Bed Makeover- Masterbedroom Part 2

Recycled-new bed!!
I have always loved are bed, but i was considering getting rid of it, BUT then had a change of mind and just ended up painting it black. It was a light light finished wood. Pretty, but not the style i was looking for. IT looks great in the room. We just need some color, Be patient we will get to that!

The night stand was givin to me along time ago and painted it black forever ago.So now it looks perfect in are room. (now i just have stil the matching one out of my sons room..SHhhhh)

I bought this lamp at the Thrift Store for a dollar ( forgot to take a before picture) But it was bright yellow, Which was great because my colors where black, white, and yellow. Not anymore, im doing black, white, and teal blue! No judging its going to look so cute, i have so many ideas!!

Remember these frames from YEsterdays post. Well i painted them again so they werent so SHINY, me no likey shinny! i think they look SO much better!

Bead board frames~masterbedroom makeover PART 1

I made these 24 by 24 inch frames, with a 8 by 10 frame in the middle yesterday out of bead board. I am FINALLY doing my bedroom and these bad boys are going in there. I havent figured out what pictures im going to put in them yet. BUT i made these by following this tutorial (the only thing i did different is i used an old frame to go on the inside instead of making my own molding!

Hutch Redo, Dinning room finished!!

OK so this was pretty hutch that i bought, BUT definitely wasnt my style. Also the gold hands had to go. So i replaced the hutch that i posted before with this new one. I LOVE it!So this is the bottome before.....
This is the top before......

It came with no glass for the window parts. So i put the fabric on the sides. Then i added beadboard every where else. I stained the beadborad the color that the hutch was starting out. Then i painted it white, sanded it, and then stained it again. I think it looks perfect in are dining room and i can say but a few pictures the dinning room is finished!

St. Patrick's Day Wreath!!!

St. Patricks Day isnt a big deal around her, but i thought i would make a few decorations for this lovely Green holiday! So this is what i did....
Dollar store wreath and hot glued Pecans all the way around. Spray painted it white. Then for the clover i cut the shape out of card board. We all know streamers for birthday partys, i got 2 rolls for a $ 1 at the dollar store. I fold it in half and with hot glue i just bunched it all close together. WA-La! added some tule and hung it on my pantry door!

Yes some of nuts cracked when i hot glued them on.....and i burnt my finger a few times and said a few choice words...i Dislike the glue gun!

i for got to mention....

OK when i started this blog i forgot to mention... im a trash digger....i havent actually dug threw someone's trash to find there treasures....but i do look around in ppl yards. Freaky right! we just moved into a bigger home so i am always trying to find cheap ways to occupy the space.STORY: I had drove by this hutch so many times by my house and it was in someones trash i finally got up the nerve to knock on there door and ask them if they were going to throw this hutch away? I was pretty sure i new who the lady was that lived there. YA!IT wasnt who i thought it i felt So dumb asking if i could have this hutch ( i did ask if i could pay for it, but he insisted just taking it off his hands would be plenty) so he loaded it up for me and i brought this baby home. It was already red but really faded, so i just repainted red and sanded it. I LOVE it...Thank you neighbor! These ppl are in my church ward, we are new to the ward and we will forever be known as the lady that digs threw are trash! Oh well!!

Gift for Him!!

i made this little coupon book and reason i love you book out of uno cards. I used all the red ones, and for the 10 i used a phase 10 card. I basically used everything i already had. So i had to spend NO money on this. I covered the Uno part with scrap valentine paper, and have the 1-10 reasons why i love my husband and also 1-10 coupons. Ill keep it to myself what i put on them. BUT this is a very thoughtful, CHEAP gift for your husband.

We have been living here for about 4 months now, and we still had no curtains for the dinning room. I finally decided to take down the sheets and blankets and make some curtains! This is a good project for someone that is just starting to sew. Curtains are so much cheaper to make then to buy, for these curtains it cost about $ 6.00 a panel. Besides Free, Cant get better than that!!!
