A DIY Filled Weekend

We had a busy weekend around here, full of DIY!  Not a whole lot related to the wedding, but here we go!

  1. On Friday night the Future Hubs upgraded my computer from Vista to Windows 7.  So far I really like new operating system and I’m trying out Windows Live Writer 2011 for the first time.10126085
  2. While FH upgraded my computer I got to work on a little craft project – a felt dahlia brooch.  It was a little finicky, but I love it as an accent on my black pea coat.IMGP2766
  3. On Saturday the FH and I tackled a home project together – installing a new faucet in our kitchen!  We have been busy turning this place from mine (since I bought it four years ago) to ours over the last few weeks.
    The before is your bog standard faucet that the builder installed:IMGP2759And after, a fancy schmancy Moen faucet!IMGP2763
  4. And finally, this is just the beginnings of a wedding DIY project, but I got these awesome wood frames from someone on kijiji.  I’m planning on repainting these and they may have another life as a chalkboard sometime in the future..??IMGP2770

How was your weekend?

Wow! You were super productive this weekend! I only had the time to change my mind about centerpieces 12 time and buy some overpriced vintage tea cups on ebay haha.

I love those frames! They definitely have great potential with a little paint.
