I’m Published!

16 Nov

Remember that old filing cabinet I was working on in the Summer?  Here is a reminder of what it looked like before…

And here is what it looks like now!

This project has been done for quite some time now, but I’ve been holding off posting pics because…….I’ve been invited to have a regular column in Bread n’  Molasses magazine!  I used the above cabinet as my first feature and didn’t feel right posting pics here until I knew the mag went to print.   For more details on its transformation, go to www.breadnmolasses.com and check out the online version of the magazine.  I’m on page 30, but be sure to browse the entire issue.

I’m a bit nervous, but mostly excited about this new venture!

DIY Wall Art

19 Sep

I’ve slowly been doing my bathroom over. I’m pretty much done except for a few touches – one of which is some art to hang on a bare wall.  Since I can’t afford to buy anything right now, I thought I’d try my hand at making my own.  I’ve seen many people do this successfully but wasn’t quite sure I could pull it off….I’m still not.

I purchased some tiny canvases at our local dollar store. 3 for $2. Can’t beat that!  Then I scoured the net for some ideas and found this.  I painted the base of the canvases during the day and then relaxed in front of the television that night with a tiny brush and a glass of wine. What better way to spend a Saturday night?

What do you think?  I’m still not sure about them.  I’m scared they come off as kid-ish.  I’ll know more once I hang them on the wall.  I promise I’ll post pics of my bathroom when it’s done.
