Parents and Projects

My parents and my little sister came to visit this weekend, and we just had the best time EVER! It was way too short of a visit, but we got a lot accomplished. We knocked two projects off my to do list. The first is the bathroom cabinet that fell off the wall in our apartment in Boston and broke. It's been sitting around looking all sad and pathetic for over a year now, and finally I'd had enough. I took that busted up ol' cabinet and took the doors off cleaned it up and my Mom made a cute little curtain to cover the contents. Voila a super cute shabby chic bathroom cabinet! (Casey informed me people don't like to see a toilet seat up. Sorry)


And if that isn't cute enough I've saved the best for last. I forgot to take a before shot, but just imagine an old scruffy office chair with a small hole in the very unattractive blue canvas cover. With a little walmart fabric, a staple gun and the magic ingredient WONDER UNDER we were able to create this masterpiece. It's beautiful and makes my heart flutter whenever I see it. If only my desk were in a more public area (instead of hidden away in my bedroom)...

I'm so thankful for parents that are willing to pitch in and help me out with my projects, it sure has brightened my day!
