A Few Projects

I thought I would share a few projects today. I have been so busy and seriously slacking on blog duty!!
First I will show you paint before and afters. My daughter thought I was insane for buying this little step ladder. It was only $1.00.

 Here is the after. I think it's an adorable display piece now. I'm thinking of adding a couple of shelves for display.

The sewing drawer in the background had some great detail. It's a repro so I didn't feel guilty about the paint.

                         The after!!! I just did a dry brush technique one it. I wanted to age it a little.

 Here is a tray full of graphics from The Graphics Fairy. I spent so much time on there one day I had to stop myself!!! I spent hours looking at all of the wonderful graphics.

 A super inexpensive jar I purchased at a yard sale with a dog label for doggie biscuits!!! I love this label!

                                                                            A glittered tag!

 I printed half a page of these crowns out, cut them, glued them onto a piece of card stock, then glittered around the edge. I love crowns and glitter!!!

 I printed this graphic, cut it out and glued it to the bucket. The bucket is rusty and has no bottom but I think I can hang it up, or fill it with berries or grapevine and it would be cute. I may distress the image to darken it a little more.

Well, as you can see I've been finishing projects. Just haven't had a lot of time to post.
Between VBS and birthdays I've been booked up!!!
My "baby" turns 11 today!!!
Where does the time go???
Happy B-Day Myleigh!
I have more projects to share later!!!
Have a great week!

  5. Hi Crystal,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love that ladder, and for $1?! Who could pass that up? It should make a great display piece. I am obsessed with The Graphics Fairy as well. I can so easily get lost on her site for hours. I just wish I had the time to do all the projects I dream up! Yours turned out great. I love the doggie treat jar, too cute!
    Have a blessed week,

  6. Oh my goodness! I adore every single thing you did! Stepladders are one of my absolute favorite things...I snap them up every time! You have inspired me to do up some pretty jars! Love, Love

  7. Ummmm I think you have that backwards......When can YOU come over and help ME redo everything? *winks*....There's some bling in it for ya if you do......Vanna

  8. Such fun projects...I need to spend *more* time at the Graphics Fairy:)....the sewing machine drawer is my favorite of all!

  9. Beautiful projects! I just love the ladder and that bucket. I recently saw a ladder that had been painted and glass shelves put across it for storage. It was so cute and would look cute on yours to.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, so glad I found yours!
