Welcome to Picadilly & Company

Picadilly & Company, creating home decor knick knacks one party at a time. We provide you and your guests a fun evening creating a home decor items while in your home. It's a great venue for a Girls Night Out, family get together, etc. However, before we can create them in your home, I create them for my home. And there are some things I do, that I just cannot bring to someone's home. So, check out what I'm working on, maybe it will inspire you.

Currently I am preparing for our holiday homes tour. I will begin decorating for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. In the meantime I am creating different projects to decorate with. So, the ideas I am sharing do not show the final stage often due to that. In December I will post pictures of the final outcome. Thanks for stopping by. And please, check out the website above!


The Old Rugged Cross

So I have to admit, in youth group, years ago. . .I really didn't enjoy singing hymns. But, my pastor was a wise man. And now, I have to admit, I sort of miss them. In a previous post "I Heart My Husband Too" I showed you how I made a simple base using 2" boards of wood in various widths. I had one section left over and decided to using a page from a hymnal with it. I stained the wood the same, with water soluable stain, walnut color. I then decoupaged a page from a hymnal "Crown Him With Many Crowns". I spread stain all over it too. But I used a gel stain so I could wipe it down.
Once that was dry, I used wood glue to adhere a wooden cross on top.
