Trash to treasure

Hi thanks for visiting! I had to do this in a few posts because my computer couldn't seem to load everything, so be sure to scroll down! Thanks.

This is an old dresser my hubby and I painted white and there are the cutest little thinga ma bobs that we added to the front but you can't see them. Whaaaaa! I painted the tray on top dark navy and added stenciling that spelled America.

These frames were awful, so I painted them dark black/navy and then stenciled stars at the corners. I love to repaint frames and reuse them! They hold stitcheries I did many birthdays ago!!

Here is yet another metal basket that I barely spray painted. I usually add plants to it that are seasonal, mums for fall, poinsettias for winter just to change it around. Thanks so much for visiting!
