I am on a t-shirt kick this week. Did you see the scarf and dress I made for Kayla already? I thought it would be fun to paint stripes on an old t-shirt (that got accidentally bleached – DOH!) and turn it into a ruffled striped skirt for my daughter. Now I did this project a couple of years ago and my daughter still wears the skirt. While is is almost ready to be passed down on the hand-me-down train I thought we could retake a look at it once more before that happens.
Boots, shoes, jackets, gloves, scarves, hats, etc. All of the pain-in-the-butt winter gear you need if you live in an area with snow. Unfortunately for me, I live in one of those areas. I am constantly trying to come up with systems to keep our family’s winter needs organized. Laura, the NY girl, has the same problem but probably double the amount of snow. She came up with an adorable idea using vintage crates to create an area in her mudroom to collect all those winter accessories.
Today I have teamed up with some other bloggers to showcase Krylon Looking Glass Mirror-Like spray paint. It is my new favorite. I had never used this spray paint before the last couple of weeks. I first had fun doing a mercury glass technique for my last Krylon Christmas Floral Centerpiece. And today I sprayed some old Jack Daniels bottles with it for a little Christmas vignette.
Laura is going to show you how she took an old door and made her own version of a beverage bar station. Laura can rock the doors. If you missed last month’s post she made a kitchen herb garden out of an old door. Check out today’s think outside the box door project.
As part of the bird and branches baby shower I threw for my friend Aimee, I cut up some old tree limbs I found curbside and made them into place card holders that doubled as photo holders after the shower. I am digging bringing some natural elements into my home lately so I saved a few for myself.
1980s parquet tables with glass insets run rampant on Craigslist. I scored one for cheap and transformed it into an amazing DIY Lego table for my son. The cool part is the baseplates are removable so you can move your Lego creations to another location.
Karianne from Thistlewood Farms amazes me with her think-outside-the-box projects. She repurposed an old shipping pallet into a flipping desk!!! What in the world. Reason number 535 why I love that she is a contributor on my blog. Be amazed friends…be amazed.
