Hi guys! Been a busy week here, have you ever forgotten what day it was? Happened to me and I missed a hair appointment, which I never do, they called and her name came up on my phone and I still didn’t connect with it, just thought she wanted to move my appt. It’s no wonder though, I’m back to picking up the girls from the bus and also was called out to work on Tuesday so I worked four straight days, not used to that just mixed my days up in my head.lol
It hasn’t stopped me from painting though with my homemade chalkpaint, this time I did a tray that I’ve had for years. Found it at a fleamarket years ago and it was done in a patriotic style, it has served me well and it’s been inside and outside of the house! Here it is on the bar in my kitchen, I used my Cottage White chalkpaint then sanded with my detail sander, love that thing!
I wanted it to look old like it came out of an old shed, here’s a close up of it.
Here is what it looked like before, you can see the difference in the colors, the lightest is the Cottage White Chalkpaint.
I also stenciled it, I don’t have a stencil brush, have to buy one of those, so I used the end of a small, sponge roller and it worked perfectly…where there is a will there’s a way!
I also waxed it with a clear wax and added black craft paint to it and it brought out the grain of the wood a little bit I think plus it made it so smooth.
I do love that stencil on it,I bought the stencils at Walmart and were about $4.95 for a lot of different ones! While waxing this tray I was looking at the wall right there with the pictures on it and got the idea to put two,open white shelves there, can’t wait to do that! Mr. K will be so happy…not! BTW my counters will be here in a couple weeks, can’t wait!
Which brings me to show you my new black granite sink, Ta Da! The sink I have now is from 1983, stainless steel, can’t wait to get this baby in!
This is with a bit of the counter by it….Thanks Lowes!
Now I’d love to show you what I won from the DIY Showcase blog Party Hop, I was thrilled to win this because their products are so good and they do what they say too…I like that in a product.
Here’s what was in the handy carrying case:
Mr. K was so excited too, the T shirt is an xl so he claimed that! I claimed the wood glue and the super glue!
He claimed the epoxy glue and the Gorilla Tape, we each promised that we could borrow off each other if we wanted to! lol
That’s not all though, I won these fabulous adhesive plate hangers from discChangers.com, all different sizes too!
Can’t wait to try these out!
So nice♥ The Gorilla Glue and Discs were delivered so fast too!
