Happy New Year!
2011 was pretty awesome- I'm not sure how 2012 can compete / top it, but here's hoping! :)
Last week I picked up a chalkboard on one of my shopping trips. I loved the curved top, and even though I don't need another chalkboard, I just like the framed out look of it.
Finding unique shapes like this is great, because they are great for signs, and then I have less prep work!
Here's how it turned out:
Our nook was needing some graphic oomph, and I love the addition of this to the shelves.
Here was what it looked like before:
.95 cents! I couldn't even buy the wood for that cheap!
I painted the interior with a creamy white, and then used my stencil technique. The green is by Americana, and it is called Hauser Light Green.
I used a chubby brush and painted it in a primitive way
(not going for perfection on this one, just a vintage reproduction look).
A fun new look for our eating area.
Also, I finally started stripping our living room chair!! wahoo!
My hand is bruised and blistered, but I am so excited to finally give the ugly green chair a makeover.
That will be a fun project this week.
See you later!
