Some of my DIY projects....

Aloha blog friends!  These are not necessarily my most recent endeavors, but I took some time to upload several photos this morning so that I can begin posting again.  The first photo is the up-cycled filing cabinet project that Chip helped me with prior to our move....I was an ugly (and moldy) mess when we picked it up....but with some bleach, paint, wallpaper and molding it is now a beauty!  I used the same treatment on the adjacent drawers to my craft table and LOVE how it turned out.  The two tier stand is just two dishes from Target, a wood candle stick from the craft store, paint and glue.  Easy peasy and cute!  The twine flowers in the bottom dish are also a diy project that were really fun to make--even though I have no idea what I will use them on....YET ha!  Finally super simple magnet board made from a peice of galvanized metal, scrapbook paper and a frame to hold my movers and shapers dies.  Hope you enjoyed seeing these projects and that you will not just "pin" your ideas but put some into practice!
I have been busy with getting my house to look more like a home, volunteering more time at my church and dealing with all the day to day "stuff" that we all have, but will be more faithful to not only blog but visit and comment as well.  THANK YOU to those of you who keep up with me and check in on me from time to time---it has blessed me more than you know!
