Some randon February projects....

I am so sorry it's been so long again. I am definitely ready for Spring and to be able to get outside and paint. Tired of being cooped up!
My first burlap wreath. THINK SPRING! I found the burlap ribbon at Michael's and used a wire form and pipe cleaners to attach it. I also painted the small birdhouse from Michael's.I just love red tulips!

We had some painting time last week and this week. Judy brought this already decoupaged tray. We scraped off the old and went on with the new!

We painted it with Chateau Grey Chalk Paint and then added some pages I tore from a book. I cute the letter and swirls from black cardstock. Then finished with  Mod Podge and some dark wax. Cute now!

This magazine rack was one Evelyn has been working on for a while. It matches the cute coffee table she made for her daughter's dorm room. Love this!

Helen  painted the cute blue shelves with Duck Egg blue and the frames got an update from Gold to Old white. Much improved!
 I made some coasters with tiles from Lowe's, Scrapbook paper and Mod Podge!

Had to share my recent Goodwill Finds. I saw these two shaving kit bags , still in the plastic, never used. There was no price. At check out, 75 cents each.

Just found them on Ebay for $32 each!! Turns out they were by Vera Bradley!! SCORE!!
Baekgaard Flags Red Shaving Kit Travel Bag
I have one more painting project in the works. Here's how it started. A great jewelry box for $10 at Goodwill!

Should be posting finished project soon. This one may be for sale. Planning to get to Flea Market soon for more projects!!
Thanks for reading!
