My New Shabby Chic Craft Room

Goodwill Finds

I thought I would share a couple of goodwill finds that I found for my new room :)

At first I thought this was a bunny but after really looking at it I think it's a girl lol...either way it's cute!

This phone was very yellowed from smoke, so I cleaned it off and it is still yellow so the white spot on the cord is from me deciding what type of paint I want to use on it to make it white. The silver stands out because that part is actually done :D .......gotta love T!M lol I used silver alcohol ink :D

This is crooked in the picture but you get the idea lol
My Awesome friend Jill found the shelf at goodwill and I found the tins :)

I found the runner, the vase, the bottles and the mini album set all at goodwill too! I am using the mini albums to put my small $1 clear stamps in :)......and the greens in the picture suck lol, the runner and the wall are actually much nicer in person.

Shoe Pictures

I thought since I used one of these pictures for my profile picture I would make this my first post :) Cindi and I were out shopping one day after not seeing each other in forever and we ended up getting matching shoes and then having a fun photo shoot with them! So I recently got this program called Color Select Studio that I have been wanting forever, well it changes your pictures black and white and then you just take the little tool and drag it over what you want to put color back into. So that's what I did! I wanted to still be able to see the pink in our shoes :) I then took these old mirrors that I had found a goodwill years ago and painted the frames white, distressed them, and then applied a coat of crack paint, (I just love Tim Holtz!) and then put the pictures right on top of the mirror  and hung them in my new shabby chic scrap room!

This is just one of the projects I will be sharing with all of you :) And when I can figure out how Margie put all of her room pics in one folder I will do that too, but for now I have started a slide show below that I will keep updated as I take more pictures. If you go to Margie's blog (link on the left side under favorite blogs) and go about half way down her blog you will see photo albums with her room pictures in them....she was my inspiration for changing my room!

Trying Again!

Well the other day I started a blog because I figured all the cool scrapbooking people had one so I need one too. Well they all use Typepad so that's where I went, well after a couple of post and a lot of searching I couldn't find any of the cool things I wanted on my blog like a photo album, links section, etc. So I did a search and found this site, so far I am liking it much better although I still haven't found an add-on for a photo albums section but I figure worst case scenario I can post a link to my Webshots albums :)
So I hope you all enjoy my blog, I will be sharing my new room, altered items, scrapbooking pages and more!
