Last year I made a fall wreath using supplies I had at home. While I liked the look of it, several months of working with silks and making wreaths at work inspired me to improve it.
I like the improved look much better!
I recently acquired (for FREE!) a mirror from our delivery driver at work. I love the shape, but the bright yellow and scratches were not pretty. I had a can of red paint left over from painting my desk, so my free mirror got a free makeover.
