Little Key Project

April 28, 2015 at 10:58 am (Uncategorized)

I love a good project. Even more so, I love a good quick project. So when I saw a photo on Pinterest of old keys bent into hooks I got an idea…

I love keys and have been collecting random ones since I was a kid. My oh-so-amazing man fired and bent 8 keys for me. He also had a piece of pine wood with bark. He burnt the wood and then helped me hang the keys and seal the whole thing. Now we have a rack for hanging all of our many keys! It turned out so cute and rustic!

Our New Old Curio Cabinet

September 14, 2014 at 10:54 am (Uncategorized)

I wish I had taken a before picture. I know, I seem to say that all 5 he time, but really. I’m kicking myself. But, picture dark, oudated, and plain bland.  The little corner curio cabinet was fake wood, but had potential. So, here she is after paint and new knobs.

So, phone photos aren’t the best. This quick drive-by post doesn’t do the new cabinet justice really. But, you get the idea. And, you know that I am still here, I still do projects, and I remember you, but I’m just busy. 🙂  What do you think?

Little Side Table Project

June 17, 2013 at 6:41 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Hi all!  I want to share some wedding projects and some other big news very soon, but for today I wanted to stop by with a quick project. 

We found this little side table at a garage sale for .50 cents.  Yup, .50 cents. 

Image

 

Shabby, yes, a bit.  But, I loved the round shape and primitive pedestal.  So, I patched, sanded and painted.  I picked a burgundy-ish color and then I stenciled my favorite paisley on the top in silver.  I thought this was a bit modern to mix with this little table.  I roughed up the edges and faded out the design on the top.  I think it turned out really cute!

What do you think?  Well, this little guy already found a new happy home 🙂

I love the bright yellow of this chair.  I also love the wood details, the white trim, the vintage style…

Fancied Up

We are just about completely ready for the party, but last night decided that the dogs should be clean and pretty too.  After the bathing, brushing, and clipping, we thought Marley would make a pretty girl with red toenails.  Have you ever tried this before?  Yes, I am that cheesey.  She is adorable but, man, was it work! 🙂  Check out our pretty dogs!  And, have a great weekend!
