Bright and bubbly

Since last summer, i have moved out of my parents house and into my own little abode. know what that means! Remodeling pics! Unfortunately because I'm new at this business I forgot to take before pictures... But hopefully the bright fun colors will suffice!

For this I first painted a light white prime base topping with a yellow satin finish.
Now I loved this little lamp at first glance...and the $3.00 price didn't hurt either...:) And after adding come bright and fun fabric to the shade I think it looks ahhdorable!

So what do you think? please leave comments or questions!

Summer is finally here!

Well my grades have been posted and I'm officially finished with classes. I'm so grateful to be out and done. I have a TON of things I need to post including new wreaths and project ideas!
I guess to begin... I've been wanting to make a wreath for my mom's classroom annnnnd I found the cutest wreath idea at Hobby Lobby, this will be the perfect thing to hang above her desk. Lets see... I used a Styrofoam wreath, wrapped in bright school bus yellow fabric. I then continued to hot glue crayons around the side of the wreath. After, I just used simple glitter and Elmer's glue to create her name and added a red ribbon to top it all off. What do you think>?

That same day... I came across the paper mache letters and decided to make something for my grandma from all the grandkids. So this is what I came up with... She proudly displays it on her front entry table. :)

For this project all I did was print off pictures and Mod Podge them onto the letter. I then continued to paint the back, inside, and around to give a more finished look. After I sprayed it with a clear coat finish. Overall I think it turned out rather nice!
Please feel welcome to leave comments or helpful notes!
