DIY-someone's trash is now my treasure!


So I know a lot of bloggers are all about DIY (do it yourself) projects...I have zero interest.
I don't own a hot glue gun and our crafting supplies are all crayola, Judah sized and I am
fine with that. I admire those who love a good DIY project and my hat is off to you.

But when we drove down the street and I spotted in someone's garbage the makings of a
fun toy...well...I made my husband pull the truck over and toss this
beautiful gem into the back seat.

Isn't it lovely?
ha.

I pulled out a bucket of soapy water and my magic eraser...

Next thing I knew it was all shiny and looked like it had potential...

So I persuaded my super handy husband into finishing this DIY project...he can do a DIY like nobody's biznizz...

And Vwala! The finished project...

Judah loves playing with this toy, it is a ton of fun...and I kinda like that we DIO (did it ourselves)...

This may be the only DIY post I ever do...I hope it was enjoyable...

Go Lance! This is awesome. You guys did a great job restoring that little gem yourselves! Lucky little Judah.

This is awesome! I am so impressed. And I'm also in AWE of the magic eraser. Seriously?!! I feel like this post should be sponsored by magic eraser. I've never heard of that thing but I am in love. Thanks for the DIO and the hot tip :)
