Finished Project Two!

Hope you all had a lovely New Year! As aforementioned I intend on finishing projects that should have been finished long ago as my New Year not-resolution. I think I am off to a good start with the globe lamp and moved onto another project.

One thing I have learned in moving around and living in small quarters is how to make do and repurpose. Years ago I found a lovely chenille bedspread on ebay for under 10 dollars back in the day when you could still find things for cheap on ebay. It has been sitting on the end of Rosemary's bed since we moved here, but never looked quite right. Then a stroke of genius occurred...a shower curtain!, love, love! I found metal grommets on clearance at Jo-Ann's the other day for $3.50 and used that for the holes for the shower curtain rings.
One more repurposed item I love in my bathroom is my ladder shower curtain holder.
My poor husband...he hates all my antique/ vintage/  upcycled things. I tried to explain the concept of the distressed look and he likened it to a frazzled woman (which could be me some days). But he's a good sport and I get away with a little bit of it.
And so here I am one day into the new year and have finished another project! Now off to finish some orders from my etsy shop!
