Every year (usually summer) I have a big 2 day yard sale at my house. A lot of families bring their stuff priced and ready to sell. That week end is this week end. Friday and Saturday (23 & 24 Sept.) from 8-2. Want to sell? Let me know and bring your things tagged with your name and price. The more the merrier :) (Call with questions @ 572-2955.)
Since I am getting my garage ready, I decided to fix a few things on my blog. (I will post "What I Buy Wednesday" next Wednesday.)
Many posts ago I showed you a very big frame with an unattractive picture that I had been waiting to go on sale (at a thrift store). I finally found the very large frame I wanted (needed) for $15.00 that looked like THIS.
|(Large ugly frame I needed for an idea.)|
Here is what I did. I framed my 1960's DISNEYLAND map, and used it as a (giant) scrapbook.
I made copies of some of our fun Disney pics from thru the years (1983-...), and backed them with bright solid cardstock. Then I just taped them on. (The frame has acrylic instead of glass making it lightweight.) And hung the GIANT picture in the grandkids room.
|(OF COURSE I put the pictures in the correct land :)|
|Free, ugly, old dresser.|
I have enjoyed this in my kitchen. It stores my ramekin collection, the Popsicle trays (when not filled), the electric griddle for pancakes (in a pillowcase), a couple of my more often used silicone baking pans and my container of kid's decorative sandwich cutters.
During the week I keep the fruit there. On Sundays I put the salad bar there.
Yep. I like it. And it was free.

If you want me to post the steps of how I painted the faux granite
just let me know, and I will post it.
