MakeOver Monday...

Hope you all had a nice weekend. For us, it was one of those times when it really stinks to be a grown up, but as my hubby says "things will work out and we will be fine".

Anyway, onto the makeovers! Remember that wood cutting board I got last week? I painted it and aged it and made it into a platter for my fat chicken!
I love how it came out and it is so easy to just move her off the stove now when it is time to make dinner.

I also decided to redo this door hanger bunny that I have had for about 10 years. My parents made it(they did craft shows for years). It was a bit too cutesy country for me but I didn't want to get rid of it.
After three different attempts of trying to make it look more prim(I wasn't sure what I really wanted), I ended up with this. More detailed than I envisioned at first, but I like the end result. What do you think? If you like the original better, that is fine, but it's too late to go back, LOL!

Oh, and no Sunday Weigh in, why? you ask. Because I was in a foul mood and didn't want to post my mere .7 lbs loss. But there you have it, better than a gain, right? I'm a stress eater, and this past week has not been a good one. God is teaching me a huge lesson in patience. And I have to keep reminding myself to Trust in Him.

Have a marvelous Monday everyone,



  1. Morning Friend
