Little Things

Today I want to share two little projects.
First is this coffee table I found on the side of the road. She was pretty, but her legs were falling off.
So I went a whole new route with this table.
The after was inspired by my children. I painted the frame green with chalk paint in the center. I used white acrylic to paint the jars and the marbles. I have chalk ink, (my favorite purchase EVER!) to fill in the marbles, with each child's good choices and kind behavior to their siblings.
I can easily erase the colors when each one fills their jar. Hopefully I won't have to add Kolbe any time soon. The kids love it and we have had no yelling in two days.
I bought this next piece for $3 at a garage sale, I thought the flowers where so pretty, but didn't quite go with soooooo much gold.
So I added a little green, and I LOVE it.
Hope you enjoyed.
One last thing, I found this beauty,( I can not wait to start working on) at the same garage sale. It actually was hiding behind a bunch of boxes in the garage. It was not for sale. They said it was their grandmothers old cooler. With a little sweet talking, they sold it to me for $30.
This guy made my day!
Have a great weekend.

  1. First, I love the ingenious out-of-the-box route you went turning the table into a chalkboard! I love the flowers, too... but oh, my goodness, I am dying over that cooler/ice chest/cabinet for only $30!!! Soooo jealous over here! ;)
