Repurposed old window


A few years ago I picked up a few old shutters and windows to play around with.  This past weekend I decided to work on the window and make something for Evelyn's old room since I quilt in there sometimes and guests stay there.  I cleaned the room really well this weekend too so thought it would be cool to decorate a bit.  
I washed the window outside to get all the excess paint off and then I remembered that I had a nice panel with bible verses.  I measured and they were perfect for each pane of glass.
I got out the Mod Podge and cut them and glued them on.
Then I remembered I had cute little plant hangers that were made from old faucets.  Kenny liked them so he drilled the holes and put them on.  I was doing it myself but he wanted to help! 😀 

Kenny hates repurposed things but he liked this when it was done.  Not exactly a convert, but it's a start!

Dressing up a garage stepping stool

Deb's grandmother had this chair in the garage and Deb has always used it so instead of buying a new one (which wouldn't be as strong or long lasting) I made her a little cover for it.  
I put some duct tape on the chair so it would be flatter and then I made this for it.
Much cuter! She will smile each time she uses it.
