Too Pooped to Post

Makeover Monday

What do you think I made out of an old, rusty silver tray from the thrift store?
Well, it involved a can of white spray paint and a beautiful vinyl monogram. I am going to make 3 of them, one for each grandson. They love to have McDonald's breakfast on a tray when they come to sleep over. These are so much more elegant than the old plastic cafeteria trays we were using. I ordered my monograms from Carla who has a shop on Etsy. She is great, reasonably priced and did a beautiful job.

Crafty Corner

I had alot of fun making this flower. All it takes is a small amount of organza and a pretty rhinestone button in the middle. There is a terrific tutorial here
Very easy to follow and not much time if you want a quick project. It involves a lit candle, so I worked near a sink of water and with my DH at home just in case, but I had no problem.
Thanks to Tresa for a great idea.

Makeover Monday

The Before ...
Medicine cabinet minus the brown faux wood laminate door. Yuck!
Repainted, revitalized, re-invented.

The ceramic fishy in the middle was made by our 3 year old grandson.

Makeover Monday

I have been working on my creative space. It was once just a closet.....
....the Before picture.

I was so excited to get a chair cover for my black office chair from the Thrift Store, a real bargain @ 5.99

I made my Inspiration Board from a picture frame and an old cork board that I cut down to size.
