Father’s Day unexpected gift

On Father’s Day, our fabulous neighbor invited my husband, my father-in-law and my daughter to go on a father/daughter fishing trip SO I got the morning all to myself! I guess that makes up for my Mother’s Day spent moving into our house!

It was a delicious treat and I got straight to work on some more decoupage projects. Bear with me…I know I’m obsessed but it makes me happy so I’m going with it.

I wanted to make another adorned bottle but this time with more earthy colors…

I used a larger bottle this time.

Figured out my elements.

And voila! Another pretty bottle. Such fun.

My second project was a thrift store find. I got this mirror for 99 cents. It’s pretty cool as is, but it doesn’t go with my palette so I re-vamped it.

I wanted to do a shabby chic feel…soft and feminine. The vintage floral works well with the silver frame.

This was easy and really rewarding.

Okay, well I’m sure you will be seeing more projects in the future. While Grace was in school this morning, I was roving the antique stores and found some really sweet treasures!

Look around your house…I bet there is something that is just begging for a little decoupage love. If not, hit your closest thrift store and you surely find some suffering tray or mirror that desperately needs your help!
