So I know lately I've been doing mainly cooking and scrapbooking blogs. Where is all the crafty stuff, you might be wondering? I do have some projects on my list of things to do, but I just don't feel like starting them yet for a variety of reasons. First, I really have no room to hang or put anything new that I might make. Second, since my husband and I are trying to sell our place, we need to keep it looking spotless - basically as if no one were living there - so a craft project might just create all sorts of new clutter. I don't think there is a third reason, so I'll just say, if you want to see more craft projects, then pray that my husband and I can sell our current place in a decent amount of time so that we can move into a new, bigger place!!!
Speaking of things I wish I had room for - check out this gorgeous fireplace that Erin (and her hubby) over at Rare and Beautiful Treasures put together. Oh how I would love to have a fireplace and mantel!
They found the mantelpiece at a scrapyard, then repainted it. They also adhered those neat tiles themselves and added the mirror up on top. Fantastic!
Now that's a true do-it-yourself project! Have any of you undertaken anything similar? I'd love to see the results of your hard work!
