THE CUTEST ADDITION TO MY KITCHEN!, MY THRIFTSTORE FIND
Hope everyone had a wonderful fourth of July. Well I've been out thrifting with my family and my aunt. We hit about four great thrift stores and fond some really good stuff but this find I am about to share with you is my very favorite. OK try going thrift shopping with people that only see "Junk" they just don't have that vision that could beautify something, so I find this metal piece that looks something like a filing cabinet but it actually slides open from the top . I bought it for 5.00 it was 10 but it just happened to be half off day! When I seen it all kinds of uses were going through my mind ,first kitchen , I could use it as a mini island / snack keeper. Or maybe a place to store my freshly baked goods until I'm ready to disburse my treats accordingly. This would sure work well seeing it's hard to keep them away . Well here she is before her makeover....So I cleaned her up and sanded her really well. Keep in mind everyone agreed that what I was buying was total junk and a waste of money. Ha Ha Ha (they don't know anything) I Laughed! A plus for this piece is that it is strong and has wheels so I good roll it to the dining room decked out with deserts. Also great to roll to the dining table for tea. !
She's looking kinda sick here isn't she?
Once I sanded and gave her a good spray of primer I painted her with the same paint I used on my kitchen cabinets a shade of green that I see many vintage items wearing. Then I hand painted some cherries , I don't know but when I saw this piece I thought of cherries all over it. I empathized the edges with some black paint and last sealed it with a water based sealer. Now Look at her , isn't she beautiful?

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
