Wk 8 Photo Challenge - Cabin Fever

This week's photo challenge by "Life With My 3 Boybarians" was Cabin Fever.  I couldn't resist using this shot for my submission this week.  As I walked out the front door our two dogs stood waiting to go outside.  The looks on their faces were, "can we come out, we're tired of being inside."

Before & After

Pinterest is the new rage and I am always looking for new DIY ideas.  One of my pet peeve's has been with our decorative pillows in the bedroom.  Every night I have to throw them on the floor and I wanted a seat bench for the end of the bed to place them on, but I didn't want to spend alot of money.  So I thought I'd check Pinterest.  Low & behold I found an idea of taking an old coffee table and turning into a seat bench.  Thank you to the hubby for helping me with the project, love when we do projects together!

Here's the breakdown of the cost and what I did:
Table - $10 second hand store (thanks Claudette for finding & picking it up for me)
Foam - $12
Upholstery Pins - $1.99
Fabric - $7 (on clearance; originally $29.99/yd. Love these kind of finds)
Paint - $4
Total Cost to make: appx $35.00

How we did it:
1. Painted the legs with a can of glossy brown spray paint
2. Glued the foam to the top of the table
3. Measured fabric and stapled to bottom of table
4. Attached the fabric pins

Wk 6 Photo Challenge - Drink Up

I am really loving this weekly photo challenge by Life With My 3 Boybarians!  Our challenge this week was drink up.  I knew that I wanted to create something with one of my favorite wine glasses by Lolita. I do enjoy a glass or two of wine and love long step glasses with some bling!

This was shot with natural light with my Canon 50mm f1.8 lens.  ISO at 100, f1.8, 1/1250.  My background is actually a lambs wool scarf.  Love it!

Wk 5 - Shadow Photo Challenge

I'm a little behind in posting my last week's challenge with Life With My 3 Boybarians.  The challenge was "shadows".  So I decided to take my actual photo and turn it into a pencil drawing, just me and my shadow!

Michigan Lake Front Photo Shoot

Another unheard of 50 degree day in Michigan, which in turn means a great day for a photo shoot.  The hubby and I spent the day driving along the St Clair River and by Lake Huron to admire the beautiful blue waters of Michigan.  We ended up having a lovely day.
