Long weekend projects!

Not too long after we moved into this house 4 years ago we painted all the cabinets in kitchen white.  I have been meaning to paint all of the cabinets in the bathrooms also and never got around to it till now!They still need a lot of touch up but the largest part is over.

I always get so excited about projects that I forget to take before pictures.  All of the cabinets looked like this before.

And after.

We added the knobs too.

Did you work on any projects this weekend?

Green Lamp!

So here is my green lamp!

I love spray paint and Goodwill.  You can paint and update almost anything with spray paint.  This mirror was gold.

This lamp was a dark antique bronze.

And yes that tray and pen holder I posted previously was done with spray paint.

With this paint you can make anything glass look like mirror.  I may need some practice with it, but it's a lot of fun.

I have some apothecary jars that I've been using for different seasonal decor.  Lately I've been wanting to turn them into terrariums.  So I have been gathering supplies for a while and I finally put them together. 

I don't know if I'm done messing with them, but I'm pretty happy.

Looking glass

I bought some looking glass spray paint a while back and I finally got around to trying it out.  And I like it, check it out!

I used an old picture frame to make the tray.

Talley's 7th birthday!

If you know me or my husband, you know we love our dogs like they were our children.  April 25th was Talley's 7th birthday.  For this birthday I used Puppy Cakes cake mix to make lots of mini cupcakes for the girls.  They gave the cup cakes two paws up!!

Roxie thought they were delicious!

Talley was very happy!
