Paint and Decoupage Furniture

I must admit that my family is typically behind the times with technology.

We just got rid of our VCR last year….we don’t even own a DVR…and we just got cable.

There is no Blu-Ray at this house…or surround sound.

We still have a home phone complete with an answering machine with the cutest message you’ve ever heard from our girls.

{They were 4 and 2 when they recorded the message…they are now 15 and 12 and we’ve added another that is now 10.}

But that message is so adorable that we can’t bear to not hear it anymore when the phone rings.

Because we hear it every time the phone rings…because we never answer that phone.

The only phone calls that phone receives are telemarketers and political ads.

We keep that home line for emergencies…and to hear that precious message. 🙂

But even though we are behind the times in most areas of technology…we have enough I-devices that we keep our counter tops full of chargers!

So this old telephone table is the perfect place to charge a few of them and keep them hidden in the process!

A bit of paint and decoupage was all it needed…

How to Make a Cloche

How to Make a Cloche

When we got married 19 years ago, “theme” showers were all the rage.

We had a book shower, ornament shower (December wedding), basket shower, kitchen shower

and while I had my lingerie shower…my husband had his tool shower.

Now my David is probably the greatest husband and father on the planet,

and if you need encouragement or laughter or a speaker for teens or a dishwasher…he’s your guy.

If you need a hammer or socket wrench…you’ll need to come to me.

I’m still using “his” tools from that shower.

And I was so grateful for that wrench set when I was making this project.

Here is how to make a cloche from a cheap thrift store clock.

I am not sure who brought “distressed” furniture into vogue?

I AM sure who has kept it in vogue. . .

Every mother on the planet.

When I was a child, “distressed” was ruined.

It meant another project for my dad…

Trash to Treasure Table

I am a person who sees decorating possibility in everything.

This can be a great trait when you are working on a tight budget.

It allows you to buy things at a bargain that most people overlook.

You can see past the rust,

the dated fabric,

the dirt.

Another fabulous day at the beach.

We stayed ALL day!

Once again I am ending this day exhausted. . .

In a very beach, lazy way!

Here is another quick project that I finished before we got out of town.

Craft Corner for Daisy’s Room

I am almost too tired to write this post for today.

It has been a weekend full of birthday parties, soccer, shopping, time with friends, traveling hubby. . .

I need a few days off to recover from our long weekend!

I had great plans of all I was going to get done this weekend.

I have a list of fall projects a mile long.

Instead, I was home for about 2 hours (Ok, that is an exaggeration, but that is how it seems to me!)

Instead, I will share with you another corner from Daisy’s room.

I am sure that you are tired of hearing about it.

I had planned on saving this for much later.

But, here it is:
