Milk Glass

I have this old clear glass from my grandparent's cottage that was kind of scuffed up and not really clear anymore.  So, I turned to this tutorial for DIY Milk Glass.
 
Right before I started, I remembered I had these Geese patterned containers in my trunk that I used for flour and sugar (I think they were from my parent's wedding).  I decided they needed a makeover.
I made sure to wash them all and took off the metal and rubber parts of the containers and went for the spray paint.  I also bought this little spray paint gun thing that makes it a little easier to paint (no cramping fingers on bigger painting jobs).  It was only $2.99 and works pretty well.
I sprayed the containers with the lids on so that they can still be used to store baking stuff in.  I did two or three coats each and sanding drips off between coats.  Here are the final products:

Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars are one of my favorite desserts and I found this recipe on Pinterest that only calls for two ingredients... Angel Food cake mix and a can of lemon pie filling.
 Mix the two ingredients together and bake @ 350 in a 9x13 for 20 minutes.
[sprinkle on powdered sugar]

The recipe calls for a can, but this was the only pie filling I could find on such short notice.  There was a little too much pie filling so the final product was a little more pie than cake.  It was still delicious and I will definitely need to try the actual recipe soon... or just repeat this.

Graffiti

Last week, BC [the bf] and I decided to go on walk around the neighborhood since the weather was nice.  We were passing over a little bridge and I glimpsed a little bit of graffiti down this waterway thing. I saw a bunch of pipes with this water [I hope] coming out of it.  I was just thinking about how cool it would be if someone put a face there and then I saw this!






This is some of the newest graffiti.  The colors are insane!  It kind of looks like two chickens fighting with a foot stomping on them.











This Beroki guy had a ton of stuff down there.  Not sure if these are from the same person.  The faces are my favorite!






Super excited about checking out the new stuff people put down there in the future!

Hello and Good Morning!

I just wanted to make sure there was something on my blog since I'm about to have millions of followers. ;] So, I am starting this blog to keep track of friends I don't see every day, projects I'm working on, and adventures I'm having.

Stuff to look forward to:
  • makeovers of furniture/home stuff and crafts
  • some kind of adventures
  • complaining about grown up life
  • cool things I find on the internet
  • ... and that's about it

I'm off to spend the rest of my workday reading Buildings that Changed the World [It is so good that I nearly forgot about my lunch break yesterday.] and pinning!

ps.  I need suggestions for a cool blog name.
