Painting my White Dresser to Green


Last year I shared my guest room with my sewing things. This year we made the room into my sewing and craft room. Everything in it was white, but now I wanted everything to have color. So I painted the white dresser green.



  I also painted the gold handles black. I really like how it came out. One thing about painting if you don't like it or get tired of the color you can always paint it again.


  As you can see I put the new lamp on the dresser with my quilting books underneath it.


     I am taking a break. This year has not been a good one for me health wise. I have been having some health problems again.  I plan on being back in 2017, but I do not know when. Until than take care of yourselves and have a Happy New Year.

Refreshing a Lamp Shade


Have you ever had a plain lampshade that you wanted to fix up, but not sure if you wanted to make it permanent?  I bought this lamp just for this room, but it was plain. I wanted to add some trim to it, but also wanted it not to be permanent.





       Here is the trim that I found in my stash and two tacks with decorative tops on them.


                   I just wrapped the trim around the shade and put in the thumbtack.



              Here is what the other side looks like, so I can have two different looks.


                     I wanted to add another trim on the top and did the same.


               Will be showing in on my dresser that I am painting in the next post.

Picture Frames with Inspirational Sayings

I had some old frames that I wanted to make fresh and put in some inspirational sayings to put above my desk space. See what I came up with. Sorry about not having a before picture of the first frame. It was just a plain wood frame that I painted yellow. My printer only prints in black and white so that is why I did not have colorful sayings.  You can go online and find quotes and sayings that you can print out on your own and that is what I did.


     I had some pretty pink tape that I decorated the frame with and you can see the full saying here.  I did not noticed that the first picture glared out some words.  I took a yellow magic marker and filled in the white dots.


 

      Here is another old wood frame that I had and painted it blue.


 
     I decorated it with more of the pink decorated tape I had.  My camera got blurred. It seems when my battery gets low in my camera everything blurs. Had to go and charge it up.



    Hubby made me this out of an old piece of wood. I just painted  a design on it.

   

     I did this by hand and was going to make it darker, but afraid it would come out all blurred. Still came out ok don't you think?



I will show them up on the wall in another post, now back to another project.
