CRAFT IDEA

I laid my own linoleum several years ago. Yep! Cocked it around the stool and tub so water wouldn't get through the cracks in case of water spill or leak. lol I wanted it done good; so I did it myself. lol

Here is a photo of my bathroom scales. If you will notice it has a top just like my linoleum. All I did was take a piece of paper (1 side of grocery sack), lay it on top of scales and press hard to get a pattern. The creases will show when you do that. I cut out the pattern, laid it on the top of a piece of self stick linoleum, drew pattern with pencil, cut it out, and then stuck it to my bathroom scales. I also measured the bottom of my wicker stand and cut out a piece of linoleum and stuck it to the side of my little shelf.


Another project I did was put ceramic tiles on top of my end tables. I put 2 full size in the front, Lowe's cut the other 2 shorter, and I put the shorter ones in the back. Put the edge of tile along sides, front, and back, and put grout between the spaces. Gary said I could not do it!! Ha! It worked and I love how the top of my end tables look and so easy to clean off with a wet washcloth!

Wishing all of you a lovely day with lots of blessings. All are in my prayers.

Love, hugs, and prayers,
Janie

Lets see now how high up does the needle go when you step on those pretty scales? Oh no I didn't mean to say that. One time Mel told me something couldn't be done. I caught him gone and I did it. When I was younger I liked to do "things" but no more. Once I painted a picture of a peacock with a toothpick because the feathers were so small. I always love to see pictures of your projects.

WOW, your creativity never ceases to amaze me... pretty soon you'll be applying glitter on toilet paper, now that would make our fannies a lil' itchy wouldn't it? ROFL. Keep up the good work!!!
