D.I.Y. Video | Drab to Fab

My entrepreneurial tendencies were derived from a love of crafts in my early youth.  I know I've mentioned my craft fair organizing as a 9 year old before, but it seems as if I am reverting back to some nostalgic skills.  The crafts always came out on rainy days.  Seeing that we have had above average summer days, my so called "rainy days" have become the days without a painting to work on.  I am currently in-between paintings (the wedding is this weekend for my next one), so I've decided to pick up where I left off 20 years ago and craft.

To me, crafting isn't just about keeping busy, it's about using my skills to make something functional.  I have all of these canisters from tea laying around with various things in them.  For some reason, I just can't throw them away.

Looking drab in my cheery studio, I decided to do something about it and share the wealth too.  I made a video of the transformation.  It's a rather simple project (apes could probably do it), but it's something that could spark a transformation in your life by adding glitter, using glue or just getting a new outfit to bring you from drab to fab.  Enjoy and get ready to see more videos of diy projects and tricks of the trade!

Do you have any DIY projects or tricks of the trade that you'd like me to feature?
