Trash to treasure!

I was determined to have a productive day, yesterday...!! I have been procrastinating a ton of little projects forever (yes, procrastination IS my middle name, you know?), and decided to finally tackle a few!!

An ugly little stool got a makeover with some paint and a piece of vintage barkcloth, and here it is!

A little box found at a garage sale also got some new paint and a cute little print!

I found this great fireplace screen at a sale for next to nothing, but I felt it needed some "umpf"... so a piece of vintage wallpaper later, it turned out pretty cute!!

Finally, a cute bench got a makeover with a piece from an old blanket. I love the way it turned out!!!

Come back soon to see what I do with this canopy...!!!
