Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

Happy Sunday. Here we are in the last day of February. Another month is coming to a close. With the warm weather we have been having, my azaleas are blooming and they are so pretty. It is early for them. They don't usually bloom until march. I guess they are just confused. 

I know that many of you are still dealing with cold temps and snow, but it will coming coming soon. We had a very warm weekend, actually too hot for this time of year. 

We spent yesterday cleaning the motorhome. I took all of the sheets, towels and blankets out and washed them all. We are hoping to do some traveling soon and wanted to be ready. Who knows when that will be. I don't want to be around too many people. 

Well, that was my weekend, how was yours?

Thursday Favorite Things Party

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things Party

Thursday Favorite Things. Share NOW. #linkyparty. #TFT #thursdaayfavoritethings #eclecticredbarn

Happy Thursday! I am so excited that you dropped by. We have had a very lovely week with warm weather. We had some rain on Sunday but that has been it. 

My dogs love being outdoors, especially Louie. He just wants to sit on the driveway and watch cars and people go by. Mostly he likes to bark and anyone that walks, rides their bike or jogs. He doesn't want anyone to get too close to the house. He is such a protector. 

So although our back yard is where the pool is and our covered patio, they like it out the side by the garage. Needless to say, I spend most of my time there with them. I take my projects and work on them there. I finished planting some of the flowers I bought over the weekend and started to sand a chair. Tomorrow is to be nice again, so I will finish working on the chair and wash my car.

I Hope you enjoy all of the inspiration you find at the party. We have the best bloggers and they are all so creative. Hope you like the features!

Many of my features come from you my commenters. Don't forget to leave your Linkup Number or Post Title so I can find you and you could become one of my featured commenters next week.

Upcycled Shoe Shine Box

Upcycled Shoe Shine Box

I have had this shoe shine box for over a year that I got at a garage sale (before covid) and just the other day, decided to update it for something usable. It's not like I shine my shoes these days. lol!

I needed something to store my seed packets in and this would be perfect.

It didn't start out this way. It wasn't in bad shape but the inside was rather gross.

First I removed the part where you placed your foot. I had to patch the holes. Then I sanded the piece. 

The tricky part was getting the sticky stuff out from the inside. Once that was done I removed the hinges and the clasp from the front.

Next I painted the entire piece, inside and out with some white paint I had on hand. I had to give it two coats.

While the paint was drying, I tried to clean the hinges and clasp, but they still did not look good so I spray painted them with a brown hammered paint. 

I found a seed image online and printed it out to place on the top. I used modge podge to secure it to the top.

Now it was time to put it back together. I put the hinges back on.

And then the clasp in the front.

My seed packets went in next but these are not all of them because I was planting with some of them. The box is big for the seeds I have, but I am excited to have them in one place.

It organized my seeds and finished a project that was long over do.
