Last week I got this brilliant idea. We had this little rectangle wooden box down in our family room near our wood stove, that held a lighter and gloves. Well, I stole it. I'm thinking if I don't mention it, the hubs won't notice it's missing. I'm a little sneaky like that.
Not much to look at is it? I painted it eggshell using acrylic paint. I wanted to paint 'fleur de lis' on it, however as I have mentioned before I am not artistically inclined. Therefore I made a stencil using my Cricut. After the eggshell paint dried, I applied the stencil and dabbed black acrylic paint on.
Being the impatient person I am, I used my hair dryer to dry the paint. After removing the stencil I sanded the whole thing to give it that aged look. I already had 3 old glass bottles, which I placed inside. I picked some daffodils and there ya go. Quick, free decoration. Free because I already had everything. It's amazing what you can do when you start looking around your house.
Oh, by the way in case you didn't know, fleur de lis means lily flower. You probably knew that, I didn't. I did know that fleur meant flower, but I didn't know what kind. Didn't know you were getting a french lesson did ya?
Thanks for visiting.
