Just for fun projects

I thought I would share a couple of projects that I did this last weekend.  Yes, I actually got to sew for fun!!  I got this idea when I saw this Riley Blake Christmas Banner panel

I don't have anywhere to put a banner, but I so loved the fabrics I needed to get one.  Then it hit me like a bundle of fabric,  the triangles looked like Christmas trees to me and voila'  I had an idea!
This is what I came up with.
 A fun, bright and cheery bed scarf and.....
a festive Christmas throw.  Christmas is on it's way!!  I just love how they turned out!!  I'm still playing around with more ideas on how to use the banner panels.
We will see what comes next.....
Thanks for stopping by!

Here it is!  I love how it turned out!!!  
It took almost 3 cans of spray paint, but it was worth it!  Check out the glass knobs I found!  
Can't wait to put this in my studio.

OK, I'm not much on yard sales.  I've stopped by a few, but never found that super cool, amazing deal, UNTIL.  One that I stopped at had a beautiful, old desk that caught my eye. It was way over-priced for what it was so I decided to leave.  As I was walking back to the car, I saw this small side table that was looking neglected.  So I bought it for $5.

It's 25" square and needed a lot of help.  I brought it home and went to work.   The paint is drying so I will post the pictures of the "After" by Monday.  
Have a great weekend!
