Does Your Glass Table Need a New Look?

Just yesterday my mom & I were talking and she brought up how much she wanted to replace her coffee table! It is black metal with a glass top. I have seen so many changes made with spray paint lately that I suggested she paint the under-side in black. And, it just so happened that she had a can left over from another project. We hung up and she got to it! About 3 coats later, this is the result! The sun was creating a glare, but you get the idea. :) I think it looks great! (Sorry, no "before" picture.)
Update: Aparently their cats did not realize the table existed before, and now they think it is fantastic and want to sit on it all of the time!

Garage Sale Finds

We are having our annual neighborhood wide garage sale this weekend. Just around the corner, I found a fantastic round side-table with caning as it's top and base. It needs a bit of TLC, but I am happy to use it as-is for now. I love the way it looks in our front room! We are so lucky to have it! And my favorite part, it only cost $5.00!

I found 1 more side table for only $2.00. I am not sure where I am going to put it right now. But I will definitely try out my re-finishing and painting skills. I'll keep you posted....

Punch Storage

Well, my craft room is getting there, little by little. After a lot of thinking.... I finally decided where to set up my punch storage - yeah! I also have mini punches and will probably keep them in a drawer, where I can slide it out and see all of them at a glance. I also keep a cardstock sheet on hand with my mini punch shapes glued on, in a contrasting color for easy reference. (I have a few more punches lurking around still waiting to be found.)

These punches are tucked in right behind my door and fit perfectly on the Bygel rails, found in the kitchen section of Ikea. They do not come with the screws, so I used drywall screws which were black. No problem, I got out my handy dandy silver spray paint and ta da! Just take your standard plastic grocery bag, place it on the lawn and push the screws through the bag, anchoring them in the lawn. Spray away! When they are dry, just pull the bag up and carry it inside -extracting the screws out as you need them. They won't roll away or get lost. Easy peasy.
