This weekend was spectacular. Saturday was gorgeous, 70 degree weather. Elizabeth and I loaded up with my aunt, cousin (who I often refer to as my sister – because well, she practically always has been), and my niece. We hit several local yard sales and had lunch. I got Elizabeth a lot of summer clothes and picked up a few things for the house. Yesterday was not quite as nice weather wise (seriously, what is up with this crazy weather). It was super cold and rainy, but we all went back out for lunch and a trip to Goodwill. I am on a hunt for some new things for our house.
And while I was there, this idea was born.
I found a 2.99 frame and .99 pillow case, that were each discounted. I found lots of other things too that I’ll share with you eventually (as well as where this nifty little tray will stay), but I just couldn’t wait to get this project done and shared.
I simply popped the glass out, painted the frame with craft paint I had on hand (only because I am out of spray paint). Once it was good and dry I went over it again to make sure there weren’t any paint strokes (they drive me nuts). While it was all drying, I cut the pillow case out and wrapped it around the cardboard insert of the frame. Then reassembled everything.
I really love it. I cannot wait to show you where it will go and how it will eventually be styled.
Here’s just a couple of things I pulled together to give you an idea of the size and colors.
For about $3.00 I have a new, custom tray! I love it! This one will go on our ottoman, and I am working on a similar one, to go on our bathroom counter to corral all of our stuff.
in other news, I am SUPER excited and a little overwhelmed for this week. Early Thursday morning I will be flying to Dallas for BlissDom! Excited to be a Community Leader and meet up with some of my favorite people! I have a lot of prep to do before then, eek!
I have been selling tons of things from our house that I just don’t need/want. I thought I had already purged everything I didn’t love last year, but I am still finding stuff… Getting it out of the house is so freeing to me, and getting paid for it is makes it even better!
