It's Friday. I love Fridays because it means I have the whole weekend with help- my husband! YAY! Nothing is better than that.
To kick off my weekend I couldn't resist sharing things that gave me warm fuzzies and put a smile on my tired face because the more money in my pocket, the more I can spend later :)
One of my favorite blogs, Our Suburban Cottage, mentioned this store called RESTORE. I had to check it out. Luckily my mother in law took the kids for an afternoon or there is no way I was fittin' this thing in my van with 3 little ones.
Among old door knobs, scraps of old tile and hardwood, shutters, windows, and brassy chandeliers (which I LOVE... to spray paint of course), I found this BEAUTIFUL, heavy, solid wood door for $30!!! It is going to be my future headboard (aka: future before and after victim), I can't wait for that project although it may take a while to get there. This darn fireplace project is taking forever! I also can't wait to get back to Restore again and find future before and after victims.
In my bathroom "Recycle Redo" I transformed an old, dated, red vase to a shiny, sparkly black piece of art. I spray painted it with my "oil rubbed bronze" I had leftover from the Mirror project. So the makeover was FREE (that word alone gives me warm fuzzies). I am so excited to see it in the bathroom.... but it does look pretty good sitting right here in my kitchen ...
