Good Friday Everyone!! Hope you all are having a great day. It is cold, windy and rainy here in Ohio and quite frankly I am worn out with the weather. Cameron is going to spend the night with my in-laws tonight, we have eye appointments in the morning and errands to run tonight. We are eating out tonight at a Mexican restaurant (mmm, yummy) and then off to the grocery store we go, with a trip to Lowe's and the thrift store. Yep, a busy night and weekend planned. I plan on making my fly screen this weekend so I have to pickup a knob at Lowe's.... I can't wait to get that done so it will complete my look of the stove top cover and then I can share that with all of you.
As of right now, this is what I have to share. I finally found some great labels for my little mason jars. They are perfect for my laundry room. A gal from "A Primitive Place" helped me with them and I of course coffee stained my own computer paper. I just told her what I wanted on them and she fixed me up. Don't they look too cute on my little mason jars?
Here is what my shelving unit looks like in my laundry room. I am slowly working on it, but it is progressing in the right direction. I still have alot to do, but here is a sneak peek for you.
This is another transformation from something that I found at the Goodwill store. I am not sure if you all remember it or not, but alot of you thought it was a book-end and it very well could be, but now it is a little shelf that I re-did and I am giving it to my sister for her birthday along with the sugar cone that she specifically requested. It is buttermilk over black with a coat of walnut stain. I painted the star on it to give it a more prim look and I am quite satisfied with it. I think she will like it or at least I hope she does.
I also tried my hand at making soap balls today. It was fun, but definitely a messy project to say the least. I would definitely recommend that you do it without any kids around. Cameron had me doing stuff and I totally forgot about my soap being in my microwave and it made a huge mess after overflowing everywhere. So, I had that mess to clean up along with soap and oats all over my hands. They turned out pretty good, but it was just a messy project!! I rolled them in a spice mixture to give them a more prim look and displayed them in this wooden bowl for the picture however they are now in one of my jars in my new prim bathroom. They look great!!
Well, I am off for tonight. I will hopefully post more later this weekend and hopefully share my fly screen. Wish me luck with that. I am so hoping and praying that it works for me. I am quite anxious and of course I have to make 2......one for me and one for Mom. Yep, a busy weekend indeed, but hopefully a restful one doing the things I enjoy!!
