I’ve been getting crafty! I am notorious for starting a project and leaving it unfinished, so I am always super excited when I’ve finished something (even if it’s years later!).
We recently moved after a burglary and that inspired me to get off my butt and finish some projects on my list since forever, and also to post it!! Some are recons, some are new…. I wasn’t sure where to post it all, but take a look at the pics. Let me know what you think!
My brother & I did this wall art and totally inspired by this post from grammardog!! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=246766.0
Was the messiest and most fun project! Then I bought the frames at Michael’s and 2 of the glasses broke. Replaced them and after the move another broke. So I have to get that replaced and put back up
sorry about the crapalicious pics…I can’t find the good ones I took when they were hanging. They looked really pretty then.
the bamboo is the one missing the glass and now frame
Then my dad and I built a bookshelf - he suggested we paint it green, which looked awful and showed up all the flaws in the wood (re-used) and workmanship (we’re amateurs!!) so I painted it a brown type twice and sanded, then sealed with polyurethane. Then It got scratched in the move so needs some touching up!
and a close up
Next is the lamp that is been unfinished for 2 years. We took an old plant pot, filled it was some soil and stones and made it a lamp! It’s still not done… needs a paint job, and gotta fill back up with pretty stones since its just dirt, but otherwise its functional… took forever to find a shade and then it still wasn’t right, but we made it work!
Then I recovered the porch chairs.
This is the couch (and before fabric).
I thought I had waay too much fabric, but guess what? I’ve run out!!!! Now I have to find a compliment for the couch since the store has noo more
aaahhh!! So it goes. All I have to do is put on the fabric buttons for the tufting (is that the word?)
and just for kix... my baby
