Well "project Amy" is back! At least that is what my hubby has proclaimed, and since everybody is scared I might start painting them, maybe it is true. Well here are some pictures of some random small projects that I have done the last few days. Some are better than others, but all were fun to work on!
Well the first project I thought I would work on was creating some Zebra printed coaster to match my daughters new room. I can not remember if it was Lowe's or Home depot who advertise buying cork board coasters and modge podging fabric onto the coasters. Well when I was at Michael's the other day I asked if they had cork board coaster and was told "no" but I could buy a roll of thin cork board and cut it into circles. I thought that was a pretty good idea - that is until the tight wad in me saw that it was approx $9.00 for a roll of cork board. However on my way out of Michael's I passed their cute little (addictive) $ section and I spotted the above Rooster coasters. Cute, but not quite the look I needed, but I thought I bet I can modge podge on that! So you guess it, I bought a package and home I went to modge podge Zebra print scrapbook paper onto the coasters. One coat on the coaster, then apply paper directly onto coaster, then seal coaster with another coat of modge podge. Then for good measure I sprayed with a coat of varnish. Here is how they turned out:
Walmart in their craft section their rub on decals caught my eye. I simply love Fleur De Li's! What do you know they had some! So I grabbed them up not knowing for sure what I was going to do with them. I came home and was putting my groceries up and my eyes spied my boring, plain canisters. Yeah~ I felt like Fancy Nancy (Fancy Nancy is a character from a children's book series, who fancies everything up, she does not like plain!) So I came home, and spray painted the silver lids black. Then went to town rubbing on those decals.
Here is a picture of my finished canister set on my kitchen counters:
I love working on small projects around a house that personalizes the space to where it reflects the occupants personality!!! Thanks for letting me share my projects!
