landing


hello! hope everyone had a nice christmas...

just wanted to share a little project that i did a few weeks ago...

i wanted to rearrange our landing area below the stairs (i bought a new dresser for our bedroom, so this small one needed a home...it really probably doesn't fit this area so great, but there is no where else for it, and i love it, so it will not be finding a new home!), so i did this:

Photobucket
the vase is just full of sticks from outside, and i framed another piece of handmade paper i had left over from this table i painted. the drawing above the framed paper is a sketch i did in a life drawing class in college.


it used to look like this:

anyway, i bought that little garden stool a few weeks ago at ross, and turned it upside down so that it would hold an umbrella. the only problem was that it was white on the bottom. so, i did what i always do and pulled out the paint and brush...

i just painted all the white parts black...

worked like a charm!

  6. Love the idea of the upside down garden stool as umbrella holder. This is the second time I've seen it this week, so I'm taking it as a sign that I might need one too!
