As you know, I love free furniture and my Mom was giving this filing cabinet away after her own furniture make overs.
I knew this was a fun makeover for the blog. All I needed was scrapbook paper and modge podge!
I am pretty happy with the results, although I think it needs a little more TLC to be perfect.

When I arrived home from work today this is what I found…
I am in love with my paper roses and Valentine. I think my crafting has been rubbing off on my computer lover husband, I am very impressed.

I know it is crazy to have two posts in one day… but I had posted a sneak peek on Friday and wanted to share the results!
I had paper hearts left over from our wedding as our adorable flower girl got caught up walking down the aisle she forgot to drop them… which is okay by me because now I can craft with them!
What you need to complete this project:
1 frame (any size)
1 bunch of paper hearts (folded or not) any colour
Staple Gun (I had a mini stapler and a hammer)
*I would suggest to make this project super cheap that you visit your local paint store and grab some paint swatches.
Attach hearts to string after hole punching them in any order and staple the string to the back of the frame. Voila!
*If you like the idea of no hole punch, you can glue the hearts to the string.
The original idea came from Pinterest of course and this blog: www.makinghomebase.com/valentines-day-floating-heart-wall-art/
Happy middle week!
As I contemplate my weekend crafting project, I thought I would share one of my crafting organization tricks.
When you are a crafter you have a lot of small items that you need to complete many of your projects. The big question is where do you put those items so you can access them and they aren’t taking up space?
I found a jewelry organizer hanger at home sense (one of my favourite stores) with pockets on both sides! For $15 dollars I have my small stuff organized. It’s a great crafting solution and hides behind the door!
After two weeks, the shutter project is finally complete! And I must say Amy loves her shutter project!
The shutter was pretty rough and needed a good sand down/cleaning.
After sanding, I primed the shutter with spray paint primer.
First layer of spray paint colour makes it start to look like something!
I had to move the shutter indoors as the temperature from last weekend had dropped and I didn’t want the spray paint to bubble.
I wanted to break up the shutter by adding some words. First I used a chalk pencil and ruler to map out the words I practiced the night before. Then I used a sharpie paint marker to finish off the shutter. Also, I added one of my favourite buttons to a previous hole.
To finish the project off I added pictures and magazines to the shutter! If you wanted to make this project you could also use it to hold cards over the year.
For $15 dollars in spray paint, I am in love with this project that now sits in my bedroom. I can grab magazines and look at some pictures from our engagement session everyday!
