Happy Tuesday!!!

First off.....I'd like to send out a prayer to all those on the east coast of Canada and US to keep safe during Hurricane Sandy!!!!

Today I just have a short little blip.  A before and after picture of a little sign I upcycled.  I'm having lots of fun on some little projects I'm working on.

BEFORE:  Cute....but not very shabby or chic!

AFTER:  Much more shabby chic.

I have a few more of these signs that I will be transforming!

Enjoy your day.  And keep safe.

Hello Everyone

I have been very busy moving things to my new temporary home.  My friend and one of my consignors, Lorraine, has gone to California for 5 months and I get to live in her very SHABBY CHIC home.  It is amazing!!!  I will be posting picture later on.  But today I want to show you a box that I upcycled.  It is a cardboard band box.  It had a company logo on the top (sorry I forgot to take a before picture).

I gave it a few coats of Crisp Linen paint.  When the paint was dry, I rubbed the box with some "Distress Ink" in the color vintage photo.

The finished product.  I decoupaged some script paper, then glued on some lace, flowers and buttons.  Decoupaged a picture of a cute little girls.  I love the way it turned out. Ready for some little treasures.

Well as promised....I'm posting the finished magnetic memo board I made for Leola.  I made 4 all together.  The one below has vintage lace trim on the bottom (because I made the first picture too short...oops).  The rest are just plain.  And they all have 3 vintage buttons made into magnets.

Hope you all have a great weekend.
Until next time

Happy Thursday!

Do you ever have one of those days when you want to do 100 things, but you run around so disorganised that you don't get anything accomplished?  Well I am having one of those days.  I've been looking at blogs and getting so inspired to create, but can't seem to get very far today.  I did finish up a few little projects....a cute little shelf and some old vintage shoe brushes.  Graphics are from graphicsfairy.blogspot.ca

My friend Leola from leolasstudio.blogspot.ca asked me to make some magnet boards for her.....so that is another project I'm working on.  I start with a plain metal board.
Then I decoupage a picture that I've printed from my printer.  It is one of Leola's shop.  I love the picture.  I will share the finished project with you tomorrow.

Here is one that I did for Halloween with a picture of 2 black cats.  The magnets are black glitter!  Love sparkle!

Well I better get back to work if I want to get these done for tomorrow.

Can you believe it's October already!!!!  I've been busy working on projects at the shop.  I've had this old wooden blue tool chest for a while now and it hasn't sold.....sooooooo.....I thought I'd give it a make over.

I already started the makeover when I remembered to take a "before" picture.

 I gave it a few coats of "Crisp Linen".  And then traced a graphic I got from graphicsfairy.blogspot.ca and filled it in with a Sharpie permanent marker.

The finished project.  I like it so much more now.  Wouldn't it look wonderful filled with fall foliage and some little pumpkins!

Enjoy the day
