I’ve been having a blast working on the decorations for a friend’s baby shower for the past two weeks and today I made over a picture frame that I’m going to include in the shower game prizes and since that is not for my friend [per say] I will go ahead and share it here!
So, here you have it!!
The frame came with that not so attractive [for my taste] green paper on the front. So, thrifty me spray painted it with Krylon dover white and made some rosettes from some left over material from the shower things and hot glued them onto it and I’m almost tempted to keep it!! Lol!!
Aren’t whites so fresh and crisp looking? (: As much as I want to keep, I will not because I can always make another one for myself!!
BUT before I can do that let me share a couple of thrifty goodies that I’ve found lately and that I’ve definitely fallen in love with already because in my head, I can already see what they will look like when I’m done with them!!
Look at these two boxes.
The larger one is a silverware box and I paid $2.50 for it. The smaller one is sort of like a very old version of a rolodex and the best thing is that I got it for only $.75!!
It even has the original alphabetized dividers in it still!! Have I ever mentioned how much I love, love old things like this?! Well, I dooooo!!!!!!!! ((:
I also have this beutiful chest that I got because someone didn’t want anymore (can you seriously imagine someone not wanting it? Impossible, I know!! Lol!)!! Anyway, if you know me, there’s no way I was going to pass it up so I’ve had it for some time already but I’ve procrastinated getting to it because I know that making it pretty is going to be a big job and I still don’t know exactly what I want to do with it!! All I know is that it’s going to be some shade of white when I’m done with it.
I havent taken pictures of the inside but it’s cedar and it’s beautiful inside (and it smells oh, sooooo good when you open it)!!! I can hardly wait to get started on it now!! Lol!! But before I do, I also found a desk for my sewing machine and I’m determine to make that one pretty first because I need it ASAP so I can finally get some sewing projects done. But not to worry, I will post about it when I get to it, too!!
I hope everyone had a great weekend and now I will take myself to bed because we all know that mondays are not merciful at all!!
Night, night everyone!!! (:
