Making My Wishlist Come True

So I that I have been dreaming about this of my bathroom.
(from Pottery Barn) With the help of a few Christmas ormaments and black craft wire....
I was able to get the look I wanted for about $25.

Just a little peek

I found this beauty at my favorit store... Habitat for Humanity Restore. It was $10. I went in thinking I would buy a brass light and then spray paint it. But I could not pass this one up.

I hope to turn it in to this with a little TLC.

I saw this at home improvement store and wanted something like it to put over my tub.

Oh and look what's done!

Reduce Reuse Recycle

I have a hard time tossing out those Butter Cookie tins. Yes most of the time they are not the cutest thing to look at.
But with a little spray paint....

Mod Podge and craft paper....

You can change the whole look. And make it to what ever you want. This are now home to tons of things to do with your kids on rainy days or in the summer when the kids need to have a little project.

Befores and Afters

Here is the chair I have been working on.

Painted black.

Then I sanded it and did a little distressing and stained it with a mahogany Minwax Gel Stain.

I just love how it turned out!

Sometime when I start a little project it balloons it to a bigger project. I have a plan but I have to pick away at it because it takes time to find what I'm looking for at the price I'm willing to pay. So I got the chair done and I put it in the entry way. I played a little musical furniture to get the lookI was looking for.

Here is what my entry looked like before.

Now here is the after.

I haven't put the fabric on the chair yet I'm testing it out. I'm not sure if that is "the one."
I also got this mirror with all that cool stuff I got the other day.

I just put a brown glaze on it and hung it above the fireplace.

Painting the fireplace and changing the mantel is on my someday list.
