Paint Project!

So in October, before we moved to a new place, a friend was giving away stuff during her move and I got this piece! We have a little TV for our basement and no stand for it since our last 2 place's happened to have a pre-built-in spot for it. I had been wanting to try a new project for a while now and this free item was the perfect thing to try it on before I move on to other furniture.

The first thing I did was take a degreaser to the whole thing to remove any dirt and build up.

Then I painted it with my favorite go to paint, BEHR.  I used Pale Wheat in Satin.  The coolest part was I got to use my sisters paint gun and it made painting it go by a lot faster!  I now have decided that I need my own smaller version.

 Next, using BEHR finishing glaze and mixing it with some dark walnut stain. I brushed the glaze  over each section, like so.

Take an old cotton t-shirt and immediately wipe away.  Leave dark in the cracks and giving the whole project a worn antique look.

Before and after:

 FINISHED!  Except that the glass broke 10min before I went to put it in.  So now I guess I have to replace that, most likely I will frost the glass too!  Maybe a future pictures is on its way.

Reese's Pieces Birthday

(Invitation made by Ashlee over at )
This post is a year late! I threw this party when my 2 year old turned 1. A year later I would have done a lot better taking pictures of the different things I did, but oh well, you learn something everytime! I think I'll do this party again someday when she is older, becuase after all, her name is Reese!
The Table:
The banner:
The cake (this was made with a cookie pan) Was Peanut Butter Pound cake with chocolate frosting and Chocolate fondant.

The craft: We made our own Giant Peanut Butter cups. Using coffee liners we poured chocolatein the bottom, then placed (already prepared) flattened P.B rounds in the middle and topped off with more chocolate. Then refridgerated to take home

My cutie scared of the candle.
I know 1 year olds arn't "supposed" to have peanut butter, but with a name like reese she couldn't be allergic! And I'm not a paranoid mommy.
The game. I had everyone right down as many Reese's Peanut Butter product they could think of (including holiday shapes) in 1 min. (I can't remember now but I believe I had found 43 different kinds) and the winner got that huge candy bar pictured below.
The Candy Buffet:
Reese's Puffs
Reese's Pieces
Reese's Chips
Reese's Fast Breaks
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Large, Small, and Mini
Reese's 100 calorie
Peanut Butter Sandwhich Cookies

Teapot Cake

This teapot is actually hollow like a real teapot. Made out of chocolate then covered in fondant, the lid comes off to fill with candy! The base (table) is the actual cake! It was a fun challenge to take on!
