befores and afters

Just thought I would pop in and show you some befores and afters that I have been working on.

Here is the little egg thing that so many of you liked.

Here are the two frames I got for 20 cents each, look at them now!
I picked the souvenir cutlery  up from two different op shops months ago, 
they were looking rather sad, amazing what a bit of hot water and bi-carb can do!
The background is cut from the other frame I found last weekend.
The second frame I painted black and have printed a zeppelin onto a page from an old encyclopedia.

This is the little nesting box, I want to add a little bird to the landing place.

Remember this from a while back, lots of people commented on liking this little step ladder.
What do you think now?
I am undecided on whether or not to distress it.
What do you think?

I will be back later in the week with my exciting news that I keep hinting at!

  1. Deanne, wow, you have been busy.
    About the distressing, go for it if it fits with your decor and you like it.... I personally have never seen the point in it.

  2. really lovely deanne! it's amazing what paint can do.

  3. Love the Zeppelin print, that is such a brilliant idea! You are very creative!! x

  4. Love all your makeovers. Love the ladder the most. And isn't bi carb of soda fantastic? I use it to solve so many cleaning dilemas.

  5. I think it wouldn't take long for this little red ladder to look distressed with normal use, so I would leave it. I was intrigued by the name of your I have five kids..four boys and one girl. Nice to meet you.

  6. Great work, my favourite make-over is the step ladder - very clever.
    Looking forward to hearing your news.....

  7. Wow - talk about fast work. They've come up really well. I don't bother distressing anything in my place. The children do that all by themselves....! x

  8. The stepladder looks great. it's all very creative! x

  9. So many cute projects! I love the red on that ladder. It really spiced it up. I would be torn about distressing too, but I think it might do nicely to have a little. But it's super cute as is too!

  10. You rock, great job transforming everything. Love the frame with the silverware in it the best.

  11. Deanne - they are fabulous! I'd suggest distressing, but it does look wonderful as it is, too.

    Hope to see you soon!

  12. Cute stool, and yes, distress.

  13. I love the pictures esp. the fishing lure.
    ps: thanks for stopping by my blog.

  14. that little step ladder is my favorite- so fun!

  15. love them so very cute and country

  16. I love it Deanne.
    The ladder looks amazing now.
    What is the aqua blue you used on the other bits???
