Bathroom Mirror Frame

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Since we're redoing the bathroom I thought I might put a mirror over the sink instead of the medicine cabinet. I've been looking in thrift stores and found nothing, then I remembered an unfinished frame that I bought a looooong time ago that was just hanging around in my closet.

Stamped and Painted Books

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

I like old books, however I haven't come across those really beautiful vintage leather bound books.Feeling crafty one day I decided to paint, stamp and distress a few Dollar Store and thrift store books.

The books were random hard backs, I tried to stick with the ones that had a dark cover  because I could use that to help distress the books. This is a sample of the books in their original condition.

Adding Spring

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

All of my seasonal decorations are buried in my shed, behind home reno stuff and an entire dining room set that I have to re do. I didn't want to be left out of the spring celebrations in blog land so I used a few items that I had in the house and cobbled together a spring wreath and a little vignette.

I couldn't get to my grapevine wreath forms either, they are also behind the great reno wall, so I used a 10" cardboard cake circle to make the wreath. I added moss and silk flowers and eggs that I made a couple of years ago. I put a nest under a cloche and added faux tulips to  galvanized buckets purchased recently at Marshalls.
