I realized that I haven't done a craft post in a looong time! In fact the pillow was completed last november! But here are a few little do dad's I mastered. ...can i just say one word. Modge Podge. okay, two words one name. If you have never used it, go get some and use it. You will love it. I do! oh.. and thanks amy bulter for the cute scrappy paper.
and you know, I need to start before and after pics. You would be amazed at the junk I transformed. I guess the reason that I never do initially is because I see it as junk that needs a face lift, and I just can't imagine a better life for it. So assuming that the project isn't going to turn out that well I just forget the before picture. Well this junk pleasantly surprised me!! It's amazing what a little sand paper, paint, glue and elbow grease can do!
Some of you might remember my square bamboo wreath in Twin Falls.. well in the move it was broken so I took it a part and viola!
This baby was just a plain black star that I had painted and didn't love so a little scrapbook paper and paint distressing made things alright.
This end table was a brown beastie thing from DI. It served it's purpose well but that was about all. My living room needed a change and this was an easy place to start! .. Paint was a Ralph Lauren Satin finish..something called ???? cant remember right now.
While I had my paint setup going, I decided to make over the twins! These were average plain Jane stools, and are actually at least 10 years old. I just LOVE how they turn out. I was hesitant about the decorative top at first, but I just thought, What the heck? they were ugly before..What's to lose!
Lastly is my pillow! I love this baby! Thanks Hyena In Petticoats for the instructions! I want to maybe make more but right now my attention is on my bedroom!
ps.. all these together look like alot of busy-ness. but they are not all together in the house. dont worry!
