About Me

Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

Repurpose, Repurpose, Repurpose!

Remember this guy?

Isn't it so much better now?  I didn't need to prime the inside of this because I paid a little bit more for it to already be included in the spray paint I bought.  The black was the cheapy kind so I DID have to prime it before I sprayed it.  When I sprayed the black I had it laying on it's open end so I didn't get any of the black inside.  I hand painted the open edge their so I didn't have to tape anything off. 
 
If you notice I have this contact paper EVERYWHERE in my house.  This was the last of it.  I did a light spray of clear modge podge (did you know they make spray paint style modge podge?  I didn't until a few months ago, it's AWESOME!) on the top so it would seal it and it wouldn't scratch as easily.  I also sprayed the basket black and it was still drying as I was taking this picture.
 
Doesn't this look SO MUCH BETTER?
I really need to touch up that dresser next to this - it was damaged in our move!
