As we transition to spring, I have some fun projects to share with you. I’m working on a a few wedding projects and some spring fashion ideas. While I get back to my craft table, enjoy the projects in the spotlight this week.
Restyle Relove made a bold decision to paint this sideboard. The original piece was in perfect condition with dark polished wood. Not it’s even more perfect and will be used and loved.
Jewelry Making Journal shows us how to oxidize metal using eggs. Sometimes we want polished untarnished silver jewelry and sometimes an oxidized antique look. What a great tip.
Oh my – how cute is this snowsuit by Sew Can Do? And look at all that snow. Here in Southern California we don’t see snow like that but I would still love an adult sized version of this snow suit!
Rook No. 17 has outdone herself. Absolutely adorable Mini Cupcakes with a toasted coconut nest and a robin’s egg. But wait, the cuteness doesn’t stop there, one of the eggs has hatched.
I love this sweet bird pincushion by Pieced Pastimes. The antique gravy boat is the perfect base for the cushion and little bird.
A unique spin on vanilla pots de crème. Food Babbles added hibiscus tea leaves creating the pretty dusty rose color and hint of hibiscus flavor.
Everyone is amazing me with their furniture transformations lately. Amanda Jane Brown took a wood Craigslist piece and completely change the look with the ever popular Annie Sloan paint.
I can’t get over this pillow from Ashbee Design. First our love for chevron still marches on and this chevron pattern is so well done. The best part – the fabric is upcycled from old jeans.
This nursery by Andrea Arch is so tranquil. The grey striped walls are fantastic and the pops of yellow so bright and cheery.
