Tortilla Roll-Ups

It's Super Bowl weekend and it's all about the big game, right?  Personally, I only watch for the commercials and the half-time show, but I do enjoy making food for it.  This recipe is easy, tasty, and always a crowd-pleaser.  

I recently made it when a friend came for lunch and she wouldn't leave without the recipe, so, dear readers, let me share it with you!
Here's what you need:

1 pound of deli meat, sliced thin.  
Large flour tortillas.
Red peppers - get about 3.
Garden Vegetable cream cheese.

Spread the cream cheese on the tortilla.  Don't be stingy!
Once the entire tortilla is covered with a good layer, add the lettuce.
Next, add the red peppers, which have been sliced.
The next layer is the deli meat. 
I used honey ham.
Start rolling up the tortilla.
Once it's completely rolled-up, start slicing with a serrated knife.
I get about 8 slices from each tortilla.  Put them on a pretty tray and dinner, lunch, or snack is served!

We all know you want to make these for the big game tomorrow, so, off you go to the store, and be sure to let me know how everyone likes them!  
Have a great weekend and....enjoy the game......or the commercials......or the half-time get the idea!

How To Decoupage Dresser Drawers - With Napkins!

Welcome back!  Last week you saw a garage sale dresser transformed with paint and decoupaged napkins.  If you missed it, click here

Today I have a little tutorial showing how it was done.  Let's get started, shall we?

The drawers were sanded down to bare wood and the edges were painted black to match the rest of the dresser.  The napkins were found at the Dollar Store.
Notice they are 2-ply napkins?  You only need one, so separate those layers! Iron the one-layer.  It helps when you are ready to lay it down on the wet decoupage medium.   Since the napkins were not wide enough to cover the entire drawer, I was going to have to piece them together.  These napkins also had a very definite pattern that was going to need matching, so it was time for some measuring.  I found the middle of the drawer and matched it to the middle of the napkin.  Then I marked the edges of the napkin on the edge of the drawer with chalk.  See the white (chalk) dot? There are actually two of them as guides for …

The Water-Logged China Cabinet

Here's the back story on this piece... The storage unit we rented was in an old factory and they were cleaning-out.  When we arrived with the movers (same company) I spotted the china cabinet that had been left out in the rain for a loooong time.  It was warped, split, peeling, and had no glass.  Since I'm an idiot...ahem, love a challenge, I offered to buy it.  The owner told me to take it - no charge.  He also gave me the maple table for free.  If you missed that makeover, click HERE.  Since I had no room for the china cabinet, it sat there until we moved into the new Cottage.  
The china cabinet made it as far as the back porch and as soon as we were 'settled' aka: had a functional kitchen and bathroom, I got to work. The original plan was to reglue the veneer and try to add stain to blend in what was missing.  That plan was tossed aside as soon as I realized the extent of the water damage.  Take a closer look:

The more sanding I did, the more veneer came off. It was s…

The Little Stepladder That Could!

We have been so fortunate to have some perfect summer weather - low to average humidity with temperatures in the low 80's...just perfect for a little DIY on something that was trash! Let me show you the little stepladder I found in a trash heap.  That's right, I have no shame...and I'm so glad, because I love how it came out!
Here's how I found it: Dirty and rickety are the best words to describe it.  Someone tried to stabilize it with nails.  Needless to say, it didn't work! It had cuts, dings, and paint drips all over it, and it was FREE!  
Time to make it pretty.  The first step was to wash it with good ol' soap and water. After its bath, the only thing I did to prep it was to hammer those nails back in so they weren't a 'catching' hazard.  Since it will never be used as a ladder, I wasn't worried about stabilizing it, and I wanted to be able to fold it up again when it gets put away for the winter. I grabbed some leftover white chalk paint, watered…
