Spring Tulip Basket

Spring Tulip Basket

It's been a while since we did some crafting around here hasn't it? How about a little something Spingy for the front door to tell this snow to GO AWAY? I'm not so sure it will work, but I made something anyway...a Spring Tulip Basket! Since my 31 days of thrifty madness is starting this Sunday, I have thrifty on the brain, so I incorporated a little thriftiness into this project. You can easily guess which part was thrifted, right? You probably said the basket and you would be … [Read more...]

Lacy-Drawer Side Table

Lacey -Drawer Side Table

Hello lovely friends, I've got another sweet makeover to share today! Take a look at this little fixer upper I found at the thrift store for $7: It's hard to tell by this photo, but it has a horrendous paint job and the black you see around the flower detail? It's ink pen.  The paint was put on so thick in areas that I knew I would have to either strip it or sand it. I chose the latter and gave it a good sanding with my orbital sander before repainting. Here is its sweet … [Read more...]

Petite Paris Side Tables

Petite Paris Tables

Welcome...I have a cute makeover for you today! My Mom had these two petite side tables in her attic that she had painted and stenciled a while ago. She never was happy with the results and offered them to me to redo for my booth. Of course I'll take them! Here they are with their stencil: Not terrible, but for this to work the stencil needed to be oval. And not brown. After I sanded the stencil away and repainted the top, I decided to give these sweet antique tables a French … [Read more...]
