DIY Kind of Weekend

I guess you could say I have been itching for that summer change!  I have been working on little projects here & there.  The first two pictures are from a couple weeks ago...I just forgot to share them.  I re-did up above our microwave.  

 I put everything into this cabinet beside it instead of in the baskets above it.  I love it!
 Gabe & I dug up our potatoes & onions.   Gabe had so much fun seeing everything grown & how it produced actual veggies!

I totally scored this awesome white wicker chair on Friday night at our friends garage sale.
 Saturday morning I was spraying it green!  I LOVE this green color right now!
 I picked up a new cushion at Walmart!  It fits perfectly on my patio!  I got to sit out there this morning with my coffee & bible!  I could listen to the birds chirping & the wind blowing-pure bliss!

I also had this sage green color (boring!) texas star outside that I painted the same color green as the chair to use up the rest of the paint & hung it up on the other side of the patio!  I forgot to snag a picture but it looks great!

Another DIY we did this weekend was this....I started out with 2 plastic flower pots that I purchased at Walmart, 2 silver rings found in the plumbing department at Lowe's & some vinyl for lettering.  Well, needless to say after several burnt up screw tips & a trip to Lowe's we couldn't get through that tiny piece of we ended up just.....

 screwing right through the plastic pot-2 times with the screws.  We drilled right into the wall on the patio.

I cut out some vinyl letters on my cricut and now I have a nice place to catch all those little bottles of bubbles & chalk!
 How cute, right?  (Notice I put the bubbles higher....they have to ask before they get those out, haha!)

I also sewed up some pillows yesterday afternoon for our on-going bedroom makeover.  :-)  It has been a slow, long, process but it is getting there.

Friday afternoon I worked on making up a couple of these to see at out local Farmer's Market at my booth.  They are fabric grocery bag holders.  I actually have 2 of them one hanging in our laundry room & one out in the garage.  I can stuff them full of all those plastic bags you get from the store.  If you are like me you always have good intentions to bring your resuseable know the big stack of them that sit in the garage but seem to forget every single time.  :-/
 I also whipped up some of these to carry at my table as well.  Travel Kleenex Holders.  I have a bunch of fabric that has been left over from different projects so I thought I would make some of these.  How fun!  
Needless to say we had a busy DIY weekend but it was so much fun being able to create things!  We also had a visit from some special to come later.  :-)
