I know my mom would have killed for it in the 70's but I love it!

I went to a yard sale and it was fill a bag for $1 so I picked out some cute cloths for my daughter and looked over and saw this beautiful thing handing there calling my name. So I kinda shoved it into the bag thinking someday the fabric may be useful....
Then it hung in my closet and my husband made fun of it for looking like a pioneer dress i should wear on halloween and i was just about to throw it out when i thought i could maybe resurrect it.... TA DA!

It fits so cute and I love it Pioneer or not! It cost me $5 after fabric

Furniture Face Lift

This is a cedar chest I repainted for my sister in law. I pretty much love how it turned out!

Now I Wanna Just Sleep In

After a huge burst of ambition I finally finished my bed set. I'll let you in on my secrets of how I made the complete set for $50! Amazing huh? That is why I make things... I made the pin tuck pillow shams out of an old velvet curtain I picked up at a thrift store for $2. I made the flower pillows inspired by none other than target. I learned something useful too.....if you buy the cheep $3 standard pillows and cut them open you'll find a crib sized batting. Cool Huh? It also makes for an inexpensive bag of stuffing. I pick up the duvet cover at a yard sale for $15. Last of all is the bed skirt that I have had in the back of my mind for years now. I stumbled across a pic of one just like it and I was reminded of how much I wanted one so ta da it went perfectly with the whole style I was going for. I used some old sheers I found at the thrifters rock that were in great condition. All together I spent about $50! Can't wait to go sleep in it.
