Picked up a chair at the Salvation Army on Memorial Day weekend. Everything was half off so you just know I had to buy something.
I had never done a piece of furniture before, so this was my first. I wanted something easy so I went with a basic sturdy chair.
This is the before
And this is the after
I put on a few coats of Oil Rubbed Bronze and redid the cushion.
Nothing major, but it turned out cute.

So I read somewhere that you can make pillows out of cloth napkins. I ran to Ocean State Job Lot and got some really cheap. $2.00 for 4. I snatched up 8 napkins.
Super easy to make. Very basic sewing (which is a good thing, because thats all I really know).

So I got this idea from A Diamond In The Stuff. (Pardon my crappy pictures)
I fell in love with it the second I saw it. I was determined to make this. So I did. I actually did all four seasons.

Ive been scouring the local Goodwill for weeks looking for a cheese dome.Two months ago if I had come across one of these babys I would have walked right by it. But ever since I saw Allison Hepworths over at House Of Hepworths, ive kept my eyes peeled! This is hers by the way. I luff her. Allison if your reading this *wave*.... Ok so this is mine.
I haven't found anything to put in it yet though.
So I picked a flower off the tree outside for picture purposes.
Ok, ok, here it is:
Its simply made by gluing a larger wood candle stick to the bottom of a cheese dome.
If I had remembered to take the "Before" picture, you would be able to see that. But hey, thats par for the course...

So I have finally finished up a few projects that i've been working on! So without further ado.....
I present you this! My sexy craft cart (insert 'sexy whistle' here)
I picked up this baby for $4 at a tag sale. She wasn't always so cute though. I figure I can use this in my new craft room (If I ever sell my condo), it can easily be pulled up to my workspace.
