Some Crafting Stuff

Hello everyone!

Today is my show-and-tell for all of you. I've been crafting a little and I'd like to show you what I've done.

First, for our little home on wheels...
Wheel Cover
I bought some marine-grade vinyl because the sun in South Carolina is wicked on any kind of plastic. I cut a round and a side band. I sewed them together and made a sleeve on the open end so I could hold it on with a drawstring. It went 1800 miles and is still on the camper wheel. Yay!

Next, a few somethings for our bathroom...
Stuff Before Redo
After Painting
I couldn't stand this little etagere any more. I've had it for nearly 30 years and it had to change or go. The wastebasket above got a fresh coat of paint. The little fishies got a white dry-brushing. I should've done it sooner, but I didn't have the nerve to paint them. Glad I did!


Refinished Mirrors
I couldn't stand the little brown wooden mirrors anymore. So I painted and distressed them. I LOVE them now.

And a little something more...
Candleholder with Air Freshener
I saw this craft on a website, which I'll mention more of at a later time. This woman, AJ, has a FABULOUS way with repurposing stuff. I ADORE her website!

Anyhow, this is a cheap-o glass candle stick from a dollar store, an old candle holder and a chunk of light blue ribbon. Inside is a white votive that I had in my candle stash and the blue stuff is crystal air freshener from the dollar store. This is put together temporarily with hot glue. I just found some E-6000 to permanently bond stuff together. I'm going to change out the ribbon for some jute and seashells to make it more 'beachy'. I still need to make curtains and a shower curtain. Then I'll show the whole shebang when It's done. I have another project for this room. I'll show you that later.

Take care.
Happy crafting!!!
