Use Whatcha Got

If God gives you lemons, make lemonade...

If God gives you random leftover home decor items make art? (Eh, it kinda works...although I'm sure he didn't want me to buy the random leftover crap to begin with.) 

Anyway, here's what I was up to on Sunday:

Project 1: 

  • Woven Placemat
  • IKEA silver frame (been waiting to be put to use)
  • small IKEA mirror (1 of 4)
  • Left over Guest Room wall paint
  • Paper from IKEA frame

All of this eventually became a new mirror for our guest room.


Project 2:
  • Old Target Artwork (was originally in our apartment bathroom)
  • Left over white trim paint
  • Pottery Barn Keys
  • Gorilla Glue
All that equals some fabulous new art for our living room that I love.

Yay for simple free artwork completed in a hour! Woop, Woop.

Until next time...


  1. Dang Sis!
    I'm beyond impressed. Love them both, ESPECIALLY the key art, perfect for the Kee's! You're crazy talented! love you!

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! You are so creative and our minds think so much alike. I wish I had an hour to do these things ;) Great ideas and keep up the work! We want to come visit the new digs soon...I'm pretty sure we'll be in for Easter!

  3. I REALLY hate giving you too much credit ;) (like how awesome of a gift we got for Christmas), but I gotta say...pretty dang good lil sis.

  4. Those are just ok but I prefer full length mirrors. Nothing shows off my body like a head to toe mirror. Got to make sure everything is in perfect form for when a potential woman encounter might happen.

  5. Oh I see what you did there with the Keys. Nice pun. Also, whats the deal with the birds? They're everywhere.

  6. C'mon Floyd. You got the first pun but missed the second.

    Last name - Kee - Keys
    First name - Robin - Birds

    Haha I'm pretty sure neither were intentional but it works, right?

  7. Robin, I love both ideas! (Especially love the mirror) Wish I could think like you and put all the extra junk in my house to good use!
