While I strive to post original ideas, I also believe that part of blogging, for myself anyhow, is the sharing of ideas, whether new, or inspired by others. While many may have seen these ideas already, some may have not, and if I can pass along this inspiration to others, then I have fulfilled one of my missions in starting this blog. Ok, enough of the sappy stuff, and on to the projects!
My first project is this cute chalkboard painted silver tray. This is a thrift store find, bought for $1.95. It was the perfect size for what I had in mind. Check out Kari & Kijsa's version here.
I found chalkboard markers at Staples, and added a monogrammed F. I envision writing cute seasonal sentiments & inspiring quotes.
I used a sharp blade on the painters tape to get an exact edge to follow the curves and details of the tray, and simply applied two coats of blackboard spray paint.
When I saw Kari & Kijsa's boxwood wreath, I had a mission: I.must.have.one. I adore the classic simplicity. I searched for months, and finally found this oval beauty. I added this black ribbon, and will be making an F monogram (my first attempt with the jigsaw ended in disaster.....I'm waiting until hubby returns from working away to give me some much needed assistance!). I may modify the wreath with the seasons, either by changing the ribbon colour, or adding other embellishments.
Truly a wonderful place for inspiration, this Blogland!
