to life! I love this piece.
Thanks for dropping by today! I hope you enjoyed the post and weren't too overwhelmed with all the pictures!
