While waiting for the highly anticipated game to begin, I began the beautiful day running a 5k for Palmetto Health's Walk For Life.
This is my 3rd year participating and it's wonderful. The weather is always awesome and it's a way for me to give back and support such a terrible disease, breast cancer. I didn't make my best time, but I felt like a winner none-the-less :).
To continue my productive day, I worked on a couple of crafts. Easy ones, but enough to keep me busy. The first one was a redo of a little drawer-thingy I found at a thrift store. Now if you like chickens, then this was your piece...
I mean, look at the detail!
I know I could have sold it as it, but I saw more for this tragic case of farm decor... I did a little spray painting and wahla!
A much more modern country piece. I'm not sure what I'll use it for, but we'll see.
And the winner is....
Also in the makeover department - trophies! If you haven't see the new thing around town, then you're missing out. Painted trophies. Go ahead, pintrest it. It's a real thing and it's cuuuuuuute!
So, I did a few of my own! I found the baseball one at a thrift store and the cup one came from the Fox for winning a golf tournament. Both were small, but I wasn't looking for the holy grail of trophies for trial one. I grabbed some gold spray paint (actually I have like 6 cans of it as I bought it when it was on sale...shame) and went to town.
The end result is nothing short of awesome! I created a fun little gold vignette to help show it off. Cute right? I paired it with a hat mold, some gold dogs and a picture of my grandparents.
What a fun way to give a new life to something that otherwise would have made it's way to the trash bin. Wouldn't it be fun to do them in a kid's room? Pink for girls, red for boys. FUN! FUN!
And that was my Saturday, folks. Another successful, didn't go to the game weekend. :)
Until next time. I hope everyone is enjoying this incredible weather and getting ready for Halloween! It's just around the corner!!
