Mini Project Weekend

With Tom's help, I was able to finish a few mini projects that have been on my to-do list for a while. First, a simple shelf hung in the kitchen. A couple of weekends ago, I met up with some friends for a day of wine tasting and thrift shopping. I found this cute little owl potpourri holder for $4, and easily turned it into a cork holder. Also on the shelf is a treasured cookbook from 1938 that I found at Cran Fest, and Red Owl spice tins.

The second mini project was a basket turned bathroom towel holder.
Such a simple and easy, three-step project:
  1. Buy basket
  2. Screw into wall
  3. Fill basket with towels

The third project involved vinyl records and tile trim
I've been wanting to fill the space above our couch since we moved in, but just hadn't found the right inspiration. When I came across this idea on Pinterest, I knew I could get Tom on board. So Saturday afternoon, Tom and I spent a couple of hours perusing Cheapo Records for additional vinyl to add to our collection and also hang on the wall. The tile trim works beautifully, and I especially love that the records can be swapped out at any time (I'm going to have to keep an eye out for some fun Christmas albums!).

The record on the top, third from the right is Chicago...for some reason it didn't photograph well

All in all, I'd say it was a very productive Sunday! Thanks to Pinterest and my wonderful boyfriend Tom for the help! :)
