Card Making

I used to make cards a lot but, having stamps, ink, and scissors out with little ones around was a bit stressful so today while they were at school I got out some old supplies.


I would like to try to this more and have some available in my shop. People still buy cards? Do you still buy them?

Old Ironing Board Re purpose

My aunt was getting rid of this old ironing board so I took it off her hands. I didn't know what it's purpose was to be when I got it but when we rearranged the furniture and needed a couch table that be come the purpose. A little sanding and painting later it looks like it belongs.





This projected was rolled on using a small foam roller and is the same color paint as the dining room wall and the desk.

Reading Corner Rearranged

The reading corner got rearranged I think I like this arrangement better. What do you think?


When I originally rearranged the kids' little table was where the chair is. I intended it to be a little craft table. They quickly decided they wanted their table back in their play area in the garage and so the chair went there. They still craft at the dining room table, sigh probably better it is off the carpet anyway and it needed a cute table instead of a plastic folding one that while very sturdy and practical just doesn't really fit the decor.

Desk Makeover

I am finally able to post photos to my blog again sorry for the delay in this post. This desk was a $10 Facebook find in need of a makeover. I painted it using Vaseline, yeah the Vaseline keeps the paint from sticking to the desk so minimal sanding is needed. So, first the prep stuff removing the drawers and nobs, then I randomly lightly smeared Vaseline over the desk a little heavier on the edges and corners. I then used a small foam roller brush to paint let dry and re-coat let dry use very fine sand paper and lightly sand to get the paint off the places the Vaseline was applied. I then lightly went over with a thin layer paint to de-shine the the wood that was showing. I love how this turned out the only down side is because of the Vaseline the final coat takes a long time to completely dry. Sorry I forgot to take in the process pictures.
