Pinterest Craft

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011 | Permalink


I finally finished a “craft” that I’m borderline proud of.  It didn’t turn out PERFECT but it turn out good enough to display.  It was my sister’s idea… something she found on Pinterest and wanted to try so we did!
Here are the supplies…

12 x 12 canvas and scrapbook paper… Mod Podge and brushes
And since I don’t have a way to cut letters out I had to do the first ones by hand.
This was very time consuming and annoying… I found a better way…
My great friend Adele has a cricket!  So she brought it over and cut out all the cute designs for my pictures.
After I laid out all my canvas and paper I was ready to bust out the Mod Podge.
I even had a volunteer little helper to paint on the glue for me.
After finishing the first one I wasn’t too impressed with my work.  My sister and I sadly decided perhaps we should just give up on crafts… BUT…
We discovered the next morning after all the glue had dried that our project wasn’t a total disaster after all!  I was actually rather pleased with what we ended up with. 
I don’t have a very good camera so I just had to use the one on my blackberry to get a shot of the final display. 
Hope you enjoy seeing what I’ve been working on!

Weekend Project….

Weekend Project….
Last weekend me and my sister (@Willow Blue) decided make over a little piece of furniture a friend of mine gave to me.  We sanded for literally 7 1/2 hours! 
We forgot to take a before picture but here is one of the drawers before we started on it.
This drawer had been painted over with a couple different paint colors so we have a lot of work cut out for us.
This is about half way into the sanding… a long way to go still!
All sanded… now we are ready to paint!

The final product was amazing!  So much better than we thought we would be able to accomplish.

This project was a tone of work but it was well worth it in the end.  My sister was able to use this piece in her new apartment and it really brightened up the place. 
We had so much fun on this project.  Seriously, the sanding was like therapy!  We will definitely be doing this again.
