As most of my current readers and friends know, I love home projects!! So, I thought I would share a few things I have done around my house in the past month or so:
Our first task at hand was right after the Christmas/Birthday
My second project was a new TV cabinet. In case you haven't noticed I am a HUGE copycat. I see things I like and, if I can, recreate it :) So, the inspiration for this was this cabinet found at my obsession, Ballard Designs.
I got a new antique one for Christmas from my mommy, so I needed to re-purpose my lowboy. And, we needed a new TV cabinet, so voila! I sanded and painted it first. Then I sanded/distressed the edges and used a furniture stain pin to darken the edges. Then I glazed the whole thing using a brown glaze, and changed the hardware. I wish the pictures were better, because it really does look nice!

My third project was this wall art. I saw this in a home boutique in Columbia for $340. She had it displayed as an above mantel display as well, and I loved, LOVED it. So...my wheels started turning and off to Hobby Lobby I went. I bought two canvases and painted them. Then I did some distressed letters in photoshop and printed them out and cut them. Then I Mod Podged all the letters onto the canvases and let dry. I think it looks pretty good!
