Hey Y’all … Long time no see! Some of you may have noticed that I have been awol from my blog the last couple of weeks.. First I would like to thank you all that sent search messages and emails asking “what’s going on”.. Well I’ve been doing what my Doctor ordered and relaxing doing NOTHING. My ole blood pressure has been sky high and they’ve been playing around with my meds, and the ole kidneys decided they wanted to be ugly and start up their troubles again.. so I have so-so days and really bad ones. The last few days have really been great so I decided that I’d get back into finishing up a few projects .. which I’ll be spreading out over the next several days for you.
I’m kicking off the week with a couple of Thrifty Treasure finds..
First this frame.. paid 1.00 at Goodwill .. it was a yellow tag item and yellow was the 50% color that week. It didn’t have a glass.. but I knew I didn’t need one cuz I was turning this lil beauty into a chalk board.
Next I got these 2 frames for .50 cents ea .. also from Goodwill.
I took the yellow frame .. tossed the print inside.. and sprayed it white.
I love the little details on it… Added a piece of plexiglass that I had which was perfect size.
And Voila .. New Chalkboard for my Kitchen!
I had saw this cute idea on another blog .. Angie @ The Happy Homebody made these cute framed Pears..
I took the other 2 frames and sprayed them black.. took a pear cut it 3/4 as shown below …
And made these..
I’ve not decided if I’m gonna keep the background white or not.. It looks a bit bold with my new window treatments colors I’ve chosen .. but.. I’m also adding white china dishes to the walls .. so we’ll see how it looks then. If I change them you’ll be seeing them again on another addition to Met Monday.
