The stories behind some of my projects

My Story

While I gather projects to part with, I've decided to include a card with my 're-engineered' or 're-loved' projects highlighting their transformation from forgotten/dated/destroyed to new found beauty. The mini card would 2.5 inches by 2.5 inches. The front would have the before photo and the back would have what the project used to be and where it was found.

Here's an example for my black baby booties with the felt applique heart...

Recent Finds

I bought this bottle opener at the Lions Gate Thrift Store last week for $2 - it's so cute and Disney like. I feel like I should name it! It just amazes me the absolutely kewl stuff you can find in thrift stores...

Here's my most recent purchase - I love it! This is one piece I'll definitely keep once it's done. It's a gorgeous night stand. I bought it for $20 at a garage sale... It was pretty extravagant for me but definitely worth it. I actually spotted it 2 weeks ago and got the seller's phone number. I called and she still had it so we met today for the exchange. I want to sand, stain and seal it. I contemplated changing the drawer handles but I've decided to keep these since they're most likely the original handles. I can't wait to work on this project!
