I thought I'd share what all I did this weekend. I get so busy and always forget to do a blog post...any of you have that same problem? It's like the world goes by so fast and when I finally have the time, I am too tired.
So here's what I did...
Mom and I had a yard sale and it wasn't going very well, so I thought I better do something productive rather than just sit around waiting for someone to come buy our stuff!
This coffee table was just sitting in our garage already painted of course, so I painted a stencil on it, sanded it down and then distressed it. Didn't it turn out beautiful? I love the little bird in the wreath.
I've made a few things with this stencil and I never get tired of it.
Then I made this memo board. I found the clothespins at Michaels and added the chicken wire. The frame was a buy off of Facebook Yardsale and then I painted and distressed it. Love it!
This was in Mom's stuff to sell so I swiped it (something we both do to each other when we have a sale). Then I painted and distressed the wood frame in a grey.
I had these two chairs in the sale but when no one was showing up, I decided they needed a makeover. Painted and distressed, recovered the seat with some shabby chic fabric and then a lady came and wanted both. I didn't even get to finish the other chair...but at least she was happy with them!
So today being Sunday, I wanted to do some sewing since I love to! I went through my fabric and found a twin duvet that I had bought over a year ago at Salvation Army. I had 3 Shabby Chic pink balloon shades but I needed 6. So I cut the pink shades in two and ripped apart the duvet. Then I added the fabric by sewing and re-used the little "O" rings on the back side of the pink shades and ruffled them.
I always wanted a little more on the windows and these hit the spot for me!
All the while getting on facebook and checking the yard sale sites....and look what I found today while sewing! I am one happy lady, God is so good!
So there ya have it...just one of my many weekends. See now how busy I am all of the time? Oh, and did I mention that laundry was being done too? lol
Now I need another weekend to recover from this one!
