Close up~Look how blue the sky is~
Here is a closeup of our Crab Apple tree in the backyard~
Here are my favorite flowers of all~
Yep...you got it! Dandelions! My son Owen picked these for me today. Is there anything sweeter than a little child's hands...all grubby....running to you with that big smile on their face!? He brought them to me and said "Mom you have to get these in water quick"! And of course I did! It is the most beautiful bouquet in the world! I set it by my Spring blocks from Kindra. :)
One more Spring image to share..this is our Creeping Phlox..so pretty and of course we are now have always been and will always be Iowa Hawkeye Fans~~Go Hawks!
Well the nice weather means I have had time to get out in the garage and do some makeovers. The first one was for a friend of mine. This shelf we found at the antique mall...and we couldn't pass it up...we both loved it! But we both thought it would look better in black.
Here it is before~
After~I am thinking of doing some painted and distressed wainscoting behind the shelf...opinions are welcome~
Close up of drawers~
Here are just a couple quick makeovers~ I don't have before pictures..but I will tell you that this little tote (got it at Goodwill for .99 cents) was dark brown and had some holly leaves and berries on the front...I sanded those right off with my handy dandy Black & Decker Mouse sander (my new best friend) gotta get yourself one of these! It works like a charm!
Here is the little tote after~
And this is a little bowl I got at The Salvation Army for $1.59. It was just plain brown. I painted it black, then brown, then I sanded it distressed it, gave it a few knifes marks and then put on a dark walnut stain. All of which don't show up very good in the picture....Bummer. :(
I have a couple more makeovers to show but will save those for next time...I hope you are still with me after this long post. I just wanted to share those pretty Spring photos with you. I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful Spring day too where ever you may live! Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I am getting away tomorrow for some shopping with two prim blogging friends~Kindra & Janae...I am SO looking forward to it! I know it is going to be a fun time and I hope I have LOTS of goodies to share with you when I get back! Until next time. Take care. ~Sarah~
