Easy doormat makeover



Welcome back, I hope y'all had a great weekend. Mine was a blur, but the great news is I am off on Monday. (sweeeeeet) This post is a continuation from last weeks post. Guess what, I wasn't able to get anything done outside, "welcome fall projects," but I did get to makeover my doormats. Read on.....



 Tired, dull, boring, discolored, you get the big picture, but instead of discarding these mats for something new, I breathed
new life into them with paint. I already had several jars of paint from previous projects, so I went to my paint stash selected the colors and started painting. ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?



 Hello Somebody, Can you hear me now!!!!!!!  This project was really simple and inexpensive. I spent approximately $2 for a couple bottles of  Plaid acrylic paint (2 oz size of fresh cut grass and fresh foliage), because I didn't have any green paint in my stash. What do you think? I Love It!!!! After the paint dried I sealed the mats with several coats (4) of Polycrylic in a satin finish . I will let you know how it holds up.  Do you remember the wreaths from last weeks post?  I didn't get a chance to hang them since it was pouring rain outside that evening, so here they are.  Enjoy the pics!









 



  Thanks for stopping by!

2 your home,
Lory

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!


Chat soon...
