Good Day everyone! I wanted to share with you one of my garage sale makeovers that I just finished. And yes, it involves Heirloom White spray paint, and Ralph Lauren antiquing glaze in "smoke". I know, you are shocked and surprised! There are very few projects that I don't use Ralph on, and while I seem to use HW on just about everything, I am getting bold and branching out to the aqua family! I'll be sure to show you some of my aqua redos soon!
Do you see the plain ol' ordinary wooden wall organizer in the photo below? Well, I know it looks pretty boring here, but check out what I did with it!
After the paint was dry, I lightly sanded the edges & followed up with the antiquing glaze. Just wipe it on & wipe it off. Couldn't be easier! I knew that I wanted to decoupage vintage sheet music to the front, as I've really been liking that look lately. I wasn't sure what I was going to use after that, then I remembered seeing these sweet bird images over at The Graphic's Fairy. I love birds, and I think these are just the cutest! I especially love the bird below. So after several coats of Mod Podge, letting dry in between, my little organizer was almost done.

Welcome to my blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!
