A birthday present and a few more finds......

I was FINALLY able to meet up with my friend (whose birthday was in December!) and give to her the birthday and Christmas presents I had been holding on too!

She really liked it! Unfortunately I didn't take any "tutorial" photos.....I still sometimes forget to do that! But, suffice it to say, it wasn't hard. I just painted the old reclaimed fence wood, attached some cool knobs, one from a booth at McKinney trade days (the old one) and the others, from Hobby Lobby. :)

I had a couple more finds I forgot to share with you. I picked these up at McKinney trade days......a local trade show here that is one weekend a month.

 Another sign for our wood wall upstairs...oh how I hope to finish that so I can share!
 An old shutter......housing my "LOVE" letters (photos soon), and......
these two old boxes which I have no idea what to do with! But I LOVED them and they were $1.50 each!!

Lastly, I wanted to share with you a pillow i made. I picked up an old sweater from the Goodwill for $2.99 last week. I have been wanting to add some off-white to my family room so i thought new pillows would be perfect! Unfortunately, I cannot find the picture of the sweater but trust me...I took it! Anyway, I washed the sweater then I cute the arms off right below where they started.
 Then I sewed the top shut..........
 and then the bottom shut.......
and there you go...a new pillow!

Hope to be back later with some valentine posts and projects! :)
