My After projects...

Over at the Inspired room there was a little before and after challenge for all the procrastinators out there.

My first project...this cute hat. My second knit hat, here is my first knit hat. I have been wanting to learn to knit for a while, and I am finally doing it. Love my little cute nephew more than the hat though.... and I made myself a promise, must finish completely a knit project before starting a new one!

My second project are these cardboard magazine boxes I got from target $1 spot like 7 months ago because I could recover them cute. Finally after like $8 in decorator papers (I sort of messed up and didn't cut out for opposite sides of the box...they are done. All I did to cover them was decopauge...may favorite! Not a cheap project, but love the finished result...
Here is the finished result.... They look so cute in my craft room that I am almost ready to unveil to you all... (that is one project that requires more husband help, so I will blame it on him!)

Hope you like my projects, small, but sometimes it is the small ones you never get to!

So, do you just decoupage, or what? The boxes look great. The little things help finish the room, don't they?

Anytime that one gets the project for the little one before he's eighteen is great...cute hat! Cute nephew. I really like your organizers, too, and now I want to have some for my craft and sewing room.

Your nephew in that hat looks like a magazine shot. Very cute!

Organizers that are pretty??? Love them! Maybe I could get organized with something like that! lol

That hat is cute, but your nephew is cuter. LOL! I love the magazine boxes too. I have some plain black ones that could use some paper on them, but I never think to do it! Maybe now I will.

The hat is SO cute!

I love the paper you found for your magazine holders. I haven't seen those at the dollar spot. I think I need to go to target.

Carla said...

Adorable!! Both the boy and the hat! :o)

What a neat idea--I have many of those boxes but they are ugly and I always want to toss them! Your nephew is adorable in the hat. Doesn't it feel great to finish a project?

Your had it so cute. I'm an intermediate knitter and I always try to do something new with each project. It makes it a challenge to start off, but I'm always so pleased with myself afterwards. Your magazine holders are very cute. That's one of those projects that are simple, but make a big difference.

The hat turned out so cute. And your nephew is pretty adorable as well. Especially with the hat on. And the magazine bins turned out super. I love the paper you put on them. How come I didn't see those boxes in the Target dollar spot? I miss all the good stuff.

Mrs. Petrie said...

The hat is awesome! My husband is the knitter in our family. He's been knitting tons of baby hats for all the people we know having babies soon. I never saw the magazine holders at Target! I love them. You made them look like a million bucks. :)

Sharon said...

Small but DONE! I'm impressed and the boxes are ADORABLE!

Amy said...

Your nephew is the most adorable baby I have ever seen!!! I love the papers on the boxes too, cute little birdies.

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...
