A sneak peek

We've been working on our bedroom for the past week since hubby's off work for a couple weeks yay!:) I'm no interior designer but I'm very excited because I think we will love it and that's what matters. Not everything is in place yet, but I wanted to share just a couple pictures..
I saw this door at a garage sale over a year ago. $5? Yep only $5 so I couldn't leave it. It's been sitting in the garage till recently. First I painted it an off white and distressed it, then changed it to white and in the process of distressing it again. Let's see how it turns out...So this is what's been keeping us busy lately.

A few months ago I started making rosettes. When the room is finished you'll know where they end up. ;) Not too much longer!

I feel like I need to alternate between different projects so as not to get bored doing the same thing for too long. I have been trying to come up with a more professional camera strap cover and still keep the shabby, vintage look. I don't know...I'm working on a few more trying different things and I'll be sure to post if they are a success...maybe just maybe put them on Etsy.. :) We'll see.

Handmade envelopes! Been falling in love with them again and made a bunch just lately. The brown ruffled envelopes are made for cd covers, and the green ruffled are for 4 by 6 photos!
