Another makeover post!

2 posts in one week!  Can you tell that it is summer? :)

I bought this cute little table at a garage sale for $5!  The person that was running the sale had said that she had thought about keeping it for herself but could not think about what to do with it. I did not have that problem at all!

After sanding and priming I decided that I wanted to paint it yellow…..I was slightly shocked at exactly how YELLOW Behr's honey locust was but I continued onward.

Did I mention how yellow it is????

I found the perfect knob…..

And the perfect spot!

For those of you that have not had my house tour yet, the walls are stucco swirl (not my doing, the previous owner LOVED this look) and the carpet is green (also not my choice but the family room is kinda low on the remodel list). So picture it with a light tan wall and hardwood flooring!

Back in the Saddle!

It has been a long time.
A VERY long time……
The good news is…blogging is like riding a bicycle.
Just jump back in!

I figured that I would start with a little before and after craft project.

I love garage sales!  I got this little drawer at a garage sale for 2 bucks…. (actually I got 2!) and I have kept them in my gargae for a year.  I compiled many ideas of what to do with this gem but could not commit.  I eventually decided to gift it.  I knew the "who" so the rest was easy!

I had read a blog post about the Krylon brand Dual spray paint and decided to give it a try.

I loved the end result!  the paint took a while to dry but we had been having some humid weather so it is hard to tell whether it was the weather or the paint.  I wanted to add a little personal touch to the box so I covertly asked the recipient of this beauty what "one word" she liked best!  The rest came about with the use of my cricut and some peel and stick vinyl.  

So pretty!

The other box is still in the garage and was painted turquoise…..not quite finished but I am sure that once it is, it will make an appearance here!
