Old bookcase

Friday, December 16, 2016

I haven't been on here in a good minute with work and school. I finished school in May and started working full time and have been neglecting most everything else. Since, I have been so busy I never really got around to spring cleaning. I was going through our garage and the old owners left this super ugly bookcase. It was pretty heavy and I didn't want to haul it to the dump, so I decided to do something else with it. My backyard has been pretty lackluster and it needed some color. I had a bunch of leftover paint and wanted to give a little inspo to anyone looking for something to do with junk furniture.

Ignore my dying plant... I replanted it and well, as you can see it just didn't go so well.

Painted Chair

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

This was one of my old kitchen chairs that my dogs decided to chew. I was going to just throw it away, but I got the idea of using it as a little d├ęcor in the backyard. Since it was going to be outside I wanted to really distress it.

Chunky Scarf Pattern

 This is very quick pattern and it is great for beginners. I wanted to make a scarf that was a little bit different. Kinda reminds me of the Katniss vest. I used about 2.5 balls of yarn. Luckily Michaels has a 2 for $5 deal and I had some left over from my Chunky Bib Scarf.

Doily Wall Hanging

This was a quick little project. The longest part was waiting for the paint to dry on my tree branch.

Comic Book Dresser

I wanted to show you guys

the dresser I did for my boys' room. It was a fairly simple project that stands out. It took me a little while I get the hang of using Mod Podge. I said I was going to do a smaller project at first and ended up just going for it.

Sorry it's taken me so long to post this pattern. I was so busy at work with everyone getting their hair done before Superbowl.
