Mini Paint Project

I have finally completed a tiny project that has bugging me on my to-do list forever now!

Remember the little downstairs bathroom with the cute antique cupboard… (tiny room = bad photos, sorry!)

Well, here is the very sad, and a little scary inside of this cupboard…

So, a little paint and some pretty things to make the cupboard useful, and… viola!

The cupboard is antique, and therefore has many bumps and cracks, so it will never be “perfect,” but now its not such an eyesore. When company is over I will not be so embarrassed to let them reach in for another roll of toilet paper or necessity!

I even did a bit of decorating to the necessities in the cupboard. These antique jars got new fun lids. And a small box got a bright cover to hold small things.

Aah, much better! What do you think? More projects on the way too! 🙂

Here’s a quick peek at the bit of spring I brought in today…

And just a little sneak peek into the kitchen and living room. Hope that helps brighten the day!

A Touch Of Spring

I am taking a bit of a break from projects (you know, like a day or two!) after finishing the cabinets.  But, I did bring home a touch of spring.  Lillies, especially tiger, are my favorite flowers.  I added them to a wine bottle, and viola!  Spring is here!  Enjoy!

A New Headboard

I think this was Tony’s favorite project yet!  My mom had an old brass headboard for a king size bed.  She was going to throw it out, so I snatched it right up.  After a coat of primer and a couple coats of black paint…

He was so excited last night after we got it hung that he said the bedroom looks like a hotel now.  I take that as a compliment!  I was afraid that the black would be too much next to the black art above, but I think it worked out well.  Always a work in progress…

I think the pups approve too!
