Where Are You?

Ok, so I know I missed FQF (which stinks because I have a super adorable thing I made) and I’m going to miss weekend sweets, but it’s because I’ve met my image quota here on blogger so I’m switching over to a self-hosted blog with a new look! See you again really soon (hopefully by next FQF)! Thanks for reading!

Corner Table Makeover

Corner Table Makeover

This great little corner table was given to me by my parents when I moved out of the house. I love it’s shape, but the peeling stain wasn’t very appealing.

Unflattering Dress to Skirt Refashion

Unflattering Dress to Skirt Refashion

I’ve been going through my closet and taking out all the things that I like, but never wear. This dress was one of those things. It’s really pretty off, but on, the dress was too big and monochromatic for my tastes. So, instead of letting it get dusty in my closet, I did a quick refashion to turn it into a beautiful skirt!  Before and After   Materials:  Old knit dress you don’t mind cutting up (one with a defined waist...
