Creative Itch

I have not been scratching my creative itch for some time now. It was a busy summer, but with 2 mornings freed up with my girls in school, I am so excited to tackle some projects! I saved this file cabinet from the dump, by dragging it from my neighbors trash can to my back patio. I thought.. hey.. I could totally give that a makeover!

I am going to sand it, paint it.. and see what I can make of it. Wish me luck!

I am also going to head to the dollar store after I drop the girls off in the morning, pick up some supplies I need to make the pinata for Allison's birthday. Not sure If I want to do an animal, a princess.. maybe a castle? or maybe just some abstract piece? The kids won't care- they will beat it to a pulp anyway.. with me crying with every hit, lol!

A while back, I transformed a 15 dollar coffee table find, by glueing painted glass all over it.. I need to buy grout, so it will be a mosaic outside table.. Stay tuned, I will be posting pics of each completed project!

I am so ready to scratch this itch! Yay!

Sounds like fun! Redoing furniture like that is one thing I've always wanted to do, but just haven't been brave enough. Good luck on it, can't wait to see the photos!
