More Projects

Nothing warms my heart more then projects!! I love them.

 I got this cute bed on KSL and gave it a facelift.  A cream paint with glaze!  Love how it turned out.  Trying to sell it now.  :)

 My D.I. knife holder.  Hated the Oak.  Paid the $1.  Gave it a red coat of paint with a glaze.  Love glaze!!!


 Halloween 2x4 craft...

 Almost done..


Isn't it cute?!?!?!?!


 I made this cute flower box!!  I need to paint it but I love it!  Also, another entry way stand.  I will paint it and add a hook.  So you can hang any seasonal signs on it in your doorway.  :)

Dallin turns 2!!!!!!!!

Somewhere along the last little while my baby grew up!  He is 2 years old!!!...I love this baby.  We love this baby.  We adore everything he does.  Mickey Mouse is the only show he will watch.  He loves it.  Though he calls Mickey "Bo"  It is hilarious and just another thing we love about him.  So naturally we had to have a Bo party.  Just family and cake.  

Bo cake.

This is his embarrassed face.  He was not quite sure how to handle the singing.  It was hilarious!!  He did better than Brielle at her second birthday, she cried.  :)

HAHAHA.  That face.

He actually blew the candle.  I think Daddy and Dawson jumped the gun and blew it out but he was really gonna do it!!

This is his evil face.  Looks just like his Daddy!


That was yummy....

Cousin Sofia..

Cousin Zane....


Brielle, Cousin Brooke, Cousin Lacee, Auntie Karrah, and Maklee.

Cousin Parker...

Look a CAR!!!!....

Cousins Lyla and Zane, Dawson and Maklee.....

This was a great little party for our Dallin boy. 

Dawson starts Kindergarten

This was a special day for our family.  A day that was once so far away and uncertain.  When Dawson was diagnosed with his brain tumor I was convinced it would come back.  So I lived from MRI to MRI.  First in three month increments.  Then six month.  Now yearly.   I would lie if I said I do not get emotional every time I see him run into kindergarten happy and as normal as can be.  We are forever grateful for our Dawson.    

This is the only picture I got of him smiling.  It is a terrible quality picture but as you see below smiles are hard to come by. 

Forever the entertainer!!!

His fire backpack!!

His crazy grin...

Dawson among his classmates.  Just as any other normal kid.  The greatest feeling in the world.

Brielle starts 2nd GRADE!!!

 Where did my baby girl go?  2nd grade.  Her own fashion opinions.  Her own attitude.  Oh man. 

 Had to have a side backpack!

She is a great big sister and Dallin just adores her!!!!  He waits all day for her to get home.

 Brielle loves her brothers.

2nd Grade and no looking back!

Little Projects...

I have done a few small projects over the course of the summer nothing huge but just to keep the DIYer at bay. 

At the beginning of the summer my sister Karrah and I re-vamped a used changing table.  It was in okay condition to begin with but we did not like the color.  We originally stripped it down and tried to re-stain it but it would not take the stain.  So we just painted it black.  Several coats and then several lacquer coats later and it turned out AWESOME.  I wish I had a finished picture with the cute knobs but I don't.  I will get one. 

 The few scratches it had....

Then I whipped together a valence out of baseboard in about 15 min.  I having been struggling for 6 years on what to do with our sliding patio doors then it hit me.  Duh.  Make a valence just like my other windows.  I got a 1.5 inch dowel and cut it to length.  

Got a set of closet rod holders and some L brackets and it was done.  Whole project cost about $5.  

I had the curtains but I bought the easy slide rings and they work great!...  

Got some gorgeous metal knobs to hold back the curtains during the day....

 Then painted the valence black....

 I did a picture collage...WHICH I LOOOOOOOVE!

Made a blanky for my niece that is coming in December.  

Plus she needed some burp rags....

Most recently my Mom and I painted her garage floor with the epoxy garage floor paint.  It was SUPER easy and went on without any problems.  

It really transformed the entire garage!!!
