We got these lockers for free from a business that was closing. I used the same paint as on our front door and some chalk board paint to make it useful. I love putting pictures of our friends on this...so I can remember to pray for them.
Here are some little doodles that cooked up. 2'x2' of a menu made of a board from Home Depot...I used the middle with chalkboard paint to write what's for dinner. Southern Sayings are always fun. Finally, the "A" is for a sweet little girl, Ainslee who lives in Little Rock.

I wanted to add some spunk to our front door without breaking the bank. So, I got some peacock blue paint and chalkboard paint...and went to town. Love it. It was about $15 project. I love the chalkboard idea...because you can use it for every season and party!

This monogram pumpkin I used upholstery tacks that I had on hand. I got this idea from a magazine that my friend, Mrs. Susie Walker did. (Project total: $3)
The Christmas frame was a picture of my dad and his brothers that I inherited. I spray painted the frame red and painted the mat to coordinate. (Project total: $1)
Okay, so I must be on an organizational craze! I have just finished turning the closet that houses HVAC unit and water heater into a dual purpose room. It now houses all painting supplies. I love to paint so much that I tend to get a little disorganized, but never again, thanks to a gallon of grey floor paint, this room is now clean and user friendly.

Okay, so yesterday...my hubbie bubbie and I tackled our garage...all of our shelving we got for free (hand-me-downs and side of the road pick ups). I used the paint with primer already in it, to quickly tackle the paneling. We organized his tools, sports equipment, and garden items...and even made room for my car...yip-eee...we've never had a garage before!

I have painted every surface in this guest bathroom (minus the toliet :) I intend to add "feet" to the black cabinet to make it look like a piece of furniture....and I also changed the light fixture (this one costs $12). I totally redid this bath for about $75. My friend, Mrs. Julia gave me the idea to have friends sign the walls...kids love this.
Okay, I've just come from the best baby shower ever! And it only cost about $30 for each hostess. Susie Walker is a "hostess with the mostest", and I think she should write a book on how to throw a proper southern party! She's amazing! The punch was ginger ale and pink lemonade (with a cute bow around it). The door was dawned with vintage baby photos in the wreath. I created a monogram piece of artwork for baby Madison that we displayed in the foyer and the invitations (the original painted with mat for everyone to sign). The table's centerpiece was a work of art created from vintage baby finds by Mrs. Susie Walker....you go girl, I learn something every time I come to one of your parties.
