buttoned up...


Project Challenge Week 3....Buttons

For the life of me I couldn't come up with something to do with buttons!
I searched Pinterest, but wasn't up for a necklace, napkin rings, monogram, flowers,
clock, pillow, frame, hair bows, or ornaments with buttons. Time was closing in, I was
desperate, a trip to the button section would surely be the inspiration I needed.
I saw all those gorgeous buttons and thought ooooh, I wish I had something with pretty 
unique buttons on it....bingo!      

I bought this coat about five years ago at Nordstrom, the bright apple green color works
 for fall, winter and spring with different scarves and gloves,
 but I've always thought the buttons were...ordinary, at best.


Ta Da!


The top button is larger, since I don't usually button it anyway, I chose pretty over function! 



I'm sure you're in for some clever button projects at these ladies' blogs, and
stop by Shauna's for a fun GIVEAWAY to end the series!!! HERE

The new buttons look great! I'm somewhat of a button collector, but never have enough of the same to complete a project :)

I love that color Pam. Green is my favorite color and the buttons give it more pizazz.

I have a coat missing a button...so you have given me the perfect solution..I love the "fancy" lone button at the top and bringing that button to the back of the coat is genius....I love that color...
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!!

The buttons are the perfect touch to doll up the coat! I love it!

What a great idea!I especially love that top button! I've done that before but without the special top one so now I can copy your little trick!

Pam, the buttons are a great addition!!! Upped the look 100%. I especially like the large button on the top and on the back! Very clever!

Wow! It is amazing what a simple change of buttons will do to a piece of clothing. I saw the cutest button cookies on Pinterest. You run a ribbon through them and take them to a cookie exchange--so cute!
