A Little Shelf Redo

OMG I almost forgot to take a before pic, as I started to spray it I remembered to take a pic! I bought this at Marshalls, I thought it looked like an old peice so I snatched it up thinking it would look pretty painted white, I also added some rose appliques to each side of the front the top ones were already on it. I'm still trying to get my house finished in between my kids and a billion others hanging out so back to painting!

The finished shelf................
The appliques that I glued on, I still need to touch these up a little.

My New Color!

I am having major comp problems here again so I am going to make this quick before it cuts me off again. I painted my dining rm light silver sage, it looks really blue though. I have to get used to it but I do like it . What do you all think do ya like it?? I am still playing around with the decor, did you notice my oval mirror over the fireplace remember it used to be gold I painted it white, I have more to show you but my house,the part you can't see in the picture, is still a mess, LOL.
The paint color is LIGHT silver sage from Restoration Hardware they also have silver sage which I don't think would look quit as blue but my son liked this one so I gave it a try(;
The red & white polk a dot dishes came from Homegoods.
The slipcovers are from Target.

My Cake Stands!

I had so much fun making these cake stands, although I can't take credit for the inspiration, I was looking at blog yesterday and saw a tutorial she did I believe in April 09 on how she made these cake stands, soooooo I thought I have to give it a try, hers came out much better, Holly has such beautiful millenery and fabric but I used what I could find, I do think they are so sweet , I made them with wooden candle sticks and the boxes that you can get at the craft store, the stand with the glitter, I cut out thick paper in a scalloped design and glued it around the edge, then just painted and glittered it like the rest. For the full instructions you can visit Holly and don't forget about my giveaway, todays the last day to enter (;

My Fake Door

I've got to tell ya the no shopping thing(the economy) is really cramping my style over here, I'm struggling to find things to blog about is anyone else feeling the same way or is it just me?? Well I don't think I have ever shown you my fake door, LOL, I know it's kind of weird but I saw a real one in a Pottery Barn catalogue and I asked Jeff if he could make me one to look like the real thing so we used left over bead board paneling and some wood and there you have it my door that is suppose to look like it closes in front of my real door or something like that, hahaha. By the way this is my entrance into my house from my garage, it opens into my kitchen. I hope everyone has a great weekend(;
