A few DIYs around the house

One of many sleepers - turned - dolly -sleepers. Super easy - just trace the shape of a doll sleeper, or doll if you have nothing, onto an inside-out sleeper. Adjust the neck if you have to. Cut and pin and sew with a zigzag stitch. Simple!

Have you ever heard of a table lamp? A lamp table? I'm not sure what the term is! They come in a charming mix of ugly brass and veneer 'wood'. A coat of spraypaint, though, and they're super sexy. Can you imagine if I did this in a sunny yellow or a bright turquoise? YUM. My hubby would have a heart attack, though.

LETTUCE TREE. We've had crazy rain this year. Spraypaint can for size reference. WOW.

And a quick snap of the composter my hubby made, followed by me RUNNING back inside before the camera had finished thinking about it. So. Many. Mosquitos! The way this thing is made, the boards in the front are just stuffed into slots he made, not actually nailed in place. So he can pull them all up and get at the compost! We have too very big yards so our little composter wasn't cutting it. We needed something BIG for all our grass!
Just a few things that have happened lately that I haven't blogged about. Next weekend we are going to be painting most of our living space in our house, so look forwards to the before-and-afters that will be coming up in the next few weeks!
