Remember when I said that anything not nailed down was getting redone? Well, I was looking for some more decor for the top of my kitchen cabinets and didn't want to spend any money. So, I started scouring my kitchen cupboards and found a wealth of vases that have somehow traveled with me over the years from apartment apartment, never really being used, so I thought, what can I do with these?
Just paint them white! Here is a really pretty vase that had a good shape. I just primed it with some Kilz...
Spray painted it white and voila!
I am digging the white and beige colors. Now, I can start adding some pops of color!
Remember the corner redo with this??
I came home one day from work, after I had done this project, and my beautiful stepdaughter had her dad take down the chalboard with "CREATE" and was coloring on it on the floor. I told her, while that one is not to play with, I will definitely make you one!
So, I found an old dry erase month calendar that was no longer being used and taped it off and spray painted it...
And then hung it up right by her bed! Perfect! I hung it so she could take it down from the wall if she wanted to use it. I promise, when I get the curtains for the girls' room, I will show the finished product. It really is cute!
I hope everyone has a great Fourth of July weekend!!! I love this time of year. I am so excited to hear "Proud to be an American!"
And to take a scene from Drop Dead Gorgeous (Brooke, I know you are feeling me on this one)
Gladys: Wait, wait, wait. I think I just thought of a theme... "Proud to be an American".
Interviewer: So what was the theme of the pageant last year?
Gladys: Oh, that was "Buy American".
Interviewer: And the year before that was?
Gladys: "USA is A-OK"
Interviewer: And can you remember the theme of your favourite pageant?
Gladys: Can I? "Amer-I-Can!" People ask me where I get this, I don't know, maybe it's a gift from God, or something.
