Refurb: 2 Tier Side Table/Sold

End table/bedside table: Refurbished to a light blue with tons of distress to bring out it's vintage appeal. Mocha glaze over top. Looks super chic and elegant and would be a beautiful touch in any room! Bedroom, guest room, living room, dining room, even a hallway or nook. This is definitely a conversation piece :)


DIY Cupcake Tier

Here's my version of Anthropology's Cupcake Stand using old cake pans/tins. You can use just about any kind of old, beat up tins. Mine don't even match, which {in my opinion} is even better :)

I found 3 mismatching pans from Goodwill. Then used a clear candlestick for one base, and a white vase for the 2nd.

Bust out your E6000, glue it on! I love it for holding fruit, cupcakes, veggie trays, spices up any party! and totally vintage.

Teacher Gift Ideas!

So excited for the school year to be done!! and thanks to Pinterest, I've pinned {{way}} too many cute teacher gifts than I really need. I think I narrowed it down though, here's a few of my fav's:

{I'm one smart cookie Thanks to you!}
View it HERE

{{Thanks for sparking my Creative Juices!}}

and I thought this was a fun summery gift, maybe change a few
 items for a pedicure giftcard??

But what I've {{actually}} decided on....I think I'm going with the cookie jar idea :) although, my cookies might not be homemade! 

and the other idea, my son actually helped me create: "have a KOOL summer!" or "Thanks for being one KOOL teacher!" using a juice pitcher, or juice dispenser {i got a large fun summer one at Walmart for $12}, then inside we put a large container of KOOL-Aid, and a wooden mixing spoon. 

Good Luck with yours!!
