Although I don't live in Philly, I'm still intrigued by the concept. Create your own project and produce one piece of artwork each day for the entire month of January.

Do I want to take this on?

Mod Podge = Awesome

A few weeks ago idiy.com had a post about vintage french labels. It could not have come at a more perfect time as I was in the middle of planning my French market themed b-day bash. Their link suggested to use a glue stick but I wanted something with more permanence. My partner-in-crime Molly suggested Mod Podge which I had never really used.

I could not be more happy with the results! We used the matte version of the product over the various glass bottles we had collected. I really like the effect it gave as it made the glass more frosted and vintage looking. In the end we probably did about 12 vases, which really became the pièce de résistance.

Recovering Chairs

Simple enough. We have been using my SILs old set since we moved because our gigantic table and chairs will not fit in our current dining room. The chairs however were just plain beat up. She had gave me some fabric that she had bought herself to cover them with.

It was a nice heavy duty fabric, but I was really attracted to the other side...and thats what I ended up using. Cost to do this...nothing, aside from some staples for the gun and the labor of my husband to help.
