About Me

I'm a 'stay at home mom' of 3 who loves to make things out of anything and everything. There are 3 times a year that are my favorite: Christmas, our Beach Trip and the local Bulk Pick Up time where I can always find wood, furniture, etc. Some of what I make was free from the side of the road or from my Grandparents farm and sometimes salvaged pieces from something that's broke heading for the trash. I like looking online to get craft ideas and hope I can spark a creative idea for you! I also sale Vintage Hat Reproductions that I make in my Etsy Store 'In The Makings", just click on the first widget to the right and thanks for looking!

My Tribute to Professor Snape

This was a regular mirror that already had these vases glued on, it was used flowers flowers, but to me they looked like potion bottles, I didn't have any paint stripper but saw online to use EasyOff stove cleaner to strip the paint,,which works! After I scrapped the paint off, there's the shiny coating, and used half water & clorox(store brand) sprayed in just for a second and got the spots. I did that part over the sink so i could have water to rinse off the bleach real quick. The bottle labels were a templet from online and soaked in concentrated tea to give the old look.
