Door....Eventually Headboard (to be cont'd)

Here is a tutorial for how to distress almost any surface....

step 1. paint your base color. mine is dark grey-purple.
2. rub an old candle along the corners and edges of surface....in my case it's a door.
3. paint your top color (white) over the wax. once it dries, sand it down and you have the base color peeking through. Enjoy!!!

Framed Magnetic Board

This thing is just ugly. Found it at a yard sale for a whopping 2 bucks.....because it's so UGLY.


So, I painted it a different green, and sponged Champagne acrylic paint over that.

Then I painted the back board with Rust-oleum Magnetic Primer. Good, solid stuff, but it took about 6 coats to become strongly magnetic.

Slap some fabric in there, and you've got a magnetic space for whatever! :)




Magnetic....see?

Mother's Day!

These easy blue hearts are pretty festive.



II'm newly obsessed with these tiny 3 inch canvases. I made four, each with a happy thought for my mom.
