Welcome to our old farmhouse. Over the past year I have learned so much history of this house and the people who lived here. Ninety six years of love, loss, hopes and dreams. Preservation continues and there is always a repair to be done. We are trying to be purest in our preservation as much as we possibly can. I hope you follow along and each week I will try to give you a little history of the house as well as the first owners of the house. I've been lucky enough to find a journal from a Granddaughter who talks about the house as well as her Grandparents. So come follow along and learn about this old house as well as the occupants, old and new.

Tray Transformation

Welcome to another Metamorphosis Monday, hosted by
Be sure to stop by Susan's and visit with
all the talented participants you are surely to
find there.
While walking around Hobby Lobby the other day, I saw a display with a beautiful mirrored tray used. The price of the tray alone was $34.99. The wheels started to turn, I think I have everything at home to make something similar. A friend of mine cleaned out her storage shed not to long ago and gave me an old vanity mirror. Part of the little ledge that went around the parameter of the mirror was broken, but she thought I might be able to do something with it. Here it is after I took it apart, it's very hard to take a picture of glass. Sorry for the bad picture! So I found some old knobs... Painted them black, the tray in Hobby Lobby had handles on the side. With feet it will be easy to pick up. I also had a few rub on transfers from another project, I added for a little glam!! And here is the final product. My little rags to riches mirror! My cost zero dollars, and a great way to spend less than an hour!!
