So Kate mentioned that I sort of forget to post pictures of some of my crafty endeavors...which is true. There happens to be a lot of crafting going on around here that never gets blogged about. I guess its partly because I feel like I am being braggy and that no one really cares about silly crafts, or the 27th onesie I made (which I am pretty sure is true...no one could possibly care about that).
The other reason is because I think I don't want to feel like I am doing things just for the sake of blogging. You know what I am talking about. Its funny though...sometimes I feel like people are just so used to catching up with each other through blogs that if we don't blog about something, people just assume it never happened...or are surprised when there are things going on in our lives that weren't (blogged about). But that's a post for a different day.
However, I have to say that some of my favorite blogs are about crafts...sewing, painting, redoing...those inspire me. And really--really is mostly the reason I bother with all of this anyway (blogging). Well that, and barraging you with photos of our child.
Crafts and babies. What else could you need?
So here you go. A craft project that I did. Maybe it will inspire you. I firmly believe that you can paint anything (well except for upholstery...what's up with that Trading Spaces?) In fact I have a collection of frames from junk shops (I know you are shocked) waiting to be painted. But instead I bought this one from IKEA that I have been eyeing for months.
It used to be black...and now it's pink. It took about 15 minutes. And the fabric is just for the sake of the picture (see what I mean about doing things just for blogging sake?) I would really love to figure out a way to put a mirror in it. I know there are ways...I mean a dirt cheap way.
I really kind of love it. Do you think one in every room of my house would be overkill?
