Navy Lamp

I decided to start out slow.  I picked one of the brass lamps to revamp.  It was quick and easy.  A good wipe down and a can of Navy paint.  This will in my guest bedroom.  It matches the bedding;)  I  am waiting to paint the other lamp.  I still need to decide on colors for my family room.  Any suggestions???  I am thinking maybe greens or gray and red.  What do you think?  1 down 11 more to go!!!

Shopping bag Bibs

I have had several friends having babies.  This is a favorite of mine to make and give.  I use the reusable shopping bags.  They wipe down easy and don't fray on the edges.  I add a pocket and a little bling.

I am in 2 card groups.  I love making cards.  It's instant gratification, for me.  Simple quick and I accomplish something!  Here is what I have been working on for our upcoming swap.

 My first group is doing anything cards.  I found the hot balloon free printable on pinterest.  I knew I wanted to use it.

My second group is doing kid birthday.  I am hosting.  The top card is a shaker card, with sand inside.  This will be our make n take.  The tutu card is my swap.

Kitchen light fixture makeover

I have been wanting to makeover a fun Chandelier.  I actually bought 4 different chandeliers, before I found the perfect one.  After I got my new turquoise Chandelier up.  I decided my pendant lights looked out of place.  The very next weekend I found pendant lights at a garage sale.  It was meant to be.

Kitchen before
 Pendant lights $10 and covers were $4 found both at garage sales
 The big brass Chandy $8

 New Kitchen lighting $36 total with paint

"Garage sale Glam" Lazy Susan

If you know me at all.  I am an avid garage sale girl.  90 percent of my decor and clothing, comes from garage sale's.  I found this lazy susan new in the box.  That's right $4.  Then went to lowes, and found this gallon of paint in the mis-tints for $5.  Found out at check out it had a $5 rebate. So it was actually FREE.  Stay tuned for more of my constant kitchen makeover.
