Yesterday was a holiday and I took today off of work, so I’ve had some time to play :)
First I got out the spray paint and modified these two pieces
The tray was painted black and then I added a piece of snake skin like wallpaper
I started searching the house for hard cover books to cover with craft paper and could only find two. I read books and donate them back to the thrift store, the only two I could find were my daughters.
So back to the GW to find some books. I’m not a fan of displaying books just for the sake of display. They have to be something that is actually read, otherwise they go to the bookcase.
I found these three books which appeal to all of us.
The burlap bug has finally bit me and now I’m sorry that I didn’t catch on to it earlier. I’ve had an aversion to it because of it’s odour (it smells musty to me), but the $3.00 roll that I got at a garage sale last weekend, doesn’t smell bad :)
So, I recovered the ottoman/bench and hung it up as drapes.
I even cut out a stencil with my cricut and tried stencilling
I built a frame for the dead tree photo that I took a few weeks ago. My ex-hubby had it put on canvas for me (he’s in the industry, so it didn’t cost me anything). Problem is I can’t decide where to put it.
I’m pretty sure that I’m doing all of these things in order to avoid the back breaking work that awaits me out back; putting in a new patio.
