Hi there blogging sisters,
I'm just checking in to show you what I've been up to :)
This is a door that I bought for $15
and turned into a headboard for one of our bedrooms.
With the help of some tide-charts and books,
I was able to find just the right things to decoupage onto the panels.
As you can see I painted it green and then dry brushed some dark blue into it.
The paddles were something that I made from scraps of plywood,
left from paneling my new studio.
I say not bad for a $15 redo :)
What do you think?
After I made the paddles I took them outside
and beat them with a rock and on the side of a cinder block.
Entering the pink bedroom, my favorite.
I love this old mirror.
I bought it years ago at an estate sale.
(Oops! there I am in the photo)
Well, there's the tour,
but before I close I want you to look at
the center quilt stacked on the cabinet.
My Mom made that and every stitch in the quilt
is done by hand.
It will someday belong to our daughter and then one of our granddaughters.
She put so much of her soul into it,
and I feel her presence each time I look at it.
Do you have a family treasure?
Please share :)
Have a lovely week.
Your blogging sister,
