(Do you like my creative title today?? ha ha!!)
Happy Tuesday people!! At the moment, we are having our carpets cleaned. Noah is at school, and Josh, Hayden, and I are stuck in the kitchen together. 2 of my favorite people and yummy food. Not too bad if you ask me :)
Yesterday I gave my trigger finger a small workout and knocked out a few quick projects with spray paint. The first one turned out great, but the second one may be a fail. Take a look....
I have had this brass bowl on my coffee table ever since it didn't sell at the holiday boutique that my sis and I did back in November. I loved the shape of it, and it's the perfect size to hold our coasters. The brass wasn't too bad actually, but I felt like sprucing it up a bit.
So fresh and so clean clean :)
My second project was a re-do from another item that didn't sell at the boutique. See that white framed chalkboard?? I made it out of a $3 frame that I found at my local thrift shop. Can you also see the very faint writing on it??
I asked my friend who was hosting the boutique if she had any chalk I could use (I forgot mine) to write the price on it. The one piece she could find was kind of old and barely showed up, but oh well! Anyway, when I got home from the boutique and unpacked all of my unsold treasures, I decided to keep the chalkboard for myself. I went to erase it so I could write something fun on it and that old icky chalk was like permanently on there. It was so strange. Nothing I tried worked. Seriously!!! So, I stuck the thing in my garage and planned to re-spray the chalkboard when I had some free time. Yesterday, I took it apart and sprayed the frame a nice shade of gold, and also resprayed the chalkboard paint. I don't know what was in that weird chalk, but I re-sprayed the chalkboard paint with like 5 coats and it still wouldn't go away!!!!! See....
So, that's it for today. My sweet little Hayden had a 103 fever all night so we're laying low today (in our kitchen, ha ha).
Have a great day!
