|Best costume I ever made. Blinking lights!|
But nothing prepared me for the glut of crafty goodness and inspiration and wonder that is Pinterest.
I've found so many ideas for foods to make, gifts to create and give, and household improvements to implement. And most of them have turned out wonderfully! (not like these) I have a few more things in the works ... but here's a nice run-through of my recent accomplishments around the house.
|SOOO much better than before.|
|This gives you some idea of the kitchen "before."|
Next is a serious of smaller projects. Some took a weekend, some a few hours, some several days ... I'm proud of the way they turned out, or I wouldn't be sharing them here, obviously. I don't have before-and-after pictures of step-by-step pictures, but if you ask for more info or tips, I'll gladly fill you in.
|OK, so I didn't make this. I bought it on Etsy ... but still a great Pinterest idea.|
|Antique printer's tray purchased on eBay ...|
|Converted to jewelry storage/display|
|Using wasted space for measuring spoons and cups. ||More are on the door of the neighboring cabinet.|
|Tie-dye Mickey Mouse shirt!|
|Remove pictures from frames and spray-paint them all black|
|Frame out an old builder's cheapie mirror without having to take it down from the wall|
Next project due to be finished ... Mod-Podging a world map to multiple Michael's-bought canvases and hanging as a grouping. Pics soon!
