Just call me Martha

The home improvements I make are very few and far between, but here is what I have been working on lately to spruce up the place:
#1: Kitchen Table Chairs: We had exhausted these chairs until the fabric on them was not-so-pretty, and unlike a normal person who would just buy some oxy-clean and go to town on them, I decided to just get new fabric and re-cover them. BEFORE: (I'm a little embarrassed to show you how gross they were)

AFTER:
(and yes, i realize the fabrics are almost identical, but they look waaaaay better now)
#2: Help from the Cricut: Harrison's mom made the cutest part of this, the "love" sign (which i LOVE...haha i think i'm funny...) and with the help of my Cricut I did the vinyl lettering underneath it. It has been a nice addition to our bedroom.
#3: Thank you HGTV for this one: Again, i did not do the cutest part of this project, my little sister did for Jack for Christmas. But i had left over fabric from Jack's bedding I made before he was born...

So I made this to put in his room...

Nice! Seriously a few little things here and there make a HUGE difference in my opinion. When you come over tomorrow you'll see a few changes that we've recently done :) all this nesting is getting to me!

This looks great! Nice! And sorry about that contest. I know you wanted it, but from that picture that hangs on our wall I doubt you needed it :) (oo-that sounds bad. I mean, I wanted it for you too and voted, but you're really an awesome photographer already! :)
