My hubby likes pine – I do not. This big hunk of pine is knot something I Pine for – hardy,har ,har….I crack myself up…..
My hubby helped with his bondo skills – the legs had huge broken pieces missing. My hubby applied bondo, let it dry and sanded it down to perfection ! Note- bondo is used on cars – the wood filler just was too slow and my hubby didn’t like it…so he got out his bondo….love it – he too can be creative.
I unscrewed all the hinges and knobs…I used the power screwdriver – so much faster. Then my hubby helped mask it up. He does a way better job than me.
We used Behr glossy black latex paint. My hubby loaded up his paint gun – the kind you use for cars and then taught me how to spray it on ! It was slick and there ain’t no runs on this baby. I have some other large pieces and my hubby said we can do the same to them , Yeah !
Here it is with my little orphan annie chair…I threw some stuff on top to make it a little cozy. I am working on a picture to go above the chair – also from the thrift store, so keep posted ! All the things on top of the cabinet are my thrift store finds too !
I bought the cabinet from Craigslist about a year ago for seventy five bucks. I use it to hold all my photo albums.
Another picture – it is so loverly, I do heart it a bunch !
Getting Framed X five
I bought five 8 1/2 x 11 frames at $1.99 each at various times from the thrift store – some wood, some metal and some fake fake fake !
Got out my hoslter and guns (spray paint guns that is…..)
used my Cricut in 3 different fonts at 5 inches each in black…
Twirler for $ 1.99
I found this twirler and I knew my daughter Megan would love it.
It is the prettiest green. I decided to have a little mini photo shoot…the twirler is a great background. Megan will be a freshman in high school this year. We went this morning and had her hair highlighted for the first time, as a treat ! Great time to take some pics !
I took a whole bunch of photos – we had fun. I am lovin my new camera. For those who ask , it is a Canon Rebel T1i. Still learning and having a blast.
I have many more projects coming up …..so keep tuned !
