Morning friends and happy Friday!!! Woo hoo!! This week, I am happy
to announce that I am apart of the Flea Market Swap 3 aka #swapitlikeitshot. To
break it down, I, along with a crew of talented bloggers, select an
item or items between $10 and $15 to send to another blogger, and we
make them into something fun and functional for our home. Sounds like
I received two small brass bowls, several vintage books, a fabric remnant, and an Asian bamboo mat from Rachel over at Shades of Blue Interiors .
I am not super crafty, or craft at all for that matter, so I was initially stumped. However, the bamboo shade/mat stood stood out to me.
looking at it for a while, knew that the floral pattern in the center and overall texture
is what drew me most to this item. Imagine my excitement when I realized
that part measured exactly 8×10.
Hitting up my frame stash, I decided to cut and frame the floral portion on a matted 8×10 and it looked so cute!
My vintage books are currently living under my lamp in the family room, with a few new ones, but once the living room makeover is completed, I am sure that they will be living there. I love decorating with books.
I cleaned up my brass bowls using Bar Keepers Friend, and used it to store q-tips in my master bathroom.
Like I mentioned before, I may have other plans for my vintage books, and other brass bowl in my upcoming
living room makeover, however the fabric has me stumped for now:( If you
have any suggestions, please let me know!!
Pop on over to my swap partners, Jessica of Gourley Girl & Guy to see how she re purposed the items that I sent to her!
