Spring is such a wonderful time of the year. The flowers are a bloomin, the birds are chirping and the stores are all full of lots of fun items that we can craft with. I spotted these cute wooden gift bags at Michael's the other day and was immediately smitten!
Spring is also the time for gift giving to friends.
And while we are on the subject of gifts, Mother's Day is almost here.
Today I'm sharing my idea for gift giving with pretty wooden gift bags.
Sometimes good things come to those when they least expect it. I had been wanting to make a wall art decoration piece for ages but had never found anything that was right. Until the day I parked somewhere to wait for my dad and lo and behold...this!
I'm going to share how I made shutter art with a stencil the wrong way so that you can do it the right way!
You can never have enough mirrors, right? That's exactly what I thought when I spotted this on the curb last fall. Today I am sharing how to makeover a curbside mirror find the lazy way.
There is nothing like the cool weather of fall to get me motivated to paint everything in sight. And this lamp base was no exception. I had saved it from the garage sale we had months ago but knew it would need a makeover if it was to stay in my house. I did not like that faux gold at all! Today I'm going to show you how to paint a lamp base to look like stone.
Here I am another week gone by that I am not working on the bedroom furniture. Instead this week I am going to share a quick makeover that I had wanted to do on this little side table. Please ignore the mess in the photo. Tatou, our puppy thinks the living room is his playground.
I tried to sell this table at the garage sale we had last month but no luck. So instead of donating it I decided to give this old table a new look with stencils.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle 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 and New York.
