I don't want to sway the votes (not that I have that ability), so here are the projects I voted on last week. The theme was Up-Cycle.
The dresser turned sandbox
First and foremost, I'm a new fan of Owen's Olivia, she has a great balance between her two passions- home projects and sewing. Of course I'm in love with the color choice a bold Kelly Green. Watch out Peacock it may be my new favorite. Maybe it's because Kelly Green is very close to the color of the year, a March-ish color, and also close to my birthstone color (which is the color of the year).
Plus there was some serious thought put into the sandbox. As in, they use the dresser top to cover it up when stormy weather appears and used durable exterior paint to keep it outdoors.
My next vote was:
Television Stand Upcycled to a Bar
Last but not least:
Trash Pile Tire Made Trendy Table
I'm ecstatic and quite surprised that the projects I actually voted for, made it to the next round. Of course all of the projects were very charming and if I had four votes, it would have been for this this:
Little League Lounger
Re-webbing is not new to me, since my pops made me pick up a chair when I was young to add to his collection. I guess I didn't realize they sell it in more modern styles now. Maybe that's where I get the curb rescuing from? Anyway, my nephew was in baseball and would have been the perfect fit since the only way to see well is from the bleachers. I'm in love with the fact that she sliced up an old baseball bat for the arms and re-purposed an old table runner for the pillow. Sadly the chair didn't make it to round two.
In other news, I was lucky enough to go to Oz the Great and Powerful this past weekend. I must say graphics have come a long way! And it was a very enjoyable movie. I rarely make it to the theater to see movies (mostly because I hate people interrupting) but it was worth it!
What has been inspiring you lately? Did you vote during round 1? Do tell!
Have you gone to the theater recently? Maybe you avoid them, like me, because of crowd-ruiners?
