Egg Cabinet Made Chic

Hello, Lovelies! The hubby and I found this little cabinet for $2.99 at good ole' GW last weekend...


Can you guess what it is? For a city girl, this one took me by surprise.


It's an EGG CABINET! Who knew?! It was filled with lots of plastic eggs and an egg timer in the drawer (I kid you not). 

Whoever had painted this little thing, did a great job, with a tractor and other farm related pictures all around.

But I had an idea in mind for it, so I removed the little wooden knobs and chicken wire and primed...


Covered the front with some pretty, floral paper a friend gave me, painted the chicken wire, & added new knobs...


Then I covered the inside of the drawer with paper...


But what was I going to do about those holes on the inside?

Mod Podge the top shelf with pretty card stock and leave the bottom holes for nail polishes, of course!


It now sits on my vanity and holds my little pretties! 


So chic and feminine, just how I like it!

Doll Up Your Bottles!

Hello, Lovies! It's been a terribly long time since I last blogged and I've definitely missed connecting with my precious friends and fellow bloggers. I still check in with you ladies to see your latest projects and am always impressed! Today I'd like to share a super duper simple project I did quite some time ago. 
If you know me, you know that I never turn down a shapely bottle. There's so many beautiful, romantic styles of decorating them that I just love, but these have more of a farmhouse feel. The twine ones are a little time consuming, but very fun to display pretty flowers and other what-nots...


Turn your plain bottles into chic accessories by wrapping them in twine or lace. 
The twine is held on to these bottles with hot glue and for the lace there was no sewing or gluing involved! The hem of an old lace curtain panel fit perfect over these bottles.
I'd normally add a tag of some sort or a burlap flower to add flare, but unfortunately, I sold these before I could get to it. My customer wanted them just like they were.


For this one, I started by wrapping a thick strip of burlap around the bottle and hot glued it in place. Then I added the top layer of twine, then the middle, and then to the bottom.

You get the picture. 
 Do you like bottles too? How do you like to doll them up?
