Monogrammed Frame

Added this frame on my pinterest to do list, and finally got to it just in time for fall. 

I found this black frame in a yard sale and thought it was perfect for this little project.  

Headed to Michaels to pick up the rest of the goods.   A tan foam board for the back, some burlap, and a C.  We had the off-white paint at home. 

Cut the black of the frame.

 Covered it in Burlap.

 Painted the frame and C.   We used spray adhesive to keep the burlap on the foam board, and used blazing points to keep the back on the frame.

Mom' Birthday Present...a new old vanity!

My mother being the caring woman that she is, is always more worried about her children then herself, and has been using this old beat up vanity for over 25 years.   It was time for my handyman to intervene.   So for her birthday (which was in May)  Kev went to work on her new/old vanity!  

Turns our not only was this little guy old and beat.  Kev found out it was also was covered in lead paint.   So he first stripped the lead paint and refinished the top of the bench and the table.   Then he sanded and stained to bring out the beautiful natural wood that was hiding under that brown paint.   He then repainted the bottom with an antique white and then screwed in some new hardware.  

It was done just in time for us to borrow for Emmy's shower!
