About Me

My photo
God does have a sense of humor, after years of infertility, we adopted 2 beautiful babies, I later had the "surprise baby"! In the very spare time I have, I love to decorate, paint, and make all kinds of things. I do repurpose old furniture and custom paint furniture for clients. I work with all types of vintage items. I love to make our house a home. I like to see how others do it and share what I do also. Contact me at if you are interested in any products I have posted or if you are local to Atlanta and want a furniture face lift! Love your old junk again!

More Baby!

OK, I am done with my little niece's star and shelf for her nursery. I will be painting on some furniture for her later, but I got excited and did some decorative pieces for her. You saw the metal star I decoupaged and now here is the shelf. This is going on a long dresser we found, that will also be the changing table. This shelf can hold diapers, towels, and other baby items. We are going for a vintage, boho, shabby look.
I think this thing was in a store for commercial display, or even looks like shelves, you see at the public library in the kid's section..... Anyhoo, it was 11.00!!! That's right, 11.00! WHY 11.00? Weird. random price..but Hey, We will take it!! Here it is! Enjoy! Love! Happy Sunday!

I am bad about taking the before pic, I had already started spraying this thing
when I pulled the camera out! It was a bad, very yellow, shiny wood....

You can see a little yellow back here. I sprayed it an aqua blue, then dry brushed it with home-made
chalk paint in a cream color, then distressed a little...

Now, this is left over paper from the star, so I just laid it out
in a random way, Not perfect, just how I thought ts should lay

another view, then I took it off, painted on the modge podge
and laid it back down...

keeping it similar to the star....

let it dry between coats of modge podge, I use matte finish...

some lil mason jars for baby products!

It is a duck puppet wash cloth....stuff like that cracks me up....

Here ya go, little baby girl!!!

I am headed out this evening, for a night off from the kids! I am going with my girlfriends, to celebrate my b-day! For, tomorrow, I shall be 43....which according to Oprah, is really 33!!! ;)
