Not keeping house

Yesterday I dabbled into craftiness, instead of keeping house. Of course I have 4 loads of laundry I'm currently doing, because of that! I had a fun day though, and here are some pictures of my efforts! Visit the Nesting Place, for other quick design ideas! She's hosting a 10 minute re design party. 

This is the top of Keira's dresser.  I re covered the lamp and made the picture frames yesterday. A while ago, I hung this mirror and added the pink candle in the Pottery Barn vase. Lamp and picture frame re-do's- all for $5! I would actually LOVE to purchase a really nice pink and brown lamp from pottery barn, but its just not what I want to spend the money on! Feel free to put that on your gift list for me, though...ha!

Here's a close up of one of the picture frames. This is Keira and her cousin, Zane, about 2 years ago. I'll probably think the decor is ghetto and not like it in a few months, but I like it for now! Plus, I had all the materials already, so it didnt really cost me anything to change it!  Besides, I'm a woman and its my prerogative to change my mind! 

Isn't this pretty?! I think so
The pink fringe fabric that's on the lamp and picture frames, was on sale at Hobby Lobby for $2/yard. That's all I needed. I purchased some rolls of ribbon at Hobby Lobby; they were on sale too.

This is a paint can for Jessica's shower. I got the inspiration HERE. I love it! I'm going to make one for Easter and place Easter eggs inside. Edwin asked, "for what"? For decor!
The paint can is under $3 at Home Depot. The paper is from Michaels (some are $.50 a sheet and some are $.80 a sheet). The ribbon was from Hobby Lobby. I think its cute for a nursery, to put baby wipes or something like that inside. For now, it will just be used as decor for a baby shower. Jessica, if you want to take it with you after the shower, it will cost you $15. ha
And now I must do Laundry.

  2. Wow you had a crafty day! Those paint cans are my favorite and very cute. They would be great for Easter gifts. I noticed a bookshelf in the background shaped like a house. Where did that come from?
