Drab to Fab Vanity

 I knew I wanted a vanity for one of my girls rooms. I searched high and low for the just the right piece.  I finally found this piece on craiglist for $30.00.

 I knew with a little hard work and a fresh coat of paint, it would work perfectly.

I first cleaned the piece really well and disassembled all the bolts. I then gave it two coats of spray paint!

I LOVE this spray!! It goes on thick and wonderfully!

I also reupholstered the seat fabric.
I simply stapled the fabric to the bottom base of the seat.

I love the transformation of drab pieces to gorgeous pieces!

 I love seeing the before picture right by the after!
Spray paint and craigslist are such wonderful things!

Gold Fever

I can't get enough of the gold trend! I find myself searching for any little trinkets that would look lovely with a new layer of gold spray. 

I found this little glass owl at the DI for  .25. 
Score, right!?
{Don't mind my cell picture for the before. My cell phone should be at the DI. It is ancient.}

THIS.... my new favorite spray paint!!
I did a rough coat! I wanted it to look a bit cracked and weathered.

 Oh lala!!
Now I am off to find something else to splash with gold!

Happy Crafting!

EAT Sign

Seriously my house is so empty. I have so much work to do to feel some of these voids. 
I was so excited about having kitchen cabinets I could decorate above. But I do admit, they are a bit overwhelming to me now.

I knew I wanted a large EAT sign, but couldn't find one simplistic enough for my taste. I found a perfect frame with great structure for $2.00. 

I made a simple 11x14 chalkboard EAT sign.
{Simply right click and "save image as" to use this free printable too. My gift to you!}

I then spray painted the gold frame with this spray paint.

I do love how it turned out. 
Perfect for the empty space above my microwave cabinet!

Happy Crafting,
