Little projects I have finished

We have been working 30 days straight on our house now and there is light at the end of the tunnel.  We have actually gotten the main floor done with the remodeling.  All that is left to do in this area is unpack and decorate (the fun stuff)
In the midst of all the painting and scraping and floor installing, I have managed to finish a couple of cute little projects for my bathroom.
I did not get a before picture of this cabinet but you can imagine what it looked like.  Just an ordinary bathroom cabinet in an oak color.
Here is what it looks like now.
And the cute little knobs
I even get a little burst of color when I open the cabinet in the morning
Love my new cabinet.
I also made this mirror.  I was going to buy a similar one at Home Depot  a few days before I found this one.
I found this beauty at a garage sale for $10.  Beats the heck out of $99 that I would have paid at HD.
Here is the before
Yes I started painting it before I got a good before picture but you get the idea.
Here is the after
Loving the detail on the top
Way more charm and character than the one I was going to get at the hardware store. 
As Always, Karie


  1. Love the mirror! Yard sales are the best!
