Yes, I'm in Love with Pinterest! I saw some cute little mailboxes on there and tweeked it for my kids. I used the cheap glass candelholders and spray painted them black then added their names in vinyl. I used the E6000 glue, it works best for glass and metal. They loved having their own special treat that day!
I've been seeing all over Pinterest these cute armories turned into craft stations. I searched craigslist last summer found one that foot the bill, and put it in the garage. Did nothing with it till my husband was threatening to throw it out. So I got some Sander deglosser rubbed it all over then painted a primer, then painted some left over paint from the inside of my house, added some glaze and then sealed it all. I got some new feet from Lowe's, I didn't like the ones that were already on there. I put the same hardware back on, maybe some day I'll add some glass knobs. Now I just need to organize all my crap and put it into it. Just glad it will be behind closed doors someday soon.
My boss at work is having a baby, it was the oddest thing I was sitting in the temple and invisioned this creation for her. So I had to make it! I took a cabinet door spray painted it black, made some flowers with fabric scraps and scrapbook brads, hot glued them on, then added vinyl letters for the name and stapled with staple gun ribbon on the back to make a bow to hang it from. She was truely impressed and now I have orders from the other pregnant people at work to make them one. Oh dear.
