FYI

Just came across a great blog written by an interior designer, set designer and artist who does fabulous stuff by repurposing and redesigning a lot of her creations. She gives instructions on how to do some really interesting projects (dyeing fabric on furniture, making lamps, concrete counters etc.) If you are interested in that sort of thing her blog is worth taking a peek!

Yay for concrete counters!!! Will give that a try this summer :) Anyone here ever built one?

I think I'd need to buy a new house for that - or at least an old one so that I could repurpose everything. But I do love them! What I'd like to try is some concrete mosaic planters. We are currently experiencing the longest, snowiest winter in the entire history of the universe, and my thoughts are turning to greenery!

My sister-in-law is wanting to renovate her kitchen, maybe I can persuade her to try it.

Oh yes--get her to try and let us learn from her mistakes :D
