Halloween Gift Bags

My son receives weekly allergy shots.  The ladies who work in the office are the best!  I have never had a staff treat my kid so well, that they would want to come in weekly for shots.  They spoil my son with attention every week.  I put together these gift bags.  They have a soda, Out of treats sign, and a bugs and kisses jar.  It was an unexpected surprise for them.  It pays to be nice and go the extra mile :)

I wish I would have taken pictures of the tags.  I took 2 old spaghetti jars.  Made 5 vintage halloween tags and placed them inside.  I dressed up the lids with paper and ribbons.

Witch Shoe

I have been making these paper witch shoes for years.  They are a fun gift to give.  You can google and find a printable template.  They are a little time consuming.  But worth it!

60's style vintage Chair re-vamp!

This Chair was given to me by my mother in law.  It use to sit in the family room of their lake house.  I loved the fabric that was on the chair.  My original plan was to only refinish  and paint the wood.  Once I got the chair home,  I noticed how stained and worn the fabric was.  I also no longer had space for it in the spot I had originally planned.  I changed my mind and decided to put it in my little girls room.  I just had to make it extra Girly.

Retro TV floor cabinet turned into shelf/ entry table

For starters this thing was a beast!  I saw this idea on Pinterest a while back.  I liked the one I saw.  I thought where would I ever find an old TV cabinet?  About 2 weeks later one fell into my lap.  My dad was cleaning out his rental house.  Guess what was left behind!  At first I said NO!  Then 2 days later, I called him.  He still had it.  He brought it on over.  I thought my husband was going to kill me.  He actually thought it was a cool idea.  Which was good! Because this took a lot of man hours and tons of his help.

First he pulled apart the TV and insides.

 Then I puttied and sanded and sanded. We chopped about 7 inches off the back. My husband built a shelf and attached it in the middle.
 About 8 coats of paint later.  It looked like this.
 At this point. I decided I was going for more of a vintage look.  So, I distressed the whole thing.
 Here is the before
 This is how it turned out!  I love it.  
But, it was a ton of work!
Total cost was $20 in paint
you can't beat that

5 projects down!  Pretty sure I won't make my goal:(  I am feeling very accomplished and motivated!
Hoping to recover another chair this weekend.

Dead and Breakfast

Halloween is in full swing!!!  I love Halloween, it is my favorite holiday.   I have been constantly making crafts over the last few weeks.  I wanted to do a count down with a new craft, for 31 days.  Well, I'm a few days late for that.  So lets start with a 28 day count down!

Today's project My Dead and Breakfast sign to hang on my post.  My BFF cut the fun shape out for us.  I made the templates and painted them.  This project can be found on BHG website.  I love how it turned out.  Little black crows and all!
