More Fun Projects

I am living and breathing Project: Belle and Estella Dru's New Space at the moment. I finished two small projects today, and I must say, I am totally digging on them. The first... I just needed something big and round for one of the wall focal points. I looked high and low, and found nothing. Then, of course, it was Hobby Lobby to the rescue. I got this jewel at half price today.... exactly what I was wanting, except for the color. Actually, I loved it as it was, but it just it didn't the funky feel of the girls' new digs. So... I made it work. And I love it.




Next, I took an old lamp I bought when Estella was probably two and gave it a makeover. The only cost was the trim, which set me back all of $9. The soft beads were 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby for around $1. I already had the paint. Total cost: around $10 for this one-of-a-kind lamp. They loved it... which is all I need.



We have a lot to do this weekend, but we're almost there! Did you hear that Matt? I said, "WE!!!" Get your tool belt out, Mister. I've got a list with your name on it!

This is so much fun. I am getting excited, can't wait to see the finished product! And the best part of it, your girls will always remember this, they will always remember the time that you took to make their space special! Memories, you gotta love them!

You are motivating me. It's been awhile since I've delved into a project, besides the neverending laundry.

LOL, I need to send you shopping for me. I am one who goes in and gets only what I need and leaves, this is why I miss the bargins! Not patient or to busy, can't figure out which one I am!
