Spencer's Antiques Spokane Washington Space 725

I decided to break out the stencils and paintbrushes for this little number last summer.  I really thought it turned out awesome and put it in the shop expecting it to fly out (pun intended)!!  Well, it went over like a lead balloon so I had to pull it out of the shop.  I stuck it in my garage and there it sat for a good part of winter until I decided to give it another shot.  

So, here it is before...

and after...

We will see how it does.

Vintage Old Antique Window Project

Finished the last of my old window projects!  I really like how this turned out and I wish the picture did it justice. I need to run to my local little hardware store and get a pane of glass cut for one of the sections.  I called them and it will only cost me $3.80 (love River Ridge hardware).  

I wasn't ready to start on this project right away because I didn't have legs, turns out I forgot about a little project mishap this fall that involved a table and my butt (see picture below) and yippee, I was ready to make a coffee table!!

Like Mel's Nursery...only cheaper!

While thrift shopping with my mom I found this huge print at the thrift store for .99 and picked it up. It had been laying around for a couple weeks when I had a light bulb moment. I cut it into sections and framed it in this old window. I just love how the yellow in the wood popped when I put the picture in!

While thrifting with my oldest son I ran across an unfinished project and picked it up for very cheap! I added shelves and finished it by turning my other old window into the cabinet door. A little sanding, some paint and voilia!

Local Thrift Shop Find

Found these great old windows the other day and knew they had great potential!! I think I will turn them into tables for the living room...should be a very fun project!

Got the kids to school this morning and decided to hit the closest thrift store this morning before my 10am appointment.

I found this picture tucked away in a bin and thought it was so cute! I almost want to keep it!

Spent the rest of the day working on the design of my little blog which I think turned out pretty cute.

Now...whats for dinner?
