Trash to Treasure

I finally finished by 2nd Easter card and thought I would show it today.  I sent this one to our
13 year old Grandson and I thought he would appreciate a little Easter humor. 

Karen Burniston does a fabulous job in her tutorial to show you how to make this type of Slimline card-
check it out here-

I have spent most of my type working on making items from TRASH to TREASURES!  I thought I would share a few pictures of my projects.

This is my haul from a shopping trip to Goodwill!  

I painted this beer carrier white - distressed it a little and then used my Iron Orchid Designs Crockery stamp on both sides!  I love how it came out!

I put a little burlap in the bottom and will use it for the 2 bottles below that I painted white and decoupaged the labels that you see below!  Don't you love that bee!!!

Here is a frame that was gold and I have painted it white for a French Country or farmhouse look.

I sanded down the detail on the frame and used a wet wipe to bring out more detail.  I
haven't decided what I will put in the frame but will be sure to post a picture once I have finished it. 

This is one of my favorite projects!  I took a silver plated tray and painted it with white Chalk paint.  Then I decoupaged it with a print I found on line.

Lastly, I worked on this cute metal plant holder.  I painted it white and used a little bit of color to highlight the cut outs.  I have loved working on these "treasures"!
  We are preparing to move back to Maine in the next couple of weeks.  I have had a really fun time here in Florida!  Even though I was sick with Co-Vid and ended up with pneumonia too!  I am grateful that I am fully recovered and that both hubby and I have gotten our shots!!   I pray that all of you are healthy and safe too!!
