Day 20- A Hobby of Mine

Well I like to talk. And Blog.



The End.

Ha! Yeah right! I mean I do like to talk and blog and I suppose blogging is sort of a hobby but I got something better up my sleeve. I like to decorate and re-decorate. I like to create cute new things for my home and finding ways to make things prettier. Mr. Superman insists I throw in one of my main weapons is my hot glue gun. Nice. 

One time I had this dream I made my own black leather tufted headboard. So I did it. 


I also turned the wicker chest in my bedroom from this


To this


I also painted this


I used these candle jars (after the candle was done of course) to create some decor. Spray paint, scrap-booking supplies, ribbon, and hot glue. It has Love & Family on the other side.


I found hat boxes and saw wall decor.


I'm also good at thrifting. Like finding some fabulous old leather bound and fabric wrapped books ie. The Davinci Code, Where The Sidewalk Ends, and a great Medical Dictionary (I'm a nerd) at $2 a pop!


I have a ton more pictures I could show but I'll wrap it up. 

What's one of your hobbies?

Laina said...

You did a great job. The headboard is my favorite! I love it! I like to decorate and re-decorate too. I am always coming up with new ideas and I get bored with decor easily. Blogging is also a hobby of mine, borderline addictive. I also rubber stamp to make greeting cards.
