TRASH TO TREASURES PARTY 7

This morning I did not go to ANY yardsales....SHOCK!!! Last night the Hubby & I, along with some great friends, went down to Oxford to hear Josh's friend, Sanders Bohlke, perform. Visit Sanders website...He is so unbelievably talented! Anyways, we didn't get home until around 2. Needless to say, I was exhausted. Also, the Hubby finally had a Saturday off and I couldn't find it in me to part him this morning. He's too cute:)

I do, HOWEVER, have a few Trash To Treasure Transformations to show off :

Remember this TRAY?

My sister, Lindsay, had a birthday this past week. I knew exactly what I was going to do for her! She had complimented my trays in the past, So I knew she would love this one!
I gave it a coat of chalkboard paint. Painted the sides in her colors: Green, Yellow, & Brown....
Then I wrote a little message...
Happy Birthday to Lindsay!! Hope you enjoy it!

Next up : remember this MIRROR...
I didn't know what to do with it for a while. It was such an odd shape...then it hit me... I coated it with AGAIN chalkboard paint & a little blue.... &&& VIOLA!
It now hangs above our Laundry closet! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! Whatcha think?

Today I'm spending the entire day with the Hubby! It's the first "Saturday Day" we have had since we were dating!
I'm going to make THIS for dinner : Basil Chicken Pasta... YUM!!

FAB projects and pasta... PERFECT!!!

Its So Very Cheri said...

Thanks for posting. I have read that chalkboard paint won't adhere to a mirror so I will be curious to see how this holds up.
Great job as always and thanks for hosting your party as well.
