Rubbish Rescued

While Judi has been running like a chicken with her head cut off, I have been busy too. Busy just trying to keep the kids from tearing the house apart occupied, busy trying to make this house into a home, and trying (unsuccessfully, I might add) to keep up with the household  chores. The kids dirty things up as fast as I can clean them! I’m just about ready to let them run around naked..less laundry that way! LOL

I also decided to undertake a couple of little projects. My hubby and I were driving along when I spotted something at the curb..I shouted ” Stop!” and he pulled into a driveway a few doors down, and I jumped out. I looked around, didn’t see anyone staring at me so I rummaged through a bunch of junk and stole rescued this cute little night table.

Isn't it cute?

Well, that’s what it looked like BEFORE. Before $15 worth of paint, and a $4 knob from Home Depot. This is what it looks like NOW…

I stamped a couple of butterflies on the top. They didn’t turn out as well as I’d hoped, but they’re ok. I couldn’t find my purple ink, so I had to use paint. 

Also, I had these letters I’d bought from Michael’s..oh geez, probably at least a year ago..for Charlotte. When we were at St. Jacobs last weekend, I spotted some for Meredith as well..smaller and thinner, different font, and cheaper as well since I wanted to finish them myself. So I finally got to work on those while I had my paints and brushes out anyway. I love how they turned out!

Now I better get back to my laundry so I can start packing up for the cottage tomorrow. Hope you all have a great week!
