Hi – It’s Friday and that means more than just happy dance time -It also means that my post is up at Momtastic. I made this Ribbon Memo Board. It will provide you with 2 things:
1. A pop of color to brighten up the dreary winter months ahead.
2. Help organizing all those little papers, bills, notes, etc. that pile up on your desk.
You can click over to Momtastic to see the full tutorial on how easy it is to make.
Amazing Furniture Makeover of the Week
Mandy over at The Project Queen featured – Angela from Button Bird Designs who transformed a cast-off chair into something truly amazing. Did you see it? She did it with Chalk Paint. Painted not only the legs, but upholstery, too!! She said she has been using the chair for a week now and it is pliable and perfect. She heard all the negatives against doing it, but her gut told her to try. I love the fact that she experimented so boldly and listened to that “little voice” in her head. It is usually right.
I have never used Chalk Paint, but as Mandy@ The Project Queen stated in her post- “Annie Sloan Chalk Paint does it again. What can’t it do?” Hmmm! I wonder if I used it as a facial mask if it would remove spots and wrinkles? :)
Are You Back Into Normal Yet?
How are you feeling now that you have had 5 days since the end of the holidays? I am 95% back to normal. This weekend I plan to relax a bit and go through the stack of magazines I have collected and clip all the ideas and images from them before I recycle them. It is not a chore, quite pleasant, but I wanted to wait until I got all the Christmas stuff put away so I can truly enjoy the ritual, perhaps with a hot drink by my side. I am also going to play in my family room – the room that needs a makeover. We just cleaned the carpet and it always is interesting to see it a bit empty. Maybe it will spark an idea or two or three on what to do with it. I am seeing chalk paint in my future.
What are you up to this weekend? Whatever it is I hope you have a good one.
