I made some pantry cakes! And it was FUN! I also dyed cheesecloth last night and let me tell you girls....(maybe you already know this) but drying out cheesecloth in the microwave for 30 seconds works like a charm! Just another tip from Char over at the Pickled Pepper Patch! She is FULL of great ideas and tips and she is always so willing to share! Thanks Char! Here's how they turned out....and notice the breadboard they are on! It was in a previous post of mine. Made by my good friend Lisa I just love it! Thanks again Lisa...you are so talented! :)
My other little project was a mini makeover. My daughter made a little toolbox in shop class. She did a great job! She got an A! :) Anyway, it wasn't being used so she gave me permission to prim it up! It is going to go on the counter in my upstairs bathroom....what's going to go in it you ask?.....I'm not sure yet. But I will post a picture when it is in it's new home.
Here is the before~
And here is the after~
I did a black undercoat and a tan over that. It turned out this blue/gray color. You just never know what you are going to get! But I am happy with the results! I finished it off with a dark walnut stain.
Oh yea...one more thing before I go....I stopped by Goodwill! Here are the goodies I got! I found a wooden bowl...someone painted it mustard and underneath that someone painted a watermelon on it ..seeds and all. I hope I can make something out of it! I thought the wooden crate was great and with Easter right around the corner I thought I could give it a makeover and do something with it! I LOVE all the molds...and I will make some larger pantry cakes after I perfect my smaller ones! Look at the bunny mold! Too fun! And I just couldn't pass up the mini "Ball" jars. Now I just need some mini prim labels for them! :)
I hope whatever your weekend plans are you all enjoy them! Take care. Until next time. ~Sarah~
