Mini Projects

Here are two little projects that I did during the week.  I'm pleased with the turn out.  The best part was that most of the paint and supplies I used were in my dad's garage.  Worked out great!

This was a little storage box that I used when I was little for hair clips, jewelry etc.  Obviously it needed an update...

And here it is new and improved!

My second project was an old clock that had been in storage.  It was my great grandma's so we wanted to keep it in the family.  However, it was quite outdated and wasn't going to be hung.  SO, I painted it!  And i love how it turned out.

 Obviously before I even dusted the old thing...

The day I painted the clock it was SO nice outside.  So I decided to throw on a suit and get some sun.  Stupid, stupid me.  I didn't realize how long I was out there or how much sun I was really getting.  Check it out...

Yeah. Ouch.  Thank you UTAH for making me so white.  I don't think I have ever been so burnt in my life. Ugh.

  2. i wish i could update outdated decoration like you! i have zero skill for that. oh, and the plus side to a bad sunburn like that is it'll go away and turn into a tan! yay! :)
