I just wanted to join in on Met Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch and Transformation Thursday at The Shabby Chic Cottage. I am always so inspired by everything that everyone comes up with. Last Saturday was by far the most amazing garage sale Saturday EVER! It all started Friday afternoon, actually. I went to a few sales and saw this cake plate for 50 cents. I wanted it, but I was in a hurry, and didn't get it...but I thought about it all evening and regretted not grabbing it up! The next morning I went back by there and it was still there! It was meant for me! :o) I went to a church sale and bought several decorative urns/pedestal things for 10 cents each! Amazing...I hatched a plan to make one of the beautiful serving plates that I've seen around! Here is the process...
Two separate pieces...destined to be together!
I pulled his little feet off with pliars.
I used Gorilla Glue to glue them together and...
are you ready?
Painted the whole thing RED!
(Please pardon the terrible photos, I dropped my camera and have been using an old lens...doesn't work too well!)
Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you will grab a cup of coffee or a glass of iced tea and stay a while! I started this little blog in 2005 and am amazed sometimes to look back and see God's hand, his blessings and his mercy in the course of these last 11 years! He has truly blessed our family beyond measure! My husband Kris and I have been married for 18 years and we have three amazing kiddos, Katie, Asher, and Claire! I enjoy homemaking, crafting, trying new recipes, and mostly just being a "mama" all while on a super tight budget! Please feel free to browse through our archives! I hope you'll leave with a new idea or just a bit of joy! Thanks again for visiting!
