Our lockers

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 I can remember to pray for them.

Fun Little do-dads

Some little things I have for my sewing center and my baby girl's toothbrush...a little paint makes everything better.

Invitations and Doodles

Some more Art

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.

Polka dots make everything more fun.

I love these polka dots on an accent wall, with the two large paintings hung over them. This is our playroom.

Abby's Nursery

This is a dear friend's nursery...I love the soft colors she chose...we did verses all around the room and Abby's name right above the crib.

New Life to an Old Front Door

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!

Cheap Holiday Decor

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)

Paint Storage

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.
