First I have to share much to my surprise I walked around the corner of the house and my lilac bushes were blooming! Talk about taking time to stop and smell the lilacs!! Life is moving so fast I didn't even know they were blooming!! I LOVE lilacs! They smell AMAZING...and they bring back some great childhood memories for me!
And then there are these bushes on the other side of our house. I call them Snowball Bushes...but please anyone that knows the technical name for them feel free to speak up! All I know is that they are in full bloom too and they are beautiful!
I just had to share those beautiful blooms with all of you! Here is what I worked on most of the afternoon:
The first makeover is a basket that I have had forever.
This is a recipe box I got at Goodwill and a tote that I had got at a garage sale.
Recipe Box After~
Here is a basket I also got a Goodwill...I just put a walnut stain on it.
Here is the tote that was in our bathroom...I just couldn't leave it plain...so I painted it red and then a black topcoat, sanded and stained it...I like it much better!
The last makeover I don't have a before picture for. It was just a little unfinished picket fence that I got at Goodwill for 99cents! I painted it red, sanded and stained it and tucked it behind my topiary on the shelf in my bedroom!
