Repurposed and Refinished Gun Cabinet

Hi everyone. I have been working the last several weeks on transforming a Thrift Store gun cabinet into a curio cabinet. It was a lot of work, but so worth it. I used Chalk Paint with clear soft wax, and love using it.

Here are the before, during and after photos.








And here are the "after" photos.

Wedding Mini Album

When my daughter got married, the scrapbook I made her was huge. I don't mean just huge, I mean HUGE HUGE and extremely heavy.  So, she asked me to make her something that is much more manageable.  And so, I did.

The decoration on the front of the album is her corsage I made for the dress she changed into after the ceremony for the reception. (They were married in a forest in the middle of July.) The paper is The Paper Studio's Antiquities 8-1/2 x 11 inch paper pad, lace - some new, some from my stash. The box is just a shoe box I spray painted and then glued the paper to. Turned out rather well, I think.

Hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I did making it.
