home improvement evolution

The shelf is installed, a few pieces of milk glass are present, my favorite thrift find ever (white frame now painted blue was $4 I think), green ceramic bird from Old Time Pottery and my DIY wreath.

This wreath was not hard to make and it is impressive when complete--as in, one tiny wreath form becomes a big, full wreath. I only had one paperback novel from the $1 store and I could have used 12-24 pages to fill in gaps BUT once it is up on the wall, you cannot see those gaps. Also, I painted by book's edges blue and I love what that added.

I have also completed a pillow for the bed using a simple coin quilt method and more Nicey Jane fabrics.

I am pleased with how this turned out too.
Slowly, but surely, things are coming together.

Wow - very shabby chic!! I love it. From far away, the wreath above the milk glass almost looks like a topiary - like it's connected. You are so crafty!!
