Happy St Patty's Day!!

                     I made this last year & thought I would post again - so easy!!
May the love and protection St. Patrick can give - Be yours in abundance as
long as you live.
May you always walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.

Window of My Dreams

I found this window outside a house when I was still living in NC & had to bring it w/me to OH because I knew I'd find a use for it "someday". Well my "someday" came & now it's completely transformed.
My son & I already started breaking out the windows when I realized I hadn't taken the BEFORE picture!
All you need to start this project is:
1 old window                                                     
1 child to break windows                                                    
1 hammer                                                   
goggles (a must!)                                                    
1 old wagon (to catch the glass)

                                    Having fun w/the hammer!!
Next, you'll need:
2 foam sheets                          
thin batting                          
fabric scraps - I used Amy Butler fabric                          
pretty (or not so pretty) tape for the back

Total cost: $2.00 for foam sheets - I had everything else.
Here is the back - not pretty, but I can always change the fabric, if I want.

Here is the front. Yes, I realize that the fabric is in all different directions. I think it looks more interesting that way & I can move it around whenever I want a different "look". I left a section open so I can hang my jewelry or "whatever" in the center. Also, I left the original paint on it because I like the "old" feel to it.

This will be going in my new crafting space so I can look, dream &
be inspired!
This is my window in my crafting area - LOVE IT!! Doesn't everyone need a bright pink angel to look over them??  ;)

Cabinet Makeover

This cabinet has been around for awhile.... It was first in the entry of my childhood home for many years - my Mom kept her good crystal in it. It then got passed on to my sister who kept her fish tank on it. Now I have it & it holds my jewelry making supplies.

The cabinet was VERY dated - does not go w/my decor at all, so I primed it...

Then I painted it Behr Blue Jewel - much too blue for me. Then painted it Behr Teal Zeal, not too sure of that color either, so I got out my 150 grit sandpaper & went a'sanding...
The picture doesn't do it justice - you can see the blue in some places & the white peaks through on the edges. I went to Anthropologie for the perfect handle - loves it!!

Now I need to get some paint on those walls, now that the wallpaper is off.......
