I just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful comments you left about my 'finds' that I painted this weekend, it means so much to me to hear what you think!
I am trying to get ready for our Annual Art in the Park coming up this Saturday to sell some of my picture frames. So yesterday I started making some more to bring with me.
Here is a quick peek at my craft room.
We converted our attic into a bonus room and I claimed it as my room!!
It is in need of a change, but that will have to be a winter project.
My assistant (this is Bosco) destroying my inventory!
After about an 1/2 hour of gluing and sanding, I was getting antsy to start on my tool box that I purchased last weekend. I bought the paint and supplies yesterday before work, so I had this great idea that I could still make frames in between coats of paint on the tool box!
Here is the tool box as I purchased it. No cool paint-box this time, I couldn't find anything big enough (sorry honey). But at least I got it off the driveway!
I purchased the new "1 can is equal to 2 cans" primer and paint.
I have to say it worked AMAZING!! I only used 1 can!!
The paint color was Aqua and I think that I only used 3/4 of the can for this and it covered great!
Even covered my fingers!! Maybe I should have worn gloves?
I also purchased some rope that I thought would look great on the handle. It was pretty to easy to put on after I decided that a staple gun would be less messier than gluing it on.
It got a little tedious wrapping the rope, so I enlisted my daughter to help!
Finished up with the last staple AND..........
I am really happy with the way it turned it out!
Apparently everyone needs to be in a picture! She (this is Baja) jumped up as I was snapping pictures!
Now I have a great place to put all my magazines that are always scattered all over!
Needless to say, I did not work anymore on the frames. The tool box was just so much fun!!
Looky what else I did last weekend!!
This was a fun project as well! Layla from The Lettered Cottage made one for her mantel and I thought that it would be a great piece for above my bed!
It was so much fun doing projects again, I haven't really done any in a while. You are all so inspirational and really got my wheels-a-turning again!
