Sap Buckets Turned Planters!!

I LOVE These!!
The fellow that works a few doors down makes maple syrup and he had 
some less than perfect buckets he wanted to sell and wondered if we were interested?
My eyes lit up...  I said YES!!!

I decided to make planters out of them! They each have a hole 
in the top back where an S hook can be put for hanging.

I've been seeing a lot of bloggers using stencils and I love the look!
So off to the hardware store I went and found exactly what I was looking for!

Why? Don't know, just thought they would look cool.  
You could have your house number put on them!

I used stencil paint and a stencil brush. This paint takes a few days to dry.

Lucky number 8!

Can you picture chartuesse sweet potato vine hanging 
out with some bright orange and purple pansies?!

Ahh... spring has finally arrived!

They are sitting on this awesome bed bench that my Mom made!

I hope you share in my excitement!!

I'm thinking Funky Junk Donna would like these!

Burlap Coffee Bean Sack Turned Pillow Sham!

I found these burlap coffee bean sacks at a yard sale last summer and 
thought they were really cool . I decided to turn them into pillow shams!

This is how they looked when I began. 
I cut them to size for use as a standard pillow sham.

Once again, I should have taken more during pics : (
I used some pieces of white linen I had left over from another project 
to make a band around the opening and to make some ties.

I wish I had more designs to work with, maybe I'll find some different brands in the future. 
Today I was in Home Goods and noticed they had boxes covered in what looked 
like burlap coffee bean sacks (almost decoupaged). They looked really cool, and may be 
one of my next projects! What a fun idea for storage!

Maybe not the softest thing to lie back on, but certainly cool to look at!

Hmmnn...  what's the word I am looking for?

Nautical-Cottage Style Chair Rehab

Perfect for a sun porch and so comfy!

Here she is before... she's got great bones!
I primed, painted and distressed. 
(I get so into the rehab, I forget to take pics.)

I found this pretty yellow embroidered fabric, perfect for spring!
I made two zippered slip covers for the pillows.

 I love the rope detail on the sides, I painted right over it! 

I  made this pretty little pillow with a ruffle to match 
using the same yellow fabric, along with some vintage fabric.

Thanks for checking her out!
