Tea cart is finished!!

You may remember a while back I bought a wooden rough looking tea cart… I finally got around to finishing it!!

It looked like this originally:


It was a bit hideous. I took it and painted the whole thing in a flat black, and then I had the glass on top cut into a mirror.

I think it looks sooo much better!


We are now using it as a bar in our kitchen!


After that I bought an antique mirror also painted in flat black to hang over it.


It is all coming together!


Dream Bedroom Reveal

So we’re very close to being done and I can’t wait anymore.  We’re just waiting on a duvet cover and a chandelier.

My dream room was painted, new headboard, new art, new bedside tables, new corner chair and new picture frames (no pictures yet.)  And when I say “new” I mean old.  Everything in the room was thrifted, yard sale-d, or made by me.

The whole she-bang!

Our pretty corner chair and “new” mirror:

I am loving my new room!  It makes me want to re-do all the rooms in my house!


A wee craft

So my mom saw this:


And I told her “You are NOT paying that price for something I can make!” (Sorry bouclair! Eep!)

I printed the text out to fit an 8 x 10 frame and headed to goodwill to find one. I found a bigger one for 5 dollars, brand spanking new AND it came with matting! So I came up with this:


And that’s the craft of the day!
