I am running late on this post because I didn’t think that I had done much this week. Then I sat down, started looking at all of the other posts and realized something. Duh Gwen, look at the wall right across from your laptop!
This week was a week of finishing, not really shopping. I need one of those once in a while to keep everyone happy in this house.
I turned table sides that Art brought home from the grocery store into wall art. So what was this…..
turned into this….
I sanded off the Kashi labels, stained them, then added a bit of modern flair that matches my living room. I mounted the pieces with large brackets and wire in order to have them stand out a bit from the wall. (Sorry about the photo, I tried this about 50 different ways, with different light sources and this was the best that I got.) The mirror in the middle is the ceiling medallion that I painted last month. Total cost of this wall art? $2.50 and it packs a huge unique punch!
I had my first Freecycle experience this week. I picked up this TV stand, which I don’t need. What I do need is extra seating in my living room and this is going to become a storage ottoman. I can see it, can’t you?
I also finally got the fabric to reupholster my other freebie ottoman. The Waverly fabric was a great Ebay find at $5.99 for 5 1/2 yards!
Now if I can just figure out how to do the upholstery, I will be good to go.
