Paint Paint Paint!!!

Well, I said I would be back and I am! It was a rough day today! Our 2.5 year old kitty, Hazel, got sick Thursday and we had to put her down today. So sad. At least she is not suffering anymore!! We will really miss her. So will Harrison! I hope he won't be too lonely!!

We will miss you Hazel!!


Before all this happened, I was busy painting around here!The weather has been so nice, so I could spray paint outside!! I don't know if you remember this star candle holder I bought sometime in the summer?
Well, I painted it and had it everywhere. I couldn't get it to look good! I thought it looked silly where ever I had it. So....I might have broke the candle part off....and stuck it on the wall. I love it.
The next stuff I painted was from my great deal at Winners. Remember all this stuff?
I took this guy
and gave it a nice fresh coat of paint and a sanding
love it! It now lives in my bedrooom
(don't mind my empty frames!)
Next up, this white frame
I added dried black beans. Yes, I said beans!
This picture was taken at night, and is just awful. But I love the way it looks. I swear! ha You'll see!!
Next we have these lovely glass dishes
I gave them a fresh coat of grey (glossy) which I didn't look at before I bought it. I am not much of a "glossy" girl. Owell. I think they still look great! They do not have a home as of yet, but I will find one!
Remember this glass candle holder?
You guessed it, PAINT
Love it!! It looks great. So that is it. I told you I was busy painting!! I have yet to paint the mirrors in the top picture. I needed to get a mini screw driver to remove the mirrors. I got one today, so I will be at it soon!

On another note, look what Mike's gramma gave us
Isn't it cool? She said it came from the old highschool, and was grandpas. So cool! Harrison thought it was cool too! (of course)
I think he is always around because he likes his picture taken! hahahahah
His new favourite thing is to attack my hair clip when he is on my shoulder
so playful!

Well, there you have it. See what you can do with a little paint?


  1. I like the grey glossy look!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about Hazel. We just got a kitten and we've grown so close to her already!

    I love all your projects. Things always look better with a fresh coat of paint.

  3. I am sorry that you lost your beloved pet.

  4. I am so sorry about your darling Hazel.

    All of your projects turned out so great! It still amazes me how a piece can completely transform with simply a different color. Thanks for linking up to Be Inspired today!


  5. I'm so sorry about your kitty! That's always tough.

  6. So sorry to hear about your cat. So sad.

    I love what you did with all those things you found. They have a totally new life. I love them.
