A couple new things!
(I can't believe it's almost been a year! I'm so behind!!!)
Available for purchase in my Etsy shop.
I am in the middle of making 10 - 20 chalkboards right now.
I will be posting them all for sale in my Etsy shop.
The prices will range depending on the frame and the size of the chalkboard!
If you would like a certain color or size please let me know! I would love to custom make one just for you!
Yard sale Finds 10/16/11
I found lots of little goodies this week!!
Thank you so much for stopping by!!!
One for the week...
Biff accidently broke one of the wine glasses that my mom gave me. These are the wine glasses from when my mom and my dad got married! So I had to do something with it!!
I decided to make a dessert stand! I think it turned out adorable!
I also found this candle stick at a yard sale so I made a larger one to match!
I just love them!!!
A little off topic
So this has NOTHING to do with crafts or DIY but... I tried heatless curls on Wednesday night and I was so stoked about the results! I just have to share!!!
I watched this video:
These are cell phone pictures so I apologize ahead of time for the blur...
(please keep in mind that I just woke up!!!)
It took about 5 minutes to wrap my hair the night before. Bryce and Biff thought it looked so funny the night before... but then I pulled the headband out the next morning took about 2 min seperating the curls, added a clip and it was beautiful! And the curls lasted ALL DAY LONG! My hair does not hold curl, at all, ever... SO this is HUGE for me! I will be doing this a lot more now. I'm also going to try a few other heatless curl methods too. I'll let you know how they work out!!!
Finishing what I started!
This is just something I decided to do at the last minute last night. I had this beer sign and it had a great frame, but the actual sign said something about the holidays and was seasonal so it wasn't my favorite.
I spray painted the entire picture, frame and all black. I used gloss because that's what I had.
Then I sprayed only the very edge red all the way around. I did this just to add a little color because when it was all black the pretty frame kind of disappeared.
I Mod Podged on the print out that I had.
I saw this print out here (which is one of my favorite blogs) one day and fell in love with it. I have had it printed out at home just waiting to do something with it! I think this worked out awesome!
I also made a chalkboard!
I'm so excited about this one!
I picked this up at a yard sale for $3!
Thanks for stopping by!!
Every Saturday I go to all the yard sales in town. This Sat I got so many great things! I got this wooden tray, I had no need for it but it was great and it was $2!
I primed and painted it and Mod Podged it with pretty paper that I got in a scrapbook kit from Wal-Mart! It turned out great and I had a lot of fun with it!
My favorite part!!
I also got this cabinet to go over the toilet in the guest bathroom! This was a GREAT find for me because we budgeted $50 on this cabinet and I found it for $5!!!
I sanded, primed, sanded, painted, sanded, painted.... But I finally got the smooth look I was going for and the cabinet looks great! Hopefully we can get it up today and I will post a finished picture of the bathroom!!
These are the other items that I got. The skateboard is for shelves in Bryce's bedroom. This is the only one I have so far I would like at least 3, but 5 would be better! I want used boards with dirty wheels and would love to have a couple with stickers on them for extra character! If you have one laying around that you don't want please let me know! I don't mind paying up to $5 each for them! As far as the other items, I haven't decided their fate yet but I will definitely post pictures when I figure it out.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
