My dear friend Rebecca had a birthday a couple of weeks ago. She appreciates the homemade, handmade gifts more than the average bear and since I am feeling extra crafty (and am limited on resources these days) this was a perfect opportunity to make something fabulous for this fabulous friend.
So this is what I started with-
OLD WINDOWS from my garage.
my new BFF, the palm sander
(love this little guy!)
'Got my sand on..
(P.S.-If I look miserable here, I was. It was 95 degrees that day and there was NO wind. None. I think I baked my baby a little too much that day.)
Moving right along..
I chopped the window in half because a.) I thought the whole window was a tad large for what I was doing and b.) the top half was rotten.
So... chop suey!
with some minor repairs
some fresh paint
a large ammount of cleaning
more palm sanding.
Then, my lovely assistant helped with the knobs
and the back hooks.
and the finished product:
A fun decoration/ coat hook/ display thingy.
The birthday girl :
She was so excited she exuded light out of her mouth! It's a magical birthday window!
I think she liked it a lot.
I am going to make one for my baby too. I got her 4 knobs and hope to hang her sweet kitty cat robes and fun 3 inch long newborn hoodies from it! Makes me want to squeal!
I recently acquired a bird cage that I am going to repaint for the baby's room and a chair that needs sanded and repainted, not to mention the bookshelf that needs a face-lift and the name sign I was going to paint for her.. I have PLENTY of projects to keep me busy during my nesting phase!
2 more months is all I have left.
I better get crack a lackin'!
