Upcycled desk divider now a perfect shelf for thread

This is an upcycled old desk drawer divider I ran across in my husbands office. I instantly said I must shabby chic this!

So I primed it, painted it, and then sanded it in wear-type spots for a shabby chic look. Then I love adding a couple coats of paste wax and buff it for a nice finish. I've done this on other tables that I upcycled.

Weekend Work in Progress - Simple Stars and Stripes

This is a design I am working on that is in progress using my stash of blues, newsprint type of creams, and reds. I wanted to do a simple star and now i'm adding strip piecing from the reds and creams. Yeah it would be ideal to have had it done by the 4th but I was still working on other quilts and projects.

This is on my design wall. I'm loving the freshness of this! More to come....
