|Time to change my bedspread.. Mine was 5-6 yrs old.|
I had this same paint color in my bedroom , at the
other house, so continued here with the same bedspread.
I decided , since the bedroom is so small/ I would go
with a light bedspread.. White won... I bought the white
tuffed bedspread, added black/white gingham check
curtains. I had this black/white check block quilt, and
added to the foot of bed. Of course, you know me.. I had
to throw in a little red.
Note- click on photos to enlarge.
|The Bless This House sign, at top of window, was an|
old wood sign,that was found in Kenny's old barn. Very
ugly and dirty.. I brought it in, and removed the gold
metal "Bless this House part" and painted it white. I
then spray painted the wood with the hammered black
paint.. [Did I tell you, I love the hammered paint?]
Now, on to my Recycled/DIY project.
|I bought 3 Valentine wood signs [shown above] after|
Valentine's Day. I think they were 50 cents. I went to
Lowes and got  5 gallon paint sticks . [free, they
gave them to me, when I ask to buy them]. I had the
black wire already. I had the different color paints
already , from previous projects.. I bought the
black stick on words at the dollar tree for $1
|Turned the signs over to the back side..[required no sanding,|
they were smooth and no varnish on them..yea].. Yep.
the valentine stuff is on the back side, but no one is going
to see it but me.ha I painted each board a different
color.. [white, red, green], I painted the paint stick black
[because , you can see little bits of it between the boards]
I also, took a little black paint and wiped bits of black in spots
to give that aged look.
|After the paint dried, I glued the paint sticks |
on the back, to hold the boards together. Kenny
drilled holes in the top board, I put black wire
through them to make my hanger.
I then took my Sticker words, and put on each board.
Note.. sorry I did not get a photo of the sign it self.
The photo didnt come out clear..[bad photographer, for sure]
CLICK on first photo of bedroom, and you can see it on the left.
Hope you all have a wonderful week. God bless.
