The updated look. : )

Again...Happy Spring!

Awesome job! I love to "fix" or "re-imagine" things I find at the store. Your bathroom now looks fresh as spring.

Hugs,

Oh this is fantastic. I love what you did with this piece, Mary Lou! I'm always impressed when someone can see past the flaws and visualize what it could be. You really have that knack!

Nice new "updated" look! It's so fresh and pretty. It "pays" to save things! LOL "Hoarders" unite!
Warmly,

Great redo - I think the touch of color on the bird is an improvement also. Pretty Spring bouquet - you did good.
Enjoy your day! I plan on working outside today.

Wow!!!!how darn cute and so creative of you...I love it! Also oh my goodness I adore your little owl! I am looking for a owl pattern right now, my niece is doing her nursery in the owl theme. Did you make your owl?
I love your bathroom, we have been working on our master bathroom just had a new cabinet made,counter,sinks and faucets. We also had to move the electrical. I post about it soon. I am just waiting for the hardware to arrive that I had to order. I really enjoyed your post today. Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth

Scrap for Joy said...

The phrase "making a silk purse from a pig's ear" was coined for you ML! You improved that little piece of art 150%...love the print on the birdie!
How are you feeling? I am so sorry to read about your balance problem. I had vertigo once and it was horrible and you've suffered for months!! I've never been on a cruise and never will.
Please take good care of yourself!

Cute, cute! What a bargain! I would have nabbed it too. I have chipboard birds just like that. I decorate with birds in my master bath. Your new arrangement is very cheery. Love the greens!

I love to fix up a clearance find, I think yours is better than the original, and what a happy bathroom! I'm loving your blog!

-Lisa said...

I love it! I also really love that you added the branch! You are clever. And the stiped yellow chubby 2 drawer chest is perfection.
Glad to have found your blog.
I'm now following.

How creative! I love that you had the vision to take the broken piece and fix it up! I'm sure it looks much better now than it did before it even broke!

WOW! How fortunate that it was damaged, because I think your 'fix' was for sure cuter that the original ever could have been. And great tute too! I'm now following you on LF...hope you'll come visit me too. Little Bit
