Cake stands and Relief Society Party

 Her are the finished cake stands. I started out with plywood tops and planned on adding trim , well that turned out to be a bigger project that I had planned . We ended up going with MDF and using the router on the edges , the large is 10inch and the small is 8 inch . 6x6 routed base came from a piece of pine.The table legs are from Home Depot  but I think Lowes also has them.Painted everything white. I love how they turned out. I got the idea here. From Pinterest

 Relief Society Party
 My friend made the sugar scrub. Used baby food jars and spray painted the lids.
 Potato bar
 I used scrap paper on the cake stands to mach our colors for the night. Looking at the pictures I wish I had put the blue ribbon strip on top of the yellow fabric napkin.
 IKEA frames . My daughter cut the numbers on the Cricut

Another crafty friend made these bird houses.

Before and After

 When we firs moved into the house we had vertical blinds every where. Slowly they have made there way out , just two left. I love the front window but it gets very bright during the day, no direct sun but a ton of light . The curtains are perfect , a woven fabric from IKEA. It still lets a little light in but add privacy for the evenings .
 We bought two wooden dowels the unfinished brackets and some finials , I sprayed everything black.

Thanks to my helper , he gets the credit for the hanging , I handed him the tools and screws. Now I need to fill the old holes in the wall and paint ....that's another day.

Weekend projects

 My $35 yard sale find. Cant wait to get this done and filled up.

 cake stands I started , Iam going to do a bigger base and router the top edge ,which means I need more wood .I used a thin plywood and started putting trim around it but , we aren't good at the mitered corners and it was just not going well. I am making 10 for a Relief Society dinner . If I was just making 2 the trim would have been fine . Just something that I need to get better at .
This is the hardware for my new front window curtains, can wait to get this up . I have so many project going right now I cant get anything done . Relief Society is next week and I have so much to get ready.
