Pink Saturday! Yippeeee!

Just for fun I wanted to post my Pink Saturdaypost from one year ago almost to the day! Here is a pink screen that I made to cover the stereo in my craft/sewing/guest room.

Be sure to visit Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com . She is the beauty behind the brains, and several other gals are joining the Pink party.

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting!
This is artist canvas covered with pink rose fabric and embellished with ribbon, and flowers. I hinged it together on the back side with tough cardboard glued to both sides.

I needed something to cover up my modern cd player and radio. So I decided to make a small room like screen. Instead of a large version I made a small version. I also made one to go in my kitchen to cover the are where my toaster, coffee pot, etc. is. But it is red and I will post it next week, it turned out really cute, red checks, etc. These are pictures from my sewing/craft area. It used to be a dark color on the walls and it just got to me, too dark and depressing. I needed white. So I started spray painting and painting everything white or pink.
My HUBBY actually told me (with a straight face) Home Depot called him and wanted to know why he was buying so much spray paint! I almost believed him, he said they were keeping track of all the spray paint purchases and that he had exceeded the stores limit! Liar Liar pants on fire. Anyhoo...

This last picture is of a wooden piece my hubby (bless his heart)actually got for me for free on the side of the road. (Couldn't believe that one!)He encouraged me to SPRAY PAINT it.
The sweet little rose picture is from his great grandmother. I will post more pictures of the room this week. Too many to post today!
Thanks and have a blessed day!

Love your crafting/sewing area....your hubby is too funny about the spray paint. I am on that same spree but everything here seems to be getting black or white. I can't believe that treasure was salvaged from the side of the road....it is just delightful!!
Have a happy Pink Saturday!

Beverly said...

Great idea, Debbie. It works perfectly. I love the piece your husband found for you.

And, all of that pink thread is so fun.

Happy Pink Saturday.

Oh, and by the way, my husband loves corn pudding.

Deborah aka Miss Bee said...

How clever of you to make that pretty shabby cover to hide you high-tech equipment. I don't like things like that to be obvious either.

Happy Pink Saturday!


Mini screen creation - superb idea!
Free item - you lucky duck!
Funny husband - priceless!

I hate to be a broken record, but it's cold and gloomy here today and it rained all day yesterday! Hoping that I can get outside a bit to check out my gardens☺ Pink Saturday is bringing a little much needed and very welcome color into my home today. Thanks so much for participating. It's always so nice to visit your blog and see what's going on.

Hope your weekend is filled with sunshine and everyone you l♥ve. I'm hoping mine will be dry☺

So loved your blog. What a great idea to make small screens to hide things and so well executed. I think your husband knows mine and they can say these things with such a straight face. Blessings to you in southern California from central Vermont. Meg
