Flowering Trees

I was in Hobby Lobby and I noticed these artificial flowers and they reminded me of mini trees. They were 50% off which made it even better. So I took the leaves off and snipped the stem at the length I wanted and "planted" the trees in my flower garden. I had more than enough to make ten trees or bushes by cutting the stems shorter.

New Bathroom Storage

It has always bothered me that there was no storage in the bathroom. I was in Michaels Craft Store and found this cabinet for a dollar. It is open and perfect for towels and the size fits without making the bathroom too crowded. I just need to make a decision to paint it, leave it natural or "stain" with acrylic paint similar to how I did the floors.

Stainless Steel Appliances

I really wanted a stainless steel refrigerator and a dishwasher. I noticed that I had dead space on the sink side from separating the kitchen unit. I had an idea to turn this space into the dishwasher. I bought some stainless steel contact paper for a bakery that I am planning on making later. It occurred to me to use this in the kitchen. So I thought why not cover the refrigerator too, I painted the ice and water dispenser black, I added a small piece of cork for a memo board.
