I would like to share with you a few projects I have been working on. Things have been pretty slow moving for me recently. Last week C was sick and now this week A has been sick. I am now coming down with something and I am praying that the Hubs doesn not get "it". Whatever "it" is.
I have been wanting to create more counter space, mostly out of necessity, and came up with a great idea! I had these Gorgeous containers from Pier One and LOVED them so very much. But they were taking up way to much space. I couldn't afford to go buy new ones and everything at the thrift stores were so old and outdated.
So, I decided to create my own. If I have not confessed my love for spray paint before, let me do so now... I Looooveit!
For $.85 I was able to get three new containers! How you ask? Let me show you...
(((drum roll please)))
I purchased those tin canisters you can get with treats in them. I already had the spray paint and chalkboard paint. There were so many of these things at the thrift store. In all different shapes and sizes. The third one I haven't done yet but will soon. Don't you just love those colors? My dear friend gave me some Chalkboard markers (like Starbucks uses) for Christmas. I heart these things so much!!
3 Canisters for counter: $.85
White spray paint: On hand
Chalkboard paint: On hand
Time spent painting and creating: 20min
More counter space: PRICELESS!
Show some of your little make overs. I would love to see them!
**Added to say: These chalk markers can be found at any craft store such as Michael's, A.C. Moore, Hobby Lobby, etc.
