Oh my gosh, I completely forgot that song existed until I was trying to think of a title for this post. Reading Rainboooooooow, good times.
Now that I got that out of my system… A PROJECT!
After being so heavily inspired by these Recycled Magazine Collages, I wanted to make something similar for my craft area (which I’m DYING to show you, but it’s not quite finished). Instead of taking five years to pick out magazine pages to use, I opted for a few sheets from my gargantuan paper collection.
Forgive the imperfections. As I was cutting out these little suckers, American Idol was on in the background. I kept looking up at the tv and criticizing the contestants and had to remind myself that, OH! You have a pair of sharp scissors in your hand!
I may have maimed a few butterflies in the process.
Being that I’ve been in a super crafty (and nesty!) mood lately, I figured it was about time to give my little vanity chair a makeover. I’ve never recovered anything, so I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to turn out…
A little black spray paint and a major case of trigger finger later (staple guns are serious business, man), I have a much prettier place to sit and put on my makeup.
And umm, I just have to say how incredibly addicting that fabric is. I went back to the fabric store and bought another yard — okay, two yards — of it and covered some cork board (which you can see on the table in the picture), and have been trying to figure out something else to do with the rest because it is just SO DARN CUTE. That was the longest sentence ever. Anyway… Ideas? :)
