I bought this Telephone Table at the thrift shop for $10 and my sister called 'dibs'
So I painted it ...
... reupholstered the seat [oh it smelled!],...
Seat back detail
... and did her Monogram on the table.
I think she is really gonna' love it!!
They finally brought Hobby Lobby to my town. I had a blast there the other day, and could have bought a truckload of things I loved.
I saw this set of 3 canisters in black and white with some red, the large said 'Live', the medium said 'Laugh', and the small said 'Love'. I was dying to buy them for sis, they are perfect for her... but they were too pricy.
So, I am going to try making them!
I think I'll take 3 coffee cans [I save them for the horse rescue for donation cans], paint them black, and then add chalk paint and then I can write the words in chalk, or maybe stencil with the stencil I did her Telephone Table with. I'll post them if they come out ok. :D
If they never come to fruition it's cause I do know some snakes have taken up residence in the crate I have all the cans in out in the garage... and once I see one of those slithery dudes,... well the project is over after that.
I'm scrambling to get it all done as I am heading up to see her Friday to help her paint, decorate and get settled and ready for Thanksgiving! Can not wait to see her new/first house! So exciting!
I linked up with Savvy Southern Style's wow-us-wednesdays, and Kammys Korner, trash-2-treasure-tuesdays There are some awesome projects posted at both blogs.
I love a blog party... it cuts down my computer time substantially to have those select projects to peruse... but boy oh boy did I waste time after Christmas looking at all the 'year in review' parties!!! I thought about doing one myself [a recap post], but with the hiatus I took I'm doubting many of you have stuck around [understandably].
