~* A New Cupboard *~

I found this great little black cupboard at Wal-mart last year for $10.00 in the craft section of the store. Some of the edges are sanded and there is a little bit of red showing through. It has three shelves and two little drawers. I'm going to use it for a spice cupboard.

I found these great Watkins spices at Wal-mart. Most of them are priced under $3.00. They are tin, too, which makes them perfect for my cupboard.
Of course, as you can see by the top picture I only have one spice. I wanted to make sure they were the right size. I can't wait to fill it up! Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.

~* House Number Sign *~

I saw a house number sign in one of my older issues of Country Sampler and I really liked it. I decided to make one on my own. I bought the board in the craft section of Wal-mart, purchased two stars and wooden numbers. I painted the board barn red, added weathering medium, painted yellow on top for a crackled finish. The stars were already the color I wanted them. I painted the numbers black and distressed them and then added everything to the board. I love how it turned out!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look...I hope you'll come back again soon!

~* Night Stand Reveal *~

The night stand for my 15 year old dd is now done! She absolutely loves the Shabby Chic style and had found a night stand in PB Teen, but I wasn't about to pay around $200.00 for one. Here's how my $8.00 yard sale find turned out. With the paint I have a total of $9.50!


A peak inside the drawer and a new clock for the night stand.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend.

~*Remember This?*~

I bought this table dirt cheap last summer and never did anything with it. My dd needed a night stand and so I decided to paint it for her room...stay tuned for the after...below is the before!

Thanks again for stopping in for a visit!
I hope you'll come back in a few days to see the results of my little painting project...it's almost completed!

~* Happy Belated July 4th *~

Dear blogging friends...I cannot believe how long it has been since I posted anything. I don't know where the time has gone and I do apologize for not being around as much.
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
I hope all of you had a wonderful 4th. We had some friends over to watch fireworks. We live on a hill and have a wonderful view of some local fireworks (Idlewild Park and Rolling Rock Country Club). My dear friend Josie brought me this sweet flag box that I just love! Thank you so much Josie!
We recently changed our front porch furniture. Our other furniture was nice, but was too small for the size of the porch. We got this furniture at Home Depot and I just love it...wish all of you could come over and enjoy it with me...I can see us sitting there enjoying lemonade, cookies and chatting about our families and our recent yard sale/thrifting finds.

Thanks so much for the comments that were left for me on my last post...I appreciate each and every one of you!
