Crafty weekend

Just a few little crafty projects I worked on this weekend:
Project #1
Frame from HomeGoods that I already had.
Spray painted Heirloom White, added some ivory ribbon and a clearance pin from Michaels.
Project #2
Ceramic finials from Dollar Tree
A little Heirloom White spray paint.
Fun, easy, cheap projects.

  1. Doesn't get any better than that! I need to hop over to my Dollar Store to find those finials. Very cute. Wish I could spray paint...gotta wait 3 months yet till it gets over 50 here....

    Thanks for linking to Mi4M :)

  2. GOR-GEOUS! My DT doesn't have those finials yet...or maybe I missed them when they were there...I hope I didn't miss them, love me some fleur de lis!

  3. I will be checking out our DOLLAR TREE stores for those cute little finials...thanks soooo much for sharing with us.


  4. This is the 2nd time I've seen those Dollar Tree finials! I must have missed them when I was there last week! MUST. GO. BACK. QUICKLY!!

    Love your projects!

  5. Love all of the makeovers...beautiful! Isn't it funny what a little paint can do?!


  6. Love both projects, guess I'll be checking out Dollar Tree at lunch today. I'm so glad you showed that frame cause I had bought 3 frames and ribbon and have some broaches of my mom's to use for this exact project! (Just haven't had time to get around to it yet). Both of these projects turned out great!


  7. Cute! I got those same finials at DT! Went back last week for more to paint white. I've got a Power of Paint Party on Wednesdays.. I'd love for you to share you project.

  8. Robyn they really look beautiful painted white. Love the precious bow frame!

    I want to let you know that I have a BIG give-a-way starting on Sunday and it will be really fun. I am calling it SPREADING THE LOVE--cuz I love my FOLLOWERS. There are lots of gifts, from really cool vendors. Each week there will be SEVERAL winners--that is right it will be going on all month long. So you can come back each week and leave me a comment, to put your name in.

    You don't have to have a blog--you can e-mail me to enter your name.

    Followers get their name in once and if you have my button on your side bar your name will go in 5 more times.
