Any way I thought I would give you guys a look at some of the little projects I have been working on. I got really into finding things at Thrift stores and spray painting them (generally satin white). Here are a few of these items:
This feathered (ceramic) friend here got a nice coat (or 3) of satin white paint. Much fresher looking!
It all started off with the vase on the left. I love white ceramic pieces in stores and on Etsy but I just couldn't afford to build a collection of things. These started off blue crackle, orange, and grey. I think they look quite good and well composed together!
This little owl was much like the sparrow above.
The next leg of my crafting was items for my baby girls room. This dresser I got used. It was solid Cherry Wood with drawer interiors of oak. The thing STANK of cigarette smoke and was covered in nicotine. Many washings with TSP and priming with special primer (plus a lot of airing out) finally got rid of it.
This is a decorative piece I have made for her wall out of paper. There is an E on it, for Evelyn which will be her name and then a bird on the bottom which is a small motif I am kinda using in her room. This wreath I made following the instruction from Paper Bag Wreath from my last post, only I used pastel bond paper.
Finally this is the mobile I have made for her room. The pictures are not very good, I am going to try and take more pictures... sometime. I really really love it. I used the basic instructions from Martha Stewart's Bird Mobile only I used a natural branch that I power washed the bark off of and then attached the birds which were made in several shades of pink, some white and a green with floss.
As long as the internet stays still I will be back on board for more frequent posts. If you have any suggestion for future posts or have anything you would like to see please feel free to email me at email@example.com
