My fancy message boards

Image
Made my own push pins with polished stones and buttons. Very easy, just a dab of liquid nails and let dry. I'v done several different versions of these inspiration boards. More to come.

That is a leather key pouch with old keys dangling in the center frame. I'll have to take a few more pic's then post again.



Pretty Upcycled Jars

Image
Instead of heading to the recycling bin, these jars were given a second chance and a new look for cute storage jars Fuzzy pencil holders anyone?
Pretty paper and thrift store buttons and voila!




Cabinets... Sharin the love...

Image
Cool Jelly cupboard just need a little something on the doors and an inside paint job, unpictured of bright red. I put an art poster on the doors. An asian design. Quite beautiful actually even though it is a rainy scene.



This is not the true befor picture.. But it is close to what it did look like before.



After... Clock cabinet made into a medicine chest or jewelry case. Those are hair brushes and toothpaste inside. Probably should have taken out to photograph... Oh well.






French inspired desk redesign

Image
How sorry this very solid maple desk was. Fugly contact paper and knocked up finish. But, viola!!! OOHH LA LA look at me now!! White and creams and black give this little lady a ver classy look.














Desk and country cabinet set

Image
This gal was of course brown when I found her. The cabinet was a mirrored bathroom shelf. Both got a cool denim look paint job. The desk has pretty brown toned pattern on top and on the drawers. She is such an adorable desk set now.














Dingy Desk Made into Lovely Conversation Piece

Image
This was a sad little thrift store find. Used some bright coordinating colored papers and a paint job to give this a one of a kind look. I think she has an Indian/Asian flair and is quite gorgeous. My pics really don't do this one justice.
