Shabby to Chic!

Well, it is one of my favorite times of year—garage sale season! I have found some fun buys this year and am excited to spruce them up. Here are some cute canisters I found. They were originally going for $6 for the set, but the lady informed me she was going half price on all her home d├ęcor items. For 3 bucks these babies were sold:

Now I admit, they aren’t much to look at right now, but I brought them home, got out my cricut, and went to work.

Using black vinyl, I added an outline to each canister first:

Then, I cut out the words coffee, tea, and sugar and stuck them on (I admit-I did want to put “coffee” on the large canister because I love it so much, but I didn’t):

Such an easy and fast way to transform these canisters from shabby to chic!

I am having so much fun with all the cupboard doors and drawer faces my dad gave me! Over Easter weekend, my dad helped me make these shelves:http://www.beneathmyheart.net/2009/08/cafe-shelf-tutorial-and-giveaway/. I knew I could use one of the drawers to make a cute little sign for one of my shelves. This is what I started with:

I used my cricut to cut out the word “bloom” on brown vinyl.

Using transfer tape I applied it to the drawer.

I added some blue, pearly beads I got on clearance at Michaels to the “b”

Then I made some flowers out of jute and felt for the corner. I made some leaves out of some scrap fabric and added a pearl to the center of the flowers.

Here is the finished product:

Here it is in its new home:

I am really loving the new shelves in my spare bedroom!

Onesies Galore!

So it has been a while since I have posted anything, but between my computer getting fixed and other things going on, I just haven’t got it done. I have been working on things though! Here are a few onesies that I have been making. These are all for sale, so if you need a baby gift or just want one for your on cutie, e-mail me at remnantsdiy@gmail.com.

I made this cupcake onesie with a matching hair clip for my niece who is turning 1 next week. I know she will look so cute in it! I do have more of these.

The bottom one is red, white and blue. Thought this would be so cute for memorial day and the 4th of July. I also have red, white and blue headbands for the little girls.

I have other fun tie patterns too!

Hope you all have a great weekend!
