Dining Chairs Redo

 This past couple  months my kitchen has been getting a makeover.   Well actually it start over a year ago when I painted some of my kitchen cabinets a distressed black, then in July I finally got my Husband to help my tear up the dirty white tile floor.  WOW!!!  that was a huge job.  You see most contractors will nail/screw the  tile backer board to the sub-floor and then mortar the tile to the backer board.  But not in our house.  The backer board was almost mortared, which made it incredible hard to get off.  After a 1 1/2 of hard work, dust and an inoperable kitchen, we were ready to put the new floor in. I love it!!!!

 So fast forward to this past week, I started noticing lots of dirt and grime on the uphlostered chairs I have for a dining table (which we never use, that's because our island is big enough for our family of 6 to eat of meals at.)  and I wanted a change, so I head to the locate fabric store and found a striking b & w zebra print at a really good price.  Last night armed with a screwdriver and a staple gun, I started tackling this redo and I am so happy with how they are turning out.  I can't wait to get them all finished!!!

Today I want to give you a tour of my craft room.

My craft room is never clean enough to get pictures to show you where all the magic happens.  While it was pretty clean the other day so I snapped a few picture...well actually I just moved some of the clutter around so it doesn't show in the pictures.

First, here's the latest piece I bought when I spent the day with my girlfriends at Ikea a few weeks back  I love it.  It works perfectly for all my fabrics.  I love seeing all the colors on the fabrics; it hopes get my creative juices flowing.

I found these adorable words: CRAFT, SEW, and CREATE.  They weren't all the right colors of my room, but that's the beauty of spray paint.  They add so much to the room.

Next is my cutting table.  I've had this for about 1 1/2 years.  A friend of mine, Nat, was remodeling her kitchen and was going to throw out her old cabinets.  At the same time, I found a blog that had a posting about a crafting table they made from some old kitchen cabinets...a lightbulb went off in my head.  I had Mike screw the cabinets together and I painted them to my :)

It works great and it's at a perfect height for me to use it as a cutting table and to do my other crafts.

Note the pictures hanging on the wall... my twins made those at school!!! They were the right colors for this room, so I just had to put them in here.

Finally, here's my sewing table.  I love having everything I need at my fingertips.  

I hope you like my craft room as much as I do.  I am so blessed to have this room all to myself; a place where I can close the room and not have to see the mess that I usually leave behind. :)

I Fell in Love in Another one of my Bags

A few weeks back, I participated in Tip Junkie's Birthday Bash and I was surprised with one of my own customers, Kate won the bag.  Here's the bag she designed which also matches her camera strap she won from Priddy Creations (she's one lucky girl!!!). I think I need to make another one for myself. :)  I hope Kate LOVES it as much as I do.

The front of the bag has two pockets for business cards, memory cards, etc.
Inside there's places for two lens or a len and flash, plus the camera.
The large pocket on the back of the bag - great for camera manual, batter charger, remotes, etc.
Open pocket.

Congrats again on winning the Posies Bag, Kate!!!
