Crafty Fun

Oh my!  I went to several garage sales this morning, and I found several really nice larger frames for a buck a piece, a cute basket for in my bedroom (not sure what I am going to put in it yet!), and an outdoor-decor-pale-flower pot thing (I'll show you, it's hard to explain).  Then, I went to buy my supplies for my key holder/sign, and I was off to work (okay, more like off to fun!).

Frame converted into Magnetic White Board

I spray painted this frame white, put a yellow stationary paper in it, and wrote "To-Do" in sharpie on the glass.  I used a hot glue gun to add some magnets and "Voila!"  I like it--especially the way the frame's curves mirror those in my cabinets.  Sorry for the graininess... these photos were taken with my camera phone.

Outdoor-decor-pale-flower-pot thing

I want to spray paint this, put fake plants in it and hang it by my front door... all in time...

The basket for my bedroom
Any ideas on what I should put in this?  I don't know, but I want to put it on top of my dresser (there isn't anything on it right now).

Finally, the Key Holder
So, I did this just exactly as I planned and described yesterday.  I traced the name on in pencil and then filled it in with a sharpie rather than painting.  I am not skilled enough with a paintbrush to stay in those kind of linesI used this "Home" sign that I received as a gift several years ago for the inspiration and the color scheme.
Okay, that's all for Saturday.  Hope you have a good weekend.

  2. Thanks, Erin! I was really happy with how it turned out!

  3. An idea for the basket for you bedroom.. Fill it partially with rocks (probably the kind you find in the craft section or at a pet store to decorate tanks) and then put 3 candles lined in a row (I am picturing wide round ones, that tie in the color scheme of the basket).
