before meets after...

i love when other people post their before and
after projects so i decided to get a little thrifty myself!

i found the above canister at Ross on clearance super cheap.
it is a set of 3 but i got a little ahead of my self and didn't
remember to take a before picture until the other two were already painted...oops!
you get the idea by the above picture. quite patriotic, right?

Here is the finished product below!!! i LOVE them!
evidently decorating with numbers is the "it" thing this season.

this bench below was a yard sale find on one of trips to California!
i had big plans for this $20 piece of furniture.... it was originally a plain old oak brown color with some chips and scratches, a little paint and super RAD fabric.... and VOILA!
if we have a girl next i have some amazing plans with this fabric
and a deep purple color as my inspiration for the nursery!

(i haven't gotten around to sewing the top cover but you get the idea!)

Way to go! I'm on the hunt for something similar to your bench. I want a toy box/chest for the baby room!

And I'm excited for your Etsy shop. Let me know if you need any help with your Etsy banner!
