Pet Bed made from Vintage Dresser Drawer

Every pet bed is unique due to the size of the drawer. We custom paint to everyone's decor. Pets and there owners love them. Painting this drawer is very simple and easy.  First, we painted the base with a bright white paint and then utilized Sharpie Paint Markers to define our pet bed. 

Halloween Fun

We turned a tree that was no longer living, and gave it a new purpose. We painted it black and purple and added some decoration. Very Spooky.

Santa Wreath


Getting ready for Christmas, this is our new Santa Wreath. Very easy and inexpensive to create. Hope you enjoy.

Vintage China Cabinet


Here is a Vintage China Cabinet that we found for 25.00 at a local Antique Mall.  With a little elbow grease we helped it to have a new life for a very long time.  We added a black bronzed paint, inside lighting and dishes.  It turned out so cute,  Always have a vision to re-create.

Welcome to our new blog about crafting and creating new and great items for your home.  We both love to find old items and turn them into something new and useful.  Everyone has talent and can be a gifted re-creater.  You must expand your mind, learn to look at things in a different light, and know the resources that are available to you to start a project. 
We will walk through many projects and give detailed descriptions of how to re purpose them into something new and the best places to find items to redo.  Hope you enjoy everything and please feel free to comment and ask questions.  We will post other items too, that pertaining to the arts, we love Christmas paintings that are simple to do and even host "Painting Parties" at times, to help new artists create masterpieces to give as gifts or keep for themselves. 



Here is our first project...........A vintage suitcase found at a local antique mall for $5.00.....Can you envision what our project will be?  Have fun and be creative and we will post the finished project with descriptions and costs of building a luxury item.
