The Wizard has a new home

So recently I told you about a hutch top we bought for $9.99 here. We also had an end table we picked up on the side of the road somewhere (that I cannot find a picture of) that we used for this project. My fabulous husband built a base, added the legs and TaDa!
It's my new Hutch to hold all of my Wizard of Oz Memorabilia! Well ok, it still doesn't all fit, but more of it fits in this one than the last one!

I had acquired a toddler size pair of ruby slippers somewhere along the line and took those out, added them to a frame I had painted and TaDa, I have a new wall hanging!
I adore those hanging shoes! The only problem I encountered was how to cover up the insides of the shoes. Of course my head jumped to paint and stuck there so I had to call my Mommy who suggested stuffing them, Genius! I added the birdhouse sign above it that says "There's no place like home" to tie in all the birdhouses that I also have in my sun room.
I hung this poster up only to have to move it to another wall so I could fit my other two pictures up. My walls are mostly windows and I'm running out of room!
And since one thing leads to another and I moved my Wizard of Oz stuff out of the entry hall, I had to move a few other things around to dress my entry hall which is still a work in progress.

Yep, a lot of empty frames while working on placement. I'll work on filling them later ;)

The Little Kitchen

Last April was big trash pick up week in a town near us. Read that as FREE garage sale week for me. We picked up several items you can see here. I finally finished and photographed one of those finds I did for my granddaughter.

 You can see it was covered in stickers, crayons, markers, and it was dirty!
I scraped off all the stickers and went to cleaning the crayons and markers. They wouldn't come off! So I thought I'd try a little oops, but ummm, oops, it took the original design off too. *sigh* Oh well, who needs a pink and blue and green kitchen anyway, right?
 So I went about painting the entire kitchen. I wasn't sure what to do about the "burners" but since I was out in the garage, I noticed one of those mosquito coil things and knew that would be perfect! I glued a cork on one side of it, dipped it in paint, and voila! New Burners!
I think she now has a kitchen any 2 year old would be proud to own, don't you?

And it was only FIVE dollars!
Can you believe it?
