Think I may have posted this one before, but I'm looking for some inspiration, so get out some of those trash to treasure photos and let's see what you've done.

No longer use these (or don't right now!) as I've changed my kitchen. The shelves are made from two red and white enameled table leaves that I bought 2 for $5.00 Still have them and they are gorgeous!
Next?

Okay, you guys! Just decided to keep posting photos until somebody gets sick of seeing them and does their own!! LOL

Need some "cheap" art? These handprints from our three kids and one grandchild hang on our kitchen pantry door. They were made in kindergarten and first grade of our three kids. Kids are now 37, 33 and 30!

The other grandkids are on another wall. Hope we don't have but one or two more. We're running out of wall space! LOL

My friend and I painted my kitchen floor several years ago. It was an avocado green vinyl floor. We took several spray bottles of assorted colors of diluted paint and made random splatters all over the base coat of porch gray. Then I used several coats of polyurethane on it. It lasted five or six years, at least, until I could afford to have a tile floor put down. Cost? Paint and two pitchers of margaritas! LOL

You're doing a good job! I don't have photos of anything I've finished. I like to see to see what others have done.

When I get my doors done I will post them. I'm still trying to decide on 4 7 x 11 squares or 2 7 x 22 [or 19] I had another suggestion from someone at the KT that was a good idea to get some fabric and use starch and put it on the doors. So I will heading out to see what fabric I can find that might match.
Have a great day!

These aren't as creative as yours YaYa, but it's all I got right now. *S*


Picture on the left shows my telephone table which was a dark green when I got it, I painted it with lots of white paint, added the wood piece on the front and recovered the seat with fabric from an old dress. The lamp is a rummage sale find for $2.00, the chenille spread I found at a flea market for $5.00. Second picture shows my wicker chair ($5.00 at a yard sale) with pillows made from an old chenille spread and another which is a stained standard pillowcase put on a wide short pillow, then just wrapped around so that the pretty part shows. The shutters are just hinged together and set in the window. The table is the one I made from and old milk crate with legs topped with a piece of glass.

Thanks Lydia, Yes that's an old cooler. A guy I use to work with gave it to me. I was soooooo excited. No one else at work thought it was great. Can you believe that?
