Today I have a super quick project. Now I know that normally I don't do these but in this case it was necessary.
My sweet daughter, the one of You Tube fame (although in my opinion she is doing everything to stay obscure, like those poor starving artists that will only get recognized later in life). Well she had made this t-shirt years ago.
Oh did I ever tell you the girls had a t-shirt business. The older one was in charge of the finances and the younger Miss You Tube, was the creative genius. She would sit there and painsakingly copy images onto t-shirts. It was a lot, lot of work, and she burned out after a few months of doing it. But it was her first taste of running a business.
Back to the t-shirt. Of course she's all grown up now and she doesn't wear it any more. She wanted to get rid of it. But I, being the proud mama, was not about to let her throw it out! Instead I easily repurposed it into wall art.
The Halloween party is just a week away and I've been working feverishly on my wall unit making sure everything is just right. Oh, I know I had mentioned in my video the other day that I would add reds, but in fact I seem to have stuck to neutrals mostly. Let's take a quick tour and see my Halloween Wall Unit Decor.
I am including a small video towards the end of the post showing all of this and explaining it in more detail.
Last spring... yes. I did just say that? I was looking over my friend Carol's blog, The Red Painted Cottage and she had a very fun post where she visited Magnolia Market. The one owned by Joanna and Chip Gaines, the hosts of The Fixer Upper.
As I was looking through her lovely tour my eye spotted something near the window. It was a decoration made from egg cartons.
Well you know the hoarder in me just jumped for joy! Finally I had found something useless to repurpose! And so began my adventure to collect as many egg cartons as I could in order to make this project which you are about to see. Today I am going to show you how make easy fall flowers using egg cartons.
If you follow me at all, you have seen my attempts with Paper Rolls made into hearts and other strange things.
The other day the hubby made a barrier door for the irrigation at the farm. It basically looks like a giant picture frame. But, he came home and told me it did not fit properly. I've been wanting to make some sort of wall art for a while and when he told me the bad news (for him) I was ecstatic at the thought of inheriting this big old frame to make Seaside Art. After all what sort of a home is this that is near the beach but has no Seaside Art? Well as luck would have it, he came up with a solution and was able to save his door.
Which left me with nothing!
No Frame, no Seaside Art from a hidden treasure in the dresser.
Until I spotted this piece of plywood in a corner.
Την άλλη μέρα ο σύζυγος έκανε ένα φράγμα για την άρδευση στο αγρόκτημα. Μοιάζει ουσιαστικά με μια γιγάντια κορνίζα. Όμως, ήρθε σπίτι και μου είπε ότι δεν εφαρμόζει σωστά. Θέλησα να κάνω κάποιο είδος τέχνης για τον τοίχο και όταν μου είπε τα άσχημα νέα (για αυτόν) ενθουσιάστηκα με τη σκέψη ότι θα κληρονομήσω αυτή τη μεγάλη κορνιζα για να κάνω παραθαλάσσια Τέχνη. Μα τι είδους σπίτι είναι αυτό που είναι κοντά στην παραλία, αλλά δεν έχει καμία παραθαλάσσια τέχνη; Οπως το'φερε η τύχη, βρήκε μια λύση και έσωσε την πόρτα του.
Όπου με άφησε με τίποτα!
Ούτε Κορνίζα, ούτε παραθαλάσσια τέχνη από έναν κρυμμένο θησαυρό στο συρτάρι.
Μέχρι που εντόπισα αυτό το κομμάτι κοντραπλακέ σε μια γωνιά.
I recently finished my fireplace makeover and it turned out much better than I expected. But as you may know, one project brings about another. Case in point that ugly frame next to my bee-you-tee-full fireplace. But this is a story about a girl...and a surprise.
Πρόσφατα τελείωσα την ανακαίνιση του τζακιού μου και αποδείχθηκε πολύ καλύτερο απ 'ότι περίμενα. Αλλά, όπως ίσως γνωρίζετε, ένα έργο φέρνει άλλο. Παραδείγματος χάριν η άσχημη κορνίζα δίπλα στο ομορφότατο μου τζάκι. Αλλά αυτή είναι μια ιστορία για ένα κορίτσι ... και μια έκπληξη
I'm Mary and I live in beautiful Greece where I like to repurpose and upcycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece.
