Nana Dianne and Bapa Craig came this weekend, and they were able to help me finish up some projects! I had been thinking about putting paneling on our island to lighten it up, but it was a bit pricey over at Lowes. I was at our habitat restore here in town, and I found pieces of the SAME paneling I wanted for $3!!! I got them, and had our friend make some cuts, and Bapa helped me finish it up!
This little guy wanted to be working, too! :) Also, toy hammers are very loud....
Here is the (almost) finished product! I have to put some caulk in some seams, but I'm very happy with it!!! :)
Found an old piece of wood at the restore, too.... put some coat hooks, and there ya go! $2 :)
I was getting ready to put out a bunch of our crud on the street for city wide clean up days, and I saw this long piece of wood that we had on our old queen bed. My head got thinking, and I didn't want to just put a nice piece of wood like that on the trash pile....
Our blinds looked kind of bare, so I thought maybe it could be fun up there? Right Bapa? Daddy? ;)
Bapa got to work on it, and I made it all distressed and old looking. From the pics, it doesn't look as great as it does in person!
It goes with our decor really well! I LOVE IT! :) cost = FREE (bapa bought the screws!)
I wanted to make some shutters for our entry way. Went to the restore again, and for $1.50 I got some fun old white beat up siding. Measured, and had Daddy help me cut it, and there ya go! Made a wreath out of some greenery I had, and bam.... $1.50 :)
Haven't done any work on this one....but figured I haven't posted a pic of miss Winnie in a while!
Sunday was a windy but nice day, and Daddy and Liv went out in the field and flew a kite! Lots of fun! :) Looking forward to nicer weather for sure!
