New Looks For Old Treasures ..

Hello my dear friends,

I am working on a few little other things all at once and loving it. I have a list made up for every day for the next two weeks so I don't forget anything but also so I don't over do it neither. That is such a good way to get things done.

Theses past few days I have been giving a few old pieces of mine a new look with a coat of paint.

This chair was a $ 2 buy of mine about 4 years ago and it was perfect for that time since I was in love with the primitive look and style but now the black wasn't for me any more. I was very close to selling it actually...

... until my daughter Ashleigh told me it would be perfect for my creative place as my new work chair. Can you believe it that I never even thought of that once?!
And now it looks like this ...

...  just lovely!

I also worked on this old tacky box ...

...  that I found for 50 cents at a church sale a year or so ago. It was all scruffy and had horrible writing with red and black marker on the lid. Unfortunately I got carried away and didn't take a better picture of it before the paintbrush got to it.

Now it holds all my white wool and yarn.

 I even found a little something to give it a little more character and it fits to a 'T' as my husband would say. Where did I find it?! .. Of course I found on the Graphic Fairy's amazing website which you can find here ...


The only thing I did was enlarge it to the size I needed it to be so it would cover the unsightly part of the lid and it was done. And now ...

... I'm loving it!
 (Ba da ba ba ba!)

But that is not all I have been up to. I have also done some work to some drawers of mine and that is what I am going to share with you tomorrow. So maybe see you here at Todolwen again? ... It would be so nice!

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
