- What is your favorite crafting tool or secret weapon? Ooh, do I really have to pick just one? Yikes, I have so many favs! I guess it would be a tie between Mod Podge and Rustoleum Painter's Touch Ultra Cover 2X spray paint. I've just discovered this fabulous spray paint! It's AMAZING! It covers lickety-split and comes in some gorgeous colors!!!
- What is your favorite piece of décor in your house? Definately my trash-to-treasure radio cabinet!!! I absolutely love that piece!
- What is your best piece of tween/teen advice for everyone with kids entering this phase? Yikes! I've yet to figure this one out! Consistancy and sticking to your guns, I'd say. Don't let them break you!!! If anyone has any other advice on this subject, I'd gladly listen!!!
- What is in the cup holder of your car? Some change, a gas station receipt, and an empty Dunkin Donuts coffee cup.
Now for the tray that was love at first site. I mean come on, this tray was a Dollar Tree cookie sheet. If you can paint and stamp you can do this!
I love when people take the Trash to Treasure challenge and make ew things turn in to ah things! Dawn found this old radio cabinet by the side of the road and gave it a beautiful makeover.
Had enough, too bad! ;) I just had to show these before and after shots of her bathroom door and porch light re-dos. First off, the bathroom door...
I am particularly in love with the fact that she spray painted the doorknob!! Why this never crossed my mind, I don't know. I have slowly been buying new door knobs as I could afford them to replace the ugly brassy ones in the house. DUH. Why not instead buy a can of spray paint for the same price as one knob and give them all a facelift. This is why I love you guys! You give me those light bulb moments!
And the same thing with the ugly porch light. Again, we replaced out hideous lights. Why did I not think of this?!
This next bit is Dawn's room reveal. She tells you where she got each piece and some of them may surprise you or make you want to sift through other people's unwanted stuff. Bet you can't guess where that white cabinet came from. It is her cousins old hutch top. AMAZING!
Great ideas Dawn! You are now entered in to the Hall of Fame as Tipster of the Week!
