Coffee Cup Cozies

I saw these on Card a la Carte and just had to make some up for Christmas gifts.

I had some leftover felt snowflakes so I made a Winter themed one too!

Yes I am getting ready for Christmas - already done my back to school shopping - and happy to get ahead this year!

A new stool?

Nope it's not new!

It started out as this:

I remembered the BEFORE this time!

And now it looks like this!

Not sure I like the red -
I still have 1 can of black spray paint leftover so you may see this "new" stool post again!

A new bench?

After the success of spray painting my kitchen chairs (see THIS POST)  I've been itching to do something else.

Yesterday the urge to spray paint something was too  I spray painted this wooden Ikea bench. 

Sorry I really suck at taking BEFORE photos!  But the AFTER photos are coming out really nice aren't they?

We've had this IKEA bench forever (maybe you have one too?) and because we kept it inside we never bothered to finish it.  I think we bought it in 1995 and it's been in our front hallway for the last 14 years!

I'm very pleased with how it turned out....seriously I'm looking at everything around my house with renewed interest!

I still have 1 can of spray paint left and my husband has already warned the kids not to sit still for too long or else I might spray paint them!
