CMA Awards and projects

The CMA awards was a blast and we ended up on TV! This picture was sent to me by my Sis-in-law! Did you get to watch it? On the right is my niece Olivia. My daughter was in rehearsals at college and couldn't make it. I have to say it is usually better live! My favorite thing of the night was seeing Lionel Ritchie singing again! Carrie was great as usual and the two together, Carrie and Brad Paisley, were hysterical! The Band Perry took home a bunch of awards. Glen Campbell got recognized as a life time achievement.  All and all it was a very entertaining night!

I have a Giveaway going on right now for a handmade ornament and handmade ruffle scarf. Please enter! You have a great chance of winning. Hint: Those that enter will get a surprise.

My project today is a mantle that I got from my sister. I knew I was going to use it for my Christmas Holiday Open House.


This was plain and boring oak. When painted and distressed it transformed the piece. Painting old wood pieces gives it new life.

I found this cubby and it was just so dark I almost didn't get it. It had a heart door I removed because cubbies are so big right not I thought this could be useful.

Painted and distressed it in white and got another transformation.

Great for collections
I love paint and changing a look. Transform something today. I am always amazed in how paint changes everything!

Don't forget to enter the giveaway!!!

Enjoy Your day!

Oh that looks like so much fun! I DVR'd the CMAs because my husband was traveling and we want to watch them together. We will try to watch most of it tonight - after Rules of Engagement that is!
