Changes

Before: I picked up this cute tote bag a couple of months ago but it did not close. I think it would be a cute summer bag so...
I cut three velro rectangles
and stuck them to the sides
of the bag.
After:
Viola' it now closes and
no one can get nosy in
my new bag. YEA!
Before:
I have had this tray for
years and wanted some-
thing different to put on
the "wedge" that is goes
with our sectional sofa.
Right now it is our "coffee"
table. Anyway--didn't care
for the bottom of the tray
so...
After:
I looked through my
scrapbook paper stash,
chose a red print, cut it
to fit the bottom of the
tray and taped it into
the bottom. I used tape
so I could chage it again
if I want to.
Before:
I took this off of an old
porch swing that we
had tured into a flower
bench. It was in major
need of TLC--cleaning
and painting so...
After:
I got out some of my
paints and touched
it up here and there.
Now it is clean and
cheerful again. It
will go in the garden
soon.
Before:
I picked the candle
holders at a garage
sale last Saturday.
I bought them to
put on our deck table
but...they were the
same color as our table.
So..
After:
I got a can of black glossy
spray paint out (a bloggers
friend) and painted them.
Here they are last night.
I put them out on the
deck table this morning.
Looking good!
