I went back to the thrift store and those paintings were still there.  AND, they were 1/2 off!  So, I snagged them and cleaned them up a bit.  Now for sale in the shop!  Check them out!

Little Coaster Project

January 23, 2009 at 10:18 am (Projects) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Tony has Dallas Cowboys coasters. I have Chicago Bears coasters. Neither were going to be displayed in our nice living room. I love football as much as anybody, but the football paraphernalia is reserved for the basement game room/bar. So, we needed some nice coasters to protect our living room tables. I change my mind frequently, so I wanted something inexpensive or changeable. That’s when I found these. The Dollar Store had a pack of four glass coaster for a couple bucks! Not only are they cheap, but they are changeable. They are the kind of coasters meant for inserting a picture under the glass. I decided to put a piece of black and silver damask wrapping paper in the picture slot. Here was my process:

My supplies.  All I used was a scissors and the material (wrapping paper).

I used the blank piece of paper that came in the frame as a guide to cut a rectangle out of the wrapping paper.  It then slides into a clear picket in the coaster frame.  It was really THAT simple.

This is what it looked like slid into the coaster frame.

They even have their own little wooden holder.

It was so simple and I can change what is in the frames any time I want to. The glass is also very easy to clean off. I wish they were all black, as I am not so fond of the different colors, but it does make it easier to keep track of your drink. And, for a few dollars, who can complain?

A Touch Of Color

December 24, 2008 at 3:23 am (Tid Bits) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

There doesn’t seem to be much color around here lately.  The skies are dreary and snow is blowing accross the roads. Again.  Ugh.  But, amongst the dullness of these winter days, I have some very pretty flowers to share.  A client came into my office today and to thank me for the Christmas gifts our company had for his children, he had brought be a small bouqet of gorgeous flowers.  Hope these cheer your day as much as they did mine!

 

I took them home and added them to a vintage wine bottle.  It was all we had that was skinny enough, but I ended up loving it!
