Press Board Make-over

I got this cheap cabinet shelf for $10 ( yes I over paid)  Its the typical boring white, press board shelf you can find at any big store.  One of the glass windows was broken and it was scratched up but its amazing what a little chicken wire and paint can do!!!  I love the color too its agave from Behr.  The remaining piece of glass is now a shelf.

Dresser Redo Do-over

Sometimes a color just doesn't work.  I had this dresser for sale, forever and everyone liked it but no one loved it enough to buy it.  It was time for a change from farmhouse to cottage chic from taupe and raspberry to blue gray and walnut.  It started with sanding four layers of paint off and ended with me dumping a new can of polyurethane all over my garage floor the cost of this project just keeps going up and up, no one will be able to afford this by the time Im done.

Fall decorating and old mason jars up-cycled

I recently updated my booth for fall and took some pictures of some of the smaller projects I have done.
Burlap Banners

I had some old wooden tool boxes that I thought would work as a centerpieces for fall or even summer picnic tables.
with the help of some chalk paint I imagined napkins, spoons, knifes, forks and even flowers in it.

some more odds and ends

My kids old broken crayons

creepy yet kinda neat lamp

My doll head lamp was just featured 
@Vintage Inspiration Friday

Just in time for halloween I made a strange and macabre lamp.  I used a mix of old lamp parts and an old doll head.  scary, weird, spooky, vintage, victorian,  or doll head chic...well here it is!
