Craft Day!

Today is my day off from work which equals a day of crafting! I recently bought a few items from flea markets and fairs and I decided to start turning them into treasures for the house. I'll post before and after pictures when I'm done.

I thought this basket would be really cute as a table top decoration in the living room. I'm planning on finding some cute decorative balls to put inside of it. For Fall and Thanksgiving, I'll probably fill it with pumpkins, squash, gourds, etc. Then for Christmas I'll put some ornaments in it. I don't think I'm going to paint it or anything, I like the rustic look of it.


This is a piece of decorative metal. I bought it with the intention of using it as a magnetic board for pictures, but I'm kind of liking it as is. I might just hang it up in the kitchen somewhere. Not sure yet.

I got really excited when I found this rocking chair and foot stool at a flea market in Tahlequah for only $25. It looks brand new. I honestly don't know why I felt the need to buy a rocking chair, but I figured it'd be a fun project. I'm going to sand and paint the wood and then find some really cute fabric to cover both the cushions on it. I'm sure someday it will be put to good use.

I also found this chalkboard at the flea market in Tahlequah for $6. I've been looking for something to use as a chalkboard for the kitchen. I think they are really cute and you can use them to write a menu for the week (which mine won't be used for because I don't cook), bible versus, or cute sayings. Obviously, I'm going to paint over what's on it now and somehow make it look cuter.

Last, but not least, I plan on transforming this wine bottle into a fabulous flower vase. I found this idea in another blog and it was so cute. All they used was spray paint, twine, and flowers. How cute and easy? I would give credit where credit is due to the blog that inspired me, but I completely forgot where I saw it....oops!

P.S.- I finished my book "Kasey to the Rescue" and it was AWESOME!!!! Aaron is coming tonight, not sure yet what we are going to do, but I think a fun date night is in the works :)
