Hi everybody! Hope you all had a great Monday. The best thing about mine is that it is finally over!!! Actually, it really wasn't that bad, just busy!
For today's makeover, hubby had made me a small wooden crate out of some scrap wood he had left over from some previous projects. Here's a pic of it:
Is this man talented or what???!!! He can take small scraps of wood and turn them into just about anything! I really liked this little crate, but thought it would look even more awesome primmed up a bit. So I got out my black paint, my favorite wall paper motif, and my sand paper and went to work. And this is what I ended up with:
I decided to cut out two different images of sheep from some of the wall paper border I had left over from our bathroom redo and I Mod Podged one on each end of the crate:
I bought some of those little plastic Easter eggs at the dollar store that you can fill with treats and decided to try my hand at covering some of them with fabric. They turned out great! Now, the pictures don't really do them justice. They look much better in person, but here they are:
I was so thrilled with the way these turned out, I then got the brilliant idea to tear up a brown paper bag and Mod Podge the heck out of the left over eggs, then cover them with the torn bits of paper:
Now hubby says these look more like little potatoes to him than eggs, but he has no imagination so what does he know, right??!! LOL!! They do kind of look like little potatoes, I guess, but if you look back at the first picture of my crate where I filled it with the eggs, I think they look great and not so much like potatoes.
Finally, here's one last pic for you of my favorite Easter treat ~ little Miss Sophie!! Her Daddy bought her a pink bandanna that says "Daddy's Girl" on it and she actually let me put a pink bow in her hair. Well, o.k., I tricked her by letting her chew on my fingers while I snuck in from behind her with my other hand and put the bow in her hair! I couldn't get her to sit still enough for me to get a good pic of the bandanna, but ain't she just the cutest thing ever??!!
I am busy, busy, busy trying to get some things finished up for my giveaway! I will be announcing the details at the end of this week, so be sure to stop back by. Trust me, you ain't gonna wanna miss this one!
Well, that's gonna do it for me for now. I am worn slap out and am about ready to hit the sack. I slept poorly last night and I'm really feeling the effects of that now! Hopefully, tonight will be a better night to catch up on some zzzzzzz's!! Hope everyone has a great day tomorrow!
Until next time. . .
