This project was a big dose of satisfaction. I love getting out some paint and a brush to transform something in a matter of an hour. It has been forever since I have done it, and I fear I am going to have to do some shopping to find more instant gratification projects.
I found this little recipe box at Ross for $3.99, and though I don’t care for roosters I loved the lines of the box. So a little white paint, spray adhesive, and scrap fabric later….
….and I have an heirloom to fill up with all sorts of old family recipes. I just cut out the shape of the flowers from the scrap fabric and then sprayed with adhesive to apply it to the box. I used the same fabric on top. I still need to add a sealer, I am just trying to decided whether to use mod podge or a spray sealer. Hmm.
They had quite a few of these and I know I have seen them at similar stores…so go snatch some up and see what you can do with them!
I have a few notes to add today before I let you go:
- I will be over on A Few Of My Favorite Things all week sharing my favorites. I had more fun with this than I probably should have but I don’t get to normally talk about just anything here on TMH! I will fill you in everyday on what you can find over there. Today I posted about my favorite thoughtful gift, it’s a good one!
- Marta’s Blog & Business Workshop starts today and lasts all week. She will be posting twice a day with different panels each talking on a different subject. You will find a bit of my input on different panels so be sure to check it out if you are a blog or business owner.
- Last we have a fun announcement for Sunday’s segment coming up….
I shared this on Today’s Creative Blog, if your looking to do some blog hoppin’ it’s a good place to start!
