Glass window update

This is the easiest update to glass windows!

We bought these cabinets on Craigslist years ago and upon installing them, we cracked a corner of one! It has always drove me a bit batty, plus our laundry room is in the main floor and easily visible. I like for our laundry room to appear tidy, and seeing into our cabinets wasn't working for me. 

I was going to go the route of the window film at Home Depot, but it seemed to be a bit more complicated than necessary. So I checked Amazon and bought this one:

Installation is super easy, just cut to size and adhere to the glass, just like contact paper. So easy and it looks great! My advice would be to buy an extra roll than what you think is needed. 

It looks much better, right?

Back at it

Well, I am back after a wonderful break. My youngest is in kindergarten now and I have a bit more time for fun and creative outlets. Next year she will be in school FULL TIME and I decided now is my time.

Make it happen. 

Have fun while doing it.

Do what you love, what you enjoy. 

Yep, I can do that! 

I figured, why wait? I've had experience and feel confident enough now that I can make this into something. I mean, I have been thrifting long before Macklemore told me it was cool. I already wore my grandma's clothes, costume jewelry, loved her style. I adore an estate sale, and not to resell things, but for the stories they tell. I love seeing the potential in old furniture, or decorating with unusual found objects.

I also love creating. Pinterest has been the best and worst thing to happen to me since I joined 6 long years ago. I know many of you agree with me. I've had more "I can do that!" moments than I can count, and I can also blame that same site with the 5 pounds that won't leave, despite all of my fitness inspiration pins:).

So follow me on this journey! You can expect many crafty tutorials, pictures of my vintage and antique finds, along with pictures of pieces I am refinishing and selling.
