Craft time take 2

As you all know I like to craft. I like to create something out of nothing. I especially like to take old things and make them look new again. I guess those are just more rewarding seeing the transformation. Here are a few of my projects I have been working on. When I brought the rocking chair home Nick didn't have much to say about it. He is used to me bringing home "junk" and just tolerates it. In fact the other night he asked me if I wanted to do anything with his belt that he was getting rid of. He knows I am always on the lookout for my next project. Thanks babe. Tell me what you guys think!

Thank you D.I. for this beauty. My mom was telling me these rocking chairs were quite popular back in the day

Technically I'm not done because both the cushions are loose. Still need to glue those. I stuffed the cushions so they would be fuller and I glazed the wood. You really can't see the glaze that well but it dumbed down the white just a little bit.

I had extra material so I made this pillow but I'm not completely sold on it yet.

This was also a D.I. find. I got it for a photography prop but I am sure I can find a place for it in our new home. :) It was just plain super old wood that didn't have a gloss or anything on it and I just painted and antiqued it.

This was in some decoration magazine that I'm not sure the name of. It was fun to make! It's a styrofoam wreath wrapped in black duct tape with candy corns super glued on. wreath
These are just super easy button earrings that I made in two seconds. You just pop the back of the button and super glue it to an earring post. earring
That is all. Until next time.

Dy I wish we lived closer. I need your help with your crafty skillz! I want to make that cool wreath! I'm sure it takes time to glue all the candy acorns on it! The rocking chair looks so much better, nice work!
