I am so happy with the sunny days we are having! It is amazing how spring makes us look at things in an entirely new way. Yesterday I walked around outside and brought in a black and rusty plant stand and added a plant. I placed it by the front door along with the old screen door I purchased last week.
I didn't do alot to the screen door...sanded the edges and put some burlap and cork on the back but I decided to leave the screen on so it does not show.It was not my intent but I am leaving it for now. I think the door will be a work in progress and will evolve as I develop other ideas. I thought about putting some small crosses on it or some hooks but you know that feeling you get when you have an idea but something says no just wait. Well I am there so for now it is in the entrance. Do you have any ideas?
Here are a couple of items I picked up this week. A little sugar bowl and a birdcage. Aren't they cute?
I am going to tease you a bit today. Remember the 1/2 table and chair I bought the other day? I painted it. On the table I used Mrs. Mustard Seed's glaze mix with the Espresso beans paint and it came out great. This picture just shows he base paint. Here is a picture.
I am saving a better picture for another day. I also found a top to an old small china cabinet that was the right size I thought I would sit it on the table/desk but it took up too much space. I decided to hang it over the table to put my books, pencils, staples and some pretty items. I am still staging it and thinking of lining it with some scrapbook paper to lighten up the inside.
Oh well....I will let you in on the finished product but I don't have the cabinet saged ye so I will updae that later.
Be sure to invite your friends over to my blog. I am new to this but I hope you will like some of my ideas.
