Skeleton Keys!



Just a quick post this morning before I go to work, I didn’t even start the big project that I mentioned I’d like to do in my last post, just not enough time what with working everyday till Easter. I did take the time to do this though…very quick and easy and I think sometimes we need these quick ones so that it satisfies the creative goddess in us!
I started with a GW frame that I found for .99 and painted Cottage White ( because I still have alot left ) and these faux skeleton keys I found at JoAnn’s for half off!

A scrap of drop cloth fabric…don’t you just love this stuff?

My trusty little glue gun, I love using the smaller glue guns!
P4210573
I have some walls that are bare so my focus right now is finding something for them and although small it will be a great filler♥

I don’t have any black glaze but I do plan to find some soon, so I watered down some black craft paint and used that instead, I think it turned out neat!

The cost? About $3.50 to do, makes me happy:)

Got to go get ready! I’m linking to these great Friday parties:
Show and Tell Friday
Flaunt it Friday
Thanks lady’s for hosting, always so much fun!

Oh Rondell...I love it!! It looks great!! I might have to do one of these for my hallway. It's looking a little bare...I took all the game-boards down this past week. I'm slowing gathering some things to hang up.
Have a wonderful Easter!!
hugs,
Cindy
