Tossed and Turned Tuesday–Scrape up your Scraps!

I’m just gonna be honest with you. I work, I’m a mom, I’m tired and I complain a lot but all in all, I’m very, very lucky!  Hello, melodramatic! That being said, I will guarantee you that my posts are “what you see is what you get”. So most of the time, they are far from the finished product and nowhere near all the other great furniture you see out in the blog world, but the reality is, I’ll show you what I got, when I got it! (And I’m no pro but I’m pretty good)

Also, If you follow me, you know I don’t pay high dollar for any of my furniture. In fact the highest I go is usually the ten dollar range and if I paid – twenty – wow you better believe I have plans for it!!

So for all of you frugal friends out there, let me show you my version of scrapbooking!


Yes these are fabric scraps my friends! Different twist using fabric huh!


Tons of pictures to follow:




Again, painting not complete, but you get the idea Winking smile



Inside material!

I think it looks pretty darn good myself and I totally love my little fat fabric owls! 

Oh and before I forget the inspiration for this came when my cousin Norah asked me what size the shelf was for her little girls room. I totally pictured it at that moment in a child’s room because of the height and knew originally I was going to paint everything on but then I ran across my fabric and…you get the idea.

So thanks Norah for getting that ball rolling!

Thanks again for stopping by! I appreciate your time and YOU!!!
