Crafts and Refurbishing!

So I've been in such a crafty mood these days, I've decided that i'm gonna start showing my craftiness on my blog for you all to see :) I have so many ideas, i'm just excited to get them all done. So here are my projects i've done over this week and last:

So what do you get when you have these wonderful items?


These totally awesome centerpieces, or candle holders, or flower holder, the choice is yours! I'm so excited with the way they turned out. I'm going to get some colored rocks or jewels to put in these one's on my kitchen table.


Kristina and I had another craft lunch, and these are what we made. These are just made with styrofoam, paper, and ribbon around the edges! I think they turned out so cute! Now they are proudly hanging in my living room. :)


Another thing I've been doing, is trying to find some "ugly" furniture from DI, and refurbish it into something fantastic! Here was my first find! This little cabinet/nightstand thing, was an ugly old cheap look wood color with shiny brass handle pulls. So I just spray painted the whole thing black, sprayed the handles red, and ta-da!!! You get this totally awesome new addition to our living room! I think it looks awesome! I can't wait to find my next refurbishing project soon!

And here is the whole little set up all together. I really, really, really like it :) Go me!

Thanks for looking :)
