When we had our flower shop, they consisted mostly of floral design, some interior design, and organizing.
Now, in retirement, she's added carpentry, basic cabinet making, painting, sewing, upholstery, beadwork, framing, the beginnings of photography, and of course more interior design. Why? All because she can't afford to buy the things she wants for her home. So she makes them, each and every one.
This morning she's rebuilding a kitchen cabinet that she had made earlier, so it will hold the blender and toaster, to get them off the counter.
Ps. The knobs on the little wicker shelves she's holding in the photo are made with multiple buttons.

Julie Ali I love that little green table on the side with the cups on them. I have bought some oops paint from the Home Depot but hubby has hidden them. I think he wants me to leave our garage sale furniture alone. I will paint one chair yellow like a small buttercup in a field. The other one will be fashionably gray. One must not go against Pinterest fads.

Stan Burfield Ha ha. Linda's big on repainting furniture. Everything you see here has been, except the curtains, which she purchased for their colour. Even the iron table has been painted. And the wicker drawers.

Stan Burfield I'll post a photo of the completed change, along with some more of the rest of the kitchen as soon as I get the chance.

Stan Burfield Others have suggested that. But it would be me doing the posting. Linda's such a totally visual person that she hates anything to do with computers.

Julie Ali Stan Burfield It is a lot of fun on Pinterest. I never post anything as I don't know how. But I love pinning.
