I am absolutely thrilled with how my DIY stained wood shim mirror turned out. I know there are a zillion tutorials out there for making mirrors like this. However, I think I am the only crazy one that sanded and stained 315 wood shims. That part was not for the weak of heart. Me-oh-my! But I love it, I love it, I love it and don’t regret the decision for one minute!
I am a fan of jewelry. Not dainty, fine, pretty jewelry. But the big, gaudy, blingy kind. When it comes to earrings, the longer the better. And I adore dangly drop ones. I fell in love with the $48 Piccadilly Chandelier Earrings from Anthropologie. So when Michaels challenged me to ReCreate something I decided these pretty chandelier earrings would be just the right project.
My kids love Melissa & Doug Wooden Toys. They are such high quality toys and we always seem to ask for them for gifts. Each of the sets come with a wood crate that stores the set. While I love the crates they really could use a top on them in order to make it into our playroom (I am not a fan of pieces everywhere). So what has happened over the years of receiving Melissa & Doug toys is we have amassed a collection of these wood crates.
Do you have big plans for Easter this weekend? I have family coming from Chicago and Michigan so my house should have lots of chaos, noise, fun in it! I hope you are excited as I am. Today I thought I would show you some of my past Easter projects.
lI have a thing for earrings…big earrings actually. It is an inherent degenerative gene passed down from my mother. All those times I heard my mom say “Where are your earrings?” before I left the house, has made me a believer that earrings are a must accessory. Last year I got these really pretty purple feather earrings from Jewel Mint.
Birthdays can be expensive. Finding cheap birthday decorations that are cute can often be challenging. I created a wreath made out of the dollar store streamers and a STYROFOAM™ Brand Wreath. The perfect part about this wreath is that you can remove the steamers after the party and use your wreath form again. Can you guess the theme of my daughter’s party by the colors of the wreath? Bonus points for the those that are right.
This was my last Roadkill Rescue challenge on Indy Style, the local lifestyle show I have been a pat of for the last 18 months. Viewer Jennifer submitted this worn out cabinet/dresser combo she had taking up room in her garage for a year and a half. So I literally took the entire thing apart and pretty much just used the wood to create a standing bathroom cabinet.
