What a fantastic weekend! The weather has been glorious and I’ve been a busy happy girl. Here’s a rundown of the weekend
First up our kitchen cabinets. I had removed the doors several months ago and lined the back with scrapbook paper. Better – but not good enough. You can see I had issues lining things up and cutting the paper correctly.
With a little tablecloth fabric from the Target Clearance section last year ( I thought it was going to be curtains) and some cardboard I made backing to fit each open cabinet – there are three of them
Here’s the finished result in one of the cabinets. Much better and I love the way the aqua pops with our brown walls and some yellow accents.
Project 2 – a new not a wreath from our front door.
The supplies were cardboard, yarn, ribbon, and some hair clips. All I had to buy was the yarn. Everything else was on hand.
Love my finished result – very bright and springy – but can I just tell you that L was a pain in the booty to wrap evenly.
Final project – a gallery wall in our den – my brother bought me the vinyl quote for my birthday it says “Family where life begins Love never ends” I had all the pictures and frames scattered throughout our living room. I picked up the L at Hobby Lobby for half off $9.99. Hung everything with 3M velcro tabs. (love those things)
This weekend also featured a trip to Clothes Mentor – a consignment store for adults. Daddy kept WeeMan at home so I was able to try things on. (Love that man!) $100 later I have a smaller wardrobe for spring and summer – 5 pairs of capris, 1 skirt, 3 blouses, 2 pairs of jeans, and 3 pairs of sandals. Several of the items are from AnnTaylor the Loft or Gap. I love that I can buy clothes from stores like that now. I especially love that I found them used and super cheap!
I made money this weekend too. I listed a bunch of WeeMan’s summer clothes from last year on our garage sale facebook page Friday night. I’ve already sold over $150 worth. With another $50 pending tomorrow. I’ll be using the money from this next weekend when I go to the huge children’s resale up in Wakarusa to outfit WeeMan for this summer.
Finally, we even worked in a date night. Of course date night ended at the grocery store… but I guess that’s a sign we’re getting old.
