Cabinets 2012

Moving to a smaller place, need to sell to cabinets I have no use for. Check out my ad on Craig's List for dimension. The smaller green cabinet is made out of 2 crates with 4 drawers (old) and 4 shelves! I use it in the bathroom but can be used really anywhere! It is very heavy and good shape! I am asking $55.00. Also, I have this country cabinet that is great for small places or narrow areas, like hallways or bathrooms, it has a light mustard color with shelves on top and bottom. The back is made from bead back board, including dental molding and plate grooves on top two shelves for display. Text me at 440 813 0527 if interested.

More pumpkin makeovers

Again ...thinking....I seem to do a lot of that lately, I have these orange pumpkins that seem to have lost their charm! What can I do to change that? Decoupaging would be kind of tough unless I cut material into strips and glue one at a time around the pumpkins. I do not know if I have the patience or talent to be that creative so the next best thing..PAINT THEM! I can do that! Voila! They look pretty good, now I might stencil around them in contrasting colors but I have to see what I can come up with. If I decide to do that, I will be posting more pictures..I have to do some more thinking about that....

Pumpkins redo

Now that winter is here and the garage sales have ended for the season, I like to keep busy doing projects. I was looking through my country magazines and found in the Country Living Magazine an article on decoupaging pumpkins! I thought what a neat idea so I went and bought my Mod Podge and began...well, it is not as easy as it looks! I got this pumpkin pillow on a whim and just hated it! I tried selling it, I tried giving it away but nobody would bite so I thought what could I do with it??? I played around with ideas for a couple of days but because of its shape it would be hard to decoupage it so I decided to paint it a black color and decoupage black checked pumpkins on it (the pumpkins covered up the marks from where I tore the felt eyes and mouth off)it sure was a big improvement! So see if there is something you wish you would not have ever bought, think about what you can do to change it!
