I have been wanting to do this project for
quite some time and have finally
done it!
I have seen this same idea
around blogland
and Pinterest but mostly
using canvas.
It was VERY easy so I will
keep this post short and sweet.
I had an un-painted cabinet door
that I purchased at our local
I purchased the lettering from
Hobby Lobby.
I lined up the lettering how
I wanted it to look.
I hot glued to lettering in place.
Making sure to use enough
without it expanding
out the edges.
I then spray painted it using
Rustoleum's Heirloom White.
I could have primed it first but couldn't find
my primer so I just went for it with
the paint.
I haven't decided if it needs another coat
or not. Maybe tomorrow if it cools
off I can get another coat of paint on it
if necessary.

I think it turned out pretty cool!
Hope you are safe, where ever you are.
Thanks for stopping by!

3 picture frames & 3 Starbuck's bottles

Had a little time to
get some new items
finished for my space at
Marketplace 3301.

Do you have a JoAnn fabric in your area?
Well...we just got a newer, bigger
JoAnn Fabric.
Of course, I couldn't resist.
I went in search of Chevron patterned
fabric in blue tones but came up empty handed.

I found some pretty cool scrapbook paper
and card stock instead.

My neighbor gave me 4 unfinished
wooden frames.

I spray painted 3 of them.
White, Brown, and Black.

Then I layered the decorative
scrapbook paper over colorful
card stock for the frame background.

I added vinyl to each one making them all different.

Here is how they turned out:

because when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing
How true is that?

If only Escape was this easy.

This frame has a clothes pin so you can pin a picture
and change it out!
All kinds of love goin' on.

Yes, that is a pic from my wedding day!

I also painted 3 Starbucks bottles and added vinyl to them.
No real tutorial on how to do this. Just put paint on the inside, roll it
around until it is covered and try to get out the excess. Let dry.

Here they are:

I made a set of these before but, I think I like
this set better.
