DIY Projects

Hey There,
I feel like it's been forever since I've blogged.  Oh wait, that's because it HAS been forever!  Our home computer crashed so we were without a computer for awhile.  And blogging from my iphone just wasn't working for me.  So I'm back.  I will have some new DIY projects that I wanted to share.

This past weekend we went to Canton Trade Days - its like the largest flea market, garage sale, antique shopping ever.  So we spent most of the day Friday there.  I found the best metal pirate ship!  I saw it and knew it was meant for me.  Right now it's in the garage, along with most of my other belongings, because I just have no space for it.  But once we move, I hope to find the perfect spot.

Oh, and I also picked out some hardware for that table that I refinished remember?  See table before and afters here...
I'm happy with the way it turned out.  Ignore the fact that I'm a terrible photographer and the lighting in my house is awful.  But aren't they cute drawer pulls?

Ok, for my next project that I am working on currently... You know those old printers drawers that you can find at antique shops for hundreds of dollars?  Well, I have 2.  One was given to me and one I found for $5 at a garage sale.  Score!  Well, then I had no idea what to do with them.  Putting all kinds of trinkets in them just is not my thing.  So I going in a different direction... ooo aren't you so curious now?  Hopefully I will have some before and after pics to share later this week.

Love the ship. I'm sure you'll find a great place for it!
The hardware looks good too!
Can't wait to see your printers drawers. I can't remember where you had them at your hold house?
