About Me

Cusseta, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids.! My husband Tim is a Soldier on Fort Benning. I work for MWR for the Community Recreation Division as an 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, she is in her 9th season (2017-2018) of being a competitive dancer. It's exhausting but we LOVE it. Cale is starting to REALLY get into sports. He is on a year round wrestling team, and he plays baseball in the spring! 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! On Valentines Day of 2017 we bought our first Travel Trailer. I'll be documenting our travels also on this blog!

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!
