Diy spray paint or dye furniture 💜💙🔨

I need to see if rit makes a color to dye a section of my sofa that has faded due to the sun. I love keeping my curtains open but with that comes a price to pay my sofa lost the red color and is white. So looking on Pinterest I found some cheap ways to extend the life of my sofa.
Here is a pick of the side facing my patio doors.

20140719-165942-61182818.jpg
So here are a few pics that I got from Pinterest and the rit website of others that have used the dye since my sofa isn’t a slip cover I have to dab it and since we won’t be sitting on that side I painted it shouldn’t have to be rinsed off but we will see how it goes. I stopped at joann fabrics and picked up two colors I thought would match going to wait to get my husbands thoughts on which will match the best.

You can’t tell by the pics which one will match the best but cherry red is a little darker color so need more peoples input but if no one will be able to see it really I guess it won’t matter much since it is still by the window.

Have you noticed

I am not sure if it is just me that has noticed this pattern or if anyone else has also seen a pattern at goodwill and local thrift stores. I swear there is a team on employees that must monitor blogs and Pinterest to see what the hottest trends and styles are because I have noticed several items going up in price. Has anyone else seen prices going up on certain items?

SALE

Here are some pictures of items that I lowered prices on in my etsy shop
I am trying to clear them out and make room for new items in my shop. I will be headed to Florida on mon and in my travels there have set up some time to go thrifting. Can’t wait to see what I find in Florida and the best part anything I buy from this store goes to the dogs at the shelter. So it’s like shopping and donating at the same time.

My etsy shop is http://www.etsy.com/shop/ahindle78 take a look there is many other items in my shop as well and my shop will be open while I am on vacation I just won’t be shipping items out until the week of the 18th thanks so much.

Need A Gift?🎁🎁

I have wanted to add a little variety to my etsy shop for a long time now but have been so busy with a million other things. It’s amazing how your days at work seem so long and once I get home it seems like time flies by and it’s time for bed.

Well slowly I have got a few new items and hope to have more in the upcoming weeks that I will share with you as well.

Make sure u like my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Charm-City-Creative-Designs/214517511903785?ref=hl

Also check out my etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ahindle78 to see all the items in my shop.

I made a personalized utensil set for a coworkers baby shower gift basket and just loved how they turned out.

20130517-174225.jpg

20130517-174230.jpg
The utensil set comes with two sets of utensils but in this selection it only shows one because it came with the second set at pink and this gift was for a boy lol. The manufacturer mixes up the colors so I am not able to have specific requests for color choices except for the vinyl choices. I asked everyone who purchases to specify girl, boy or gender neutral and I can add the last name for personalization if they do not know name or what they are having. I can customize with stars, polka dots, hearts and more at customer request.

20130517-174612.jpg
I also added a sippy cup and snack containers to my shop as well the picture of that is above and it purchased as a set and again colors vary but please specify girl, boy or gender neutral if u do not know what u or your family member or friend is having. I will pick colors depending on what is in stock or on hand.
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Charm-City-Creative-Designs/214517511903785?ref=hl make sure to stop past and like my Facebook page and feel free to post on your page I would appreciate it.

Here are some of the pictures of the personalized water bottles I have made teachers for their students, Girl Scout troops, sports teams and one order was for bottles that was being used inside of the goody bags given at the party.
I have red, blue, green and silver water bottles and they can be personalized with the color vinyl u pick or I can pick if u like its up to u. For large orders of silver I ask for notice in advance as this item is on back order alot or hard to find in my area. I currently have some stock of silver on hand.

The picture above is a wooden box that was very old and had to be brought into modern decor lol. It is painted purple with a clear coat and I used a pattern paper on the lid to add some fun to the box. The paper does have a clear coat on top as well. This item can be used in a child’s room to hold jewelry, small toys, in a office or adult bedroom to hold small items or in a foyer to collect small items and keys.
