What have we done??? Oh so many, its hard to count....well, I have enough fingers, technically to count them all, but, really, you don't want a number...(read not enough to really brag this much about but I need something to feel good about).
Below are three of our accomplishments.
1) chalkboards for the kitchen
2) pot hanger
3) makeover on an old drawer
These first few pictures are of the chalkboards. We went to Goodwill and bought some cheap frames. I sanded the paint to give it a bit of an antique look, painted the glass with chalkboard paint, and turned old spice containers into chalkholders. We're pretty happy with them so far.
These next few pics are of the pot hanger which doesn't have any pots yet. Another find from Goodwill, we took it home, painted it black for a primer, painted turquoise blue on top lightly and hung it up. I'll put up final pictures of the ladder when its complete with the pots hanging decoratively from its posts.
This last project is of a drawer my mother couldn't let go of because it was from her childhood. There was nothing endearing about this drawer. It was simply misplaced sentimentality. But against my better judgement, we kept the horror. But in order for me to keep it in my kitchen where I'd have to look at it daily, it was decided on high, that decoupage was in its future. It was hideous. I really should of taken pictures of this wooden heinous fiend with aging, curling yellow lining previous to its transformation. But I wasn't thinking that far ahead. I'm pretty pleased with the finished product, although I'm not sure decoupage is the best way to go for kitchen things that occasionally get wet.
