Decoupage!!!

Decoupage !!!
I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Don't you????
I' m getting board so easily  so , every now and then....i am hooking on "something" (hobby) and i am doing it day and night...and then i like to change....hopfully i have a huge variety to choose from...painting,jewellery making ,decoupage,scrapbooking ,felt ,clay...etc....the last two months i've made so many jewelleries...i was sooooooo tired... and as i wanted to do something different i made :
1 . Two decoupaged recipe boxes!!!  
(before)


     (after)
a) i decoupaged the lid and painted it using a mocha brown and a sandy beige...cause i wanted to give it a shabby chic look!!!

and the inside....
b)i decoupaged it but this time i painted the box a dark brown then i applied  a crackle gel and then i used a beige color



2.  I also made a decoupaged box for classification of paid and unpaid bills...
 and the inside...
as you can see that decoupage paper was a big hit...everyone wanted that paper...amazing ha???
this time i used a mocha brown and a light blue!!!

3. And ... a painting with the same decoupage paper ...i really loved that painting...!!!!!!


4. Last  but not list another decoupaged box ...much smaller and with different decoupaged paper ...(yeyyyyyyyy!!!!)
since i wanted to give it a vintage look i used a vintage blue and and a greyish beige...

 and the inside....
What do you think???????
Thank you for visiting my blog ...!!!!!!!
after all that decoupage ...i think it's about time to do something different...
untill my next post ...

Μakeovers!!!!!!!!

Today i wanted to show you the makeover of  2 of my lamps and a candle holder at our summer house!!!
my mother in lawgave me that plastic lamp she had it  at my hubys nursery room !!!he hated it and he wanted to get rid of it ...but i love everything old ...even though i disliked the color...it was too bright for us...sooooooooo i thought that i could change it...                    
 i used a golden color as a base then i applied a cracle gel and after that layer i used a shabby light blue
 for the interior i blend a sandy color with gold and glitter...
 and that's the result...
as you can see i ried to imitate the shabby chic style...hope i made it!!!
 we also had a chandelier like ,lamp at our living room from my husbants grandma that golden toned chandellier was great but we didn't like its golden tone so my husbant said that since the other lamp was a success i could give it a try...after all that chandellier wasn't just beautiful but had sentimental value -our granny died this summer...sooooooo i did my best...
and that's the result...hope you like it too!!!



 and since i change the chantellier i had to chage the candle holder too...

that was all ...i really hope that you liked them!!!
thank you for visiting!!!!
untill my next post
