What a weekend.

On Saturday the Be Crafty studio was filled with painted chairs and vintage treasures. It was so fun collaborating with my friends from The White House boutique. Our friend Rosie came and took photo’s and I can’t wait to share them with you soon, I just thought I would tease you with one of our favorite displays using MOST of the chairs at the studio.

Imagine if chairs could talk, and tell us all the stories that were told . I can’t wait for new stories to be told as these chairs venture off to their new homes.

Last night, on a whim I stopped into the thrift store for a quick look. And by quick, I mean I ran right to the furniture area.  Of course there was two of the cutest chairs just sitting there waiting to be taken home for a makeover. I grabbed them, dragged them to the checkout and home we went.

I always love a good before and after photo. Sometimes I forget to take a before, so while I waited in line I took a quick phone photo . I might have texted a few friends, teasing them with my new finds.

A quick tip:  I LOVE these new mini paint brushes at ikea. They work great for small area’s like spindels and hard to reach area’s that a normal big brush can’t get.  The great part is they are cheap. For under $2 you get a variety pack so you can share with your kids too .

If you are wanting to start painting furniture, I challenge you to start with chairs. They are easy to paint, and don’t take long.

Happy Tuesday Friends.

Over the last few weeks I have been doing a lot of traveling and getting to hangout with friends whom I typically don’t get to see everyday, which makes for lots of fun photos to scrapbook. Today’s photo might be one of my favorites from a recent road-trip my friend Katie and took to Utah.  We are so out of character which makes it such a fun photo.

There is just something so special about creating and gifting a pretty package. Sometimes it’s the smallest gift inside, but giving a gift that is well thought of can sometimes mean the most. Today I am so excited to share with you this simple gift I created using a re-used bag and Maggie’s new Confetti collection.

The confetti collection has so many fun papers to use for making pretty packages and birthday presents. Hop on over to Maggie’s blog to see more of this pretty package and how you can create your very own.
