Projects, thrift finds, and goings on…

I haven’t posted anything in a while, but I have been busy with projects. We got our granite countertops in our kitchen and master bathroom. It is sooo nice having a working kitchen. I’ll have to post the pictures of the kitchen in a different post because I forgot that I didn’t have pictures of it after we put the faucet in on my computer.

But, I LOVE my bathroom!

IMG_4092I don’t love the handfuls of dirt taken out of my plant and sprinkled all over the toilet…IMG_4096  I know it’s better to not have these things sitting on your counter, but since we don’t have much drawer space, we have to. I love this rusted mason jar top I found in the garage.IMG_4094 IMG_4095My husband got me this plant for Valentines Day, and they shells were in his collection that I didn’t want to keep taking up space in the garage.


I painted this table that I bought off craigslist for 25 bucks. While peeling, scraping, and sanding the multiple layers of green paint off I started to think I paid too much.


But, I do love the way it turned out. I needed some color in my all neutral house.


I snagged this little candle holder thing from my sisters house before it was taken to the dump and it had been sitting in my garage. I think it looks cute with the little nest in it. The eggs were  super small plastic eggs from last Easter. Then just sat it on the little candle holder thingy I got last year from the Salvation Army.

 IMG_4089 My husband doesn’t really like this. He thinks it should be hanging on the wall, but I didn’t paint enough on the glass for that. Just one egg.


I think its kinda cute. For now at least.



I made some lumpy pillows.


  Did a freezer paper stencil for the first time.IMG_4098


The were all made with old pillowcases and a bed skirt with scraps of fabric I had laying around.

IMG_4102 I repainted this old magazine rack my Grandma gave me.


And some frames from the Dollar Tree.


My husband watched the kids while I spent my Easter money at the thrift store. IMG_4105

I found this cute frame for my daughters room.

And this cute dress form jewelry holder. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it, but it matches her room.


I also found this. I’m not sure what it is/was, but I already turned it into something cute for our kitchen!


While “Menu” might not necessarily apply, it’s for pinning our recipes to while my husband and I cook. We print a lot off the computer and they get all splattered on and yucky.


I love the black design that was already painted on there!


Hand painted the “Menu”. I sure wish I had a Cricut machine!!!

My baby girl has been sick the past week, so when she was napping I found the time to do projects, just not post them. Sooo…. There you go! All caught up. Almost. There are a few things missing here and there.

Catching Leprechauns…

I haven’t done any decorating for St. Patrick's day. It’s too short a time period for me to spend my time getting into it. But, today my son and I decided we were going to build a leprechaun trap.

We just used an old Nesquik container, some dirt mixed with glue, sticks, rocks, some moss from the Dollar Tree, and some other things I had laying around the house for the gold.

IMG_3941IMG_3942IMG_3943IMG_3945    IMG_3944 The lid has a hole cut in it so the little guy will fall in. I think it’s so cute! Christopher kept showing me what was going to happen with a little gold fuzzy. Climbing up the ladder, doodoodoo, opps he fell in, and would drop the gold in. So our little pot has less gold in it than it started with.

I remember in Kindergarten, the teacher put green footprints all over our tables. It was the neatest thing.

Eddie Cap

I wanted a hat to match my sons Easter pants. I found this tutorial from Mushroom Villagers and it was just what I was looking for. I was using the extra fabric from the jacket that I used for the pants so I altered some of the measurements, crossing my fingers hoping it would still turn out right.

I LOVE it.

(Sorry the pictures are a little wonky. I still haven’t quite got the hang of it yet.) Tons of pictures!

I’m sad that his pants probably won’t fit him by Easter. His hat will for sure though!
