I hope you are all having a great week.
I'm so excited to share with you my no-paint kitchen subway art!
I love subway art floating around blogland. But, it looked like a lot of work!
I mean, A LOT. More than I could possibly handle and still stay sane.
Then, I stumbled across this kitchen towel in the clearance section of my favorite store, Target. $2! Outstanding. I bought a frame, also on clearance ($3) and ran home to try it out.
Only, the frame wasn't very big. I wasn't getting all the words in that I wanted to! Augh! What's a girl to do?
Well, I sadly put the project aside. Sigh. I was so excited! Don't you hate when things just don't work out exactly like you want them to?
But, I had some time to kill while the kiddos were at preschool this morning...and I found this frame for $4 on clearance at JoAnn's! Woo-hoo!
I ran home and made it work. A little trimming of the towel and some spray-tack later, I had my lovely no-paint subway art!
Remember that other frame I bought at Target? Never fear! I put it to good use! I finally tried my hand at freezer paper stencils...first time! It worked great.
Again, I used a towel I bought at Ikea for like, $1 per towel. The image is from The Graphics Fairy. Love that gal.
I mixed some black with some pearly white paint and just dabbed it on with a foam brush. After it dried, I removed the freezer paper and ta-da! More lovely kitchen art.
I'm pretty happy with my new kitchen art!
Now, on to the second project. Remember my first attempt at a sunburst mirror? Well, I had another mirror...and all these sticks leftover from a Christmas project. So, I decided to go "natural" with my sunburst this time.
I like it. It's kind of reminding me of Halloween....but for now, we'll keep it.
Yes, I'm that lazy. And...I used a humungo nail on the wall and I don't feel like patching it up! Heh. Shhhh...don't tell hubs.
