The weekend hasn’t even started yet and I completed two projects!  Off to a great start! 


Project #1.  I bought this little green sweater last weekend for $6.  It has a great vintage feel, but I wasn’t loving the gold buttons.  I stopped by the craft store this afternoon and picked up a cheap button making kit.  000_23671

Ta-da!  30 minutes later I have custom buttons and a one-of-a-kind sweater!  Can’t wait to wear it with a jean skirt this spring.  I wonder what else I can make new buttons for…  (Tony better watch his closet or he may go to work with some shabby chic touches.  Sewn on with love of course!)





Project #2.  I found this old bathroom cabinet at my parents and I removed the mirror and hung the cabinet in my kitchen as a spice cupboard.  For years I’ve had this plain mirror just hanging around.  (I could never throw something out that may be a future project.)  I finally got around to making my vision for the mirror come to life.  I raided the garage for some old wood, threw on the ear protection and put the circular saw to work.  Nailed a frame together, painted it white, and decoupaged some fabric onto it.  I had little strips of fabric left from a quilt, so I sewed them all together in a long strip to wrap around the wooded frame.  I was too lazy to buy decoupage so I made my own mix up–about 1/2 glue, 1/2 water.  000_2360It came out rather cute and I am so happy to have given the mirror a fresh identity. 

Stay tuned for the rest of this weekend’s makings!
