Some UFO's Finished

I decided I would not post until I got some UFO's finished up after we visited last. I promise to make this post short and sweet. Reminder I will be drawing my winner tomorrow for my Follower Giveaway. If you haven't signed up please do!

Alright, I went to my workshop, OK basement, and grabbed a few things I've had in a tub to redo.

These are those really cheapo wood boxes made from the flimsiest (is that a word?) wood. LOL. They look really awesome now... thrift to fabulous! I just slapped some stain on them and called it good.



Then I also had a cheesebox that I bought from the Goodwill awhile back. I finally decided on a color... grey... the one side of the box part is broken, but when the lid is on you can't tell.

Before:




After:



These two babies are thrift store finds as well. I'm keeping the round cutting board (it already has a home on my buttery shelves) but will be selling the candle holder...



Last but not least I painted this sign. The words and leaves are actually cut out. It is awesome! This is for sale $15 plus shipping. I will even prim it up a little if you would like me to if you buy it. :)



Other than that I worked this last entire weekend. However, I have designed some new smaller stitcheries and am working on getting them stitched up. I am waiting on an "AH HA" moment on the one because I can't decide on a border for it. The other one is about half way stitched. I will try to get them stitched up and out on pattern soon.

I just wanted to show you what one of my followers did with my free pattern... It is available by purchase click here to see :) Scroll down the page to see it and other wonderful offerings!

Thanks for visiting and I will see you tomorrow for the announcement of the winner!

Great jobs! It's good to know you're getting things accomplished. I've been dragging furniture all over the house all day, and I still don't like the way it's coming together. Maybe tomorrow I'll look at it afresh and get it all together! Living on hope for that! Your follower did a great job with your freebie. have a wonderful week, Mary!
