A Couple of Little Projects
When I bought this big story of old glory board this summer, I thought I was going to find the perfect spot for it right away. Well, it's been sitting there on the floor ever since, and I finally got tired of picking it up to clean the floor.
So I dug this old bench out of the garage, dust and all. I have to admit that I've been looking for this bench all summer, and couldn't remember where I put it! Does that happen to you? Happens to me way too often.
So one little bottle of 99 cent paint later....
the board is off the floor, and can be appreciated better! I wanted a turquoisey blue, but this might be just the littlest bit too loud. Any easy ideas on how to tone it down? I couldn't get a good shot of the whole wall without standing on the dining room table, so this will have to do.
A little bit more Halloween. I printed these on card stock, from here.
Then I bought these great frames, already scruffed up, from Dollar Tree.
And here we have the final Halloween projects! No more. I'm done!
I was so sick of this sink skirt! I made it from an old tablecloth.
I like this cherry fabric much better! I can't believe I'm letting you see my filthy, chippy kitchen! Oh well, it is what it is. The cabinets are in dire need of a paint job!
Ok, one last quick Halloween picture. Vintage blow molds. These are already put away, back in the attic. I have nowhere to put them in my tiny house, and since I found out that they are worth something, they no longer go outside!
Finally, I'm ready to move on to Christmas! Are you? I can't wait to read this magazine, and start doing some Christmas crafts. I want to continue working on my glitter cottages that I started last year. Oh, I can't wait to start seeing all of the Christmas crafts on other blogs. It's the most wonderful time of the year! That was me singing a Christmas carol. Be glad you can't hear me!
