Makeover Monday and Giveaway News!

Happy Monday to everyone!! Woohoo!! Y'all did it ~ 102 followers when I signed on this morning so that means a second prize package will be awarded to one lucky follower!! I really appreciate everyone who has signed up to follow me and more than that, I am so very thankful and humbled by all your wonderful comments and compliments. Y'all are the best!

Now for Monday's Makeover. I have just a couple little things to show you today. I redid another shelf I had in my kitchen. It was a cutesy red shelf with the dreaded heart cutout!! Do you see a theme here?? LOL! I had hubby cut the heart part out of the shelf and he put in a small eye hook so that I could hang something from the center. I just painted black over the red and distressed it. I like it much better now. Here it is before:

Here it is after:

I also found this little "home" sign at the Dollar Tree and bought a package of wooden spoons from Walmart for less than a dollar and primmed them up a bit. I like the way these turned out as well.
Here they are before:

And here they are after:

And here's one final picture of everything all decorated:

Well, I'm off of here for now. Gotta finish up getting ready for work. I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!

Until next time. . .
