DIY Day!

I am joining Kimba's DIY Day party!! I cannot wait to go through all of the DIY projects tonight when I get home from work!! It is so fun to see what other people do, I get SO many ideas from going through all the projects. 



I got this cabinet for $30 and it has been sitting in our garage forever! I finally painted it last weekend. I used Caromal Coulors after Kimba about it a few weeks ago. It was SO easy to use, I have used this paint on so many projects around our house. To make it more distressed I let Brock use the hammer and bang on the top and scratch it up a little bit, he is not usually a fan of my craft projects but he LOVED banging the hammer and scratching the top of this cabinet!  I love the character that he added :)



I still need to get new knobs for it and I LOVE the way it turned out, it was a fun project to work on and I painted so many other things with this same paint.  I will show those projects in the upcoming weeks.
I just want to give a shout out to one of my best friends from high school, Janna!!  We found each other on facebook and she just started her own blog, she loves to decorate and turn trash into treasure!  I wish we lived closer to each other we would have SO MUCH fun doing crafts and decorating together :)
