Day 59 and 60: I had this cabinet in my bathroom that was completely ugly. I had done a collage on it a while back, decided I didn't like it and ripped many of the pictures off and painted over part of it with a little yellow paint. YUCK! So for day 59, I sanded it down and did a better job of repainting it. Then for day 60, I added trees that I cut out of black and white magazine paper. I thought it would be cool to do a symmetrical design, making the two trees mirror images of each other. I used mod podge to stick the pieces onto the cabinet, and then also painted it on top to give them a protective coating. This was so much fun to make and I felt glad that I decided to allow myself to take more than one day on a project if necessary, because it allows me to really get into whatever I am making and follow it through to the end. I spent about four hours each day on it. My favorite projects of all are those that make my home feel like a more beautiful and happy place.
