I still love love love having a home. I've been having so much fun decorating our bare walls. I took a few pictures of some of my recent house projects.
I've seen so many people use chalboard paint, so I thought I'd give it a try. I found some really cheap 5x7 frames, painted them green, added some black stain, and then painted the glass with chalboard paint.
I found some really cheap picture frames for our family pictures and put them all together on my living room wall.
I found these at goodwill and painted them black.
I found this really ugly vase and painted it turquose.
I found this old dresser super cheap, painted it white and replaced the knobs.
This is what it looked like when I was finished. None of it's perfect since I'm really not very crafty, but I had so much fun doing all of it.
After finishing projects for my house, I sort of got addicted to finding cheap stuff and redoing it. I talked to this lady in a store called the Bees Knees. There is a lot of really cute painted furniture and vintage decor. She told me that I could sell a few things in her store. I thought it would just be a few things, but I ended up renting out a whole booth. Wow, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. She wanted me to fill up a booth within a week, so I was a total stress case all week trying to get everything done. I neglected my children, my house, and my husband for the whole week and managed to get some things done. I messed up a lot and had to repaint some of the things I made. Here are a few pictures of the things I finished.
Dry Erase Board
I found this really ugly window mirror and painted it white.
I painted three chalkboard frames and glued them on a strip of burlap.
This dresser was brown before and I repainted it and distressed it. I love how this one turned out.
This is how my booth looked when I finished everything. It's definetely not as cute at the other booths in the store, but I was just happy to be done with it! Now maybe I can get a little sleep :)
