It has been raining here a lot..
At the first of the week, the rain was worth singing about.
Now, not so much.
I spray painted (barely had enough paint and the time (2 mins) to get it done before the rain started again.)
I sanded, and stained.
Yes, I know that it will take a couple days to completely dry, but I had to do it!
I had to!
It was killing me!
I painted this table-
(yes Laci, it's almost done!! Promise!)
and some canisters and another table.
oh, and my hands.
AND-I even got my easter crap down.
Don't judge-I have had a rough time trying to not be lazy!
I did make this for a friend.
I used her Dad's old wool coat.
I cut the collar off and pulled the labels out.
I added some vintage paper to finish the shadow box.
She loved it!
I used the rest of the coat to make a pillow.
The rosettes were made out of pieces of the coat.
I cut out the pockets and used the cream felt and funky, hounds tooth fabric for fun embellishments.
Such a unique idea for an old, forgotten coat, that might be sitting in a closet.
And-to finish up this totally random post with a little more nostalgia-
I spent my evening watching this chickadee & her cute friends rock the stage in their
Alice in Wonderland production.
Yes, I am a little proud of her!
