We LOVE finding unique pieces to make into something so amazing. We found this table at Habitat For Humanity, and questioned whether or not it was worth the work, haha. Once we made the purchase, the work started. 

The original table was bubbled, warped, and ugly. We used a hair dryer + tools to scrap off the old table top. This left it a little rough, so we reached for our handy Bondo, to fill the holes and finish with a smooth texture. After sealing, we made it to the fun part. PAINT! 

The legs of the table + chairs are painted with Freedom Road, and then sealed with topcoat. The table top was painted with Rushmore, and slightly distressed for spots of Freedom Road to pop through, and of course top coat on top! (paints are from American Paint Company)

We re-upholstered the chairs with some fabric we bought on sale, no need to spend a ridiculous amount of money on fabric. You can almost ALWAYS find a nice fabric for a cheap price - cough cough $15 for 3 yards - 

Check out the before + after photos below!

Our favorite craft fair is quickly approaching! We are feeling giving this year, so this adorable knitting cabinet gets to go home with a very lucky crafter. It is bright and fun, the perfect addition to a craft room, plus it has a ton of storage -- 3 drawers + 2 storage units on the sides! 

We hope to see your smiling face on November 7th at the Columbine Craft Fair

When you love wine, you tend to collect corks. You always claim you will do something creative and unique with them. But let's face it, they sit in a hidden cupboard and are never touched. Well folks, problem solved.

Here is a quick tutorial on these sweet little escort cards! 
I used an X-ACTO knife to create a small slit in the side of each cork. Make sure the slit goes into the top and bottom to make the next step easier.
Cut paper, color your choice. I measured the corks, and cut mine at about 1.5in by 2-3in. Write names, however you please!
Take the corner edge, slide into slit, then pull down until completely into cork.
BOOM! You have created a sweet little something for each guest to take home with them.
