My little crafters

Ok so she doesnt like her pic taken. But she has to live with it!
Here they are painting wooden hearts
Heres my little camera ham.

Old Sewing Drawers

Here are my drawers when I first bought them


And after....

Painted white and pink. Added some old knobs and some disstress...

Now I can use them to store my tools out of sight

More reasons to paint!

I love it when nature gives me reason to stay home and paint! (as long as I have things to paint, that is)

Child Size Drop Leaf Table

My little table I bought. Ended up being a bit smaller then I thought. Ill figure out what to do with this baby.

Cedar Chest

I fell in love with this cedar chest as soon as I had seen it.

And I did what I normall do. Paint!!!
(yes I know I need to clean up my floor. Lots of paint stains. Thats why they invented Mr. Clean magic eraser---best invention ever!!!)

Old Table Legs

I got these babies on my last pick with Vicki. And she gave me this idea also.

With a little paint and imagination....

Now to figure out how I want to display them
Candle Holder?
Plant Stand?
Im getting close. Im thinking a Boston Fern might look good hanging over the sides on this one. Ill be scoping out the nurseries now!

Glass to Stone Vase

I was browsing the clearance asile at Hobby Lobby and came across this glass vase. It was marked down to $6.12. I knew I had something I could use with this so I snagged it up. I also knew that how something looks doesnt mean it has to stay that way.

I bought this can of American Accents Stone spray paint. This stuff is wonderful and comes in many colors! A little on the pricy side for my taste but worth it in the end. I have found that Wal Mart is the cheapest.

I used 2 coats on my glass vase and this is how it came out.

Then to add the foliage

Not too bad....

Simple pen/marker holder

I needed something to hold my pens, markers, scissors. But I didnt want to go out and buy anything for that. So I came up with this idea
Just clean up an empty container of sour cream, cottage cheese, etc.

I got out the handy dandy mod podge and some scrap fabric

And there you go! So simple! Next time I will use a dark fabric just so you cant see the letters on the container. But noone is really going to pay attention.
