Some friends and I got together a few weekends ago and had a Pinterest Party! We all came with projects to do that we've pinned on Pinterest. There was painting on paper, wood, and canvas. Sewing projects- quilts and blankets. Scrapbooking and putting chicken wire on frames. Bracelets that were sewn together, and someone who says she's not crafty so she baked delicious food!
So much fun!
I painted four boards a dark brown color. Then, stenciled and painted a phrase for Chad onto them. And when I took it home, I used sandpaper to chip the paint a little bit to make it look older. I think I could have sandpapered a little more, but I really like how it all turned out. Chad put it above our bed this weekend.
And speaking of Pinterest projects.... here's my next one. I'm going to magically turn this lampshade into something fantastic. Using fabric trim and a hotglue gun. BWA-HA-HA-HA!!!
