Here is a little project that I have been working on recently.
I've wanted a place to write down items that I run out of.
I need a visual, in my face reminder, especially for those things that I don't usually buy. (Like light bulbs.)
I learned to use my scroll saw to cut the curved edge. My husband was so very patient with me :)
He probably did 90% of the work as I am somewhat afraid of table saws and chop saws.
We used scraps of wood that we had, love that!
I painted it with left over chalk board paint, two coats.
I decided that it needed something on the top, so I found a silhouette of a bird online, cut it out and traced it on the frame.
I gave the bird two coats of paint and then sanded it lightly to make it look distressed.
The paint was a leftover color sample and the paint brush I stole from Big Sister's watercolor set.
Now, I am not a very crafty person, I probably didn't do it right.
But it was fun and best of all free!
