Altering Again

I finally got around to altered these Ikea drawer units that I've been wanting to alter since I bought them, which was about a year ago. Yep, that's me.....the procrastinator! Not sure what these are called....I think they're meant for CD storage, but I have all sorts of office supplies in them. I have 2 of them, one on each side of my computer monitor. Now I wanna go to Ikea & buy some more just so I can alter them.....this is addicting :)
I used the Making Memories 5th Avenue line of papers on them & they look so cool in my room now :) I need to re-write the labels for them (I HATE my handwriting!) as I was in a hurry to just get them done.
We finally got another glimpse of Spring. When Jim came home from work today, he asked me if I saw the flowers out around the tree. I was like "Flowers? Where?? What tree???" I have Crocus! Crocuses? However you spell it....I have them. Aren't they pretty? And look......they're purple.....my favorite color :) Now I'm wondering what else will pop up around this tree. Since we didn't move into this house until the middle of August, I have no clue what is planted around the yard. And I want to plant some things myself, but I don't even know where to dig to plant stuff as I may end up digging up other flowers in the process. Jim doesn't want me planting anything right now since we may end up moving, so I guess he's right.....I'll wait.....for now. Patience, Benita....patience! Not one of my strong suits at all!

Gonna go watch some tv & relax. Just a friendly reminder.....tomorrow's tax day if you haven't done your taxes yet. Ours were done in February & the refund's been long gone! Have a great week!

Great job on the drawers!

I love purple too. Those are such petite flowers. They'd fry down here, probably.

my crocuses didn't come up this year. I must have accidentally weeded them last year!

Lynn said...

My crocuses have already come and gone! That really stinks. The tulips are coming up now so that is something. I'm not a big gardener I just planted them for Danny.

Have a great day!

Beautiful crocuses! :) The altered boxes look wonderful. I have that same bad habit - procrastinating on a project. Someday they'll all get done. ;)

I really like the Target cubes but having trouble finding them onlone anywhere. Do you have a link to them or are they just found in the store?

I like the Ikea shelf also :)
