Picture Frame Chalkboard

Happy Memorial Day! A HUGE thanks to all the veterans (thanks Dad!)!!

I scored this seriously cool picture frame at a garage sale last weekend.

I painted it bright blue.

Then took the painting that was inside and repainted it... with chalkboard paint.

Too cute, don't you think?

I'll be linking to these parties this week.

Plant Stand Re-do

A few weeks ago, we went on a crafting field trip of sorts. We headed over to the Allegan Antique Market. It was SO cool! I scored tons of awesome loot (more on this later). That's where I found this plant stand.

Great bones. Not so great color.

So I painted her up and made her purdy.




So adorable. It's amazing what paint color can do!

I'll link up to these parties this week.

Quatrefoil Tray

A year or two ago I wanted a tray for the coffee table in my basement. As I walked through Target (love that place) I found a white, square tray on clearance. Score! It started out looking like this (except in real life, it's not blurry - thanks camera):


It's cute and enjoyed some time in the basement, but lately I've wanted to switch things up a bit. Enter my obsession with the quatrefoil pattern. Jen at Tatertots and Jello made an awesome printable pattern.

I traced it onto the tray.

Then I began to paint. I wanted a color I haven't used before, so I chose Raw Umber.

I like how it turned out.

It just has that extra pizzazz, don't you think?

I will be linking to these parties this week.

Refinished Footstool

I scored an awesome deal on this old footstool. This is what it started out looking like:

And it even opens- look how cute!

But this top part of it... I don't like it so much.

So I took it all apart.

I sanded, cleaned and painted the bottom of it a light yellow color. I removed the old fabric from the top.

I used the old fabric to measure and cut a new cover.

I then stapled it on with the staple gun.

I put it all back together.

When you're all done, put yer feet up!

Too cute! What treasures can I store inside?

Stay tuned for some other vintage treasures I am refinishing. Until then, I will be linking up to these parties this week.
