Monsters and Menaces

Our new collection of batts designed and named for various mythalogical baddies. The kids had a great time helping me come up with monsters and color combos for these.

A Fun Project

Started to work on a fun project today. I brought home a new toy from a visit with my mom. It's a Viking Plus! sewing machine! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Squee! Of course, such a gorgeous machine deserves a really cool place to hang out so I picked this baby up at the junk shop downtown. Okay, so it's kind of a mess and a little on the ugly side right here.
But look at how it folds out and there's some really neat storage and shelving inside. So, I thought about what I wanted to do and a few hours later, voila, check out my new baby's home now....

That's a Rustoleum spray paint in a hammered finish. I adore this color! Sonny Boy painted the hardware for me while I was working on the cabinet. Those handles are so cool! It was a glitter Rustoleum in a soft black with silver glitter in it. I love it! Marshall the cat thinks it'll do, too.

Here's a closer shot of the door and the hardware. I'm so thrilled with how this cabinet turned out. As soon as the paint is cured, I'm getting the machine in here and taking it for a test drive!
