Jars and Jar Lids

Spaghetti, pickles, Starbucks, olives, bullion, no type of jar is safe from the MOD PODGE!
These are just this years crop of upcycled jars, I didn't buy any new, but recycled them all from my own kitchen.
I have so many I don't have enough stuff to fill them up right now. HA.
These are the matchy ones from my sewing room organization project.

Daughter #3

Some of our lovely sea shells from the beach. A lot of these came from this year, but some were from last year.

Chair to Match

This is my sewing chair. I covered this in the fabric from 1979. I didn't like the plain black, but do like the armlessness of this chair. So....Mod Podge to the rescue.
Full front view.

Mod Podge Central this Week!

Just a cereal box from Sams that I covered in the fabric from 1979. I use this one to store small skiens of crochet thread.

Bulletin Board & Tin Can Storage

This is a lovely bulletin board I picked up at the local thrift store for $2.50. It was a plain thing, so I covered it with this very old piece of fabric and painted the edge trim a glossy black. Before I did that however, I scanned it into the computer to print some paper to do these tins for matching table top storage. I covered a couple of jar lids but didn't get those photographed.
Here are a few binder clips from the paper, and a couple of clothespins also. When I say old fabric, I mean really old. When my dad was working in the Air Force overseas he brought this along with a similar one for my sister back from the middle east in 1979. Ha.Ha.
How's that for some stashbustin. I used a bit of the fabric on the two cans to the left and a paper on the two cans on the right. I think I like the paper best. I still have a few little scraps of the fabric, so we will see what else I can create from this.
