After we painted the front door, the trim around it was looking, for lack of a better word, OFFENSIVE.
Seriously, every time I went downstairs I felt like it was giving me the finger.
At my most recent trip to the hardware store, I found a $3 can of mismatch paint in a chocolate-brown. I figured for 3 bucks if it came out looking like crap (pun intended) I could paint over it and not cry!
It worked out PERFECT!
YAY! One door frame done, 9 to go. Oh and 7 window frames. And about 2 miles of baseboard….GAH!
So I had to go to Ocean State Job Lot the other day cause it’s the only place that sells my FAVORITIST granola EVA:
At $4 for a pound and only 6 ingredients (all of which I can pronounce!), it’s awesome!!
So anyway, as I’m pulling into the parking lot I see a huge yellow banner advertising the store next door is closing, so I swung in there really quick. It was like all the cast-off junk from Chez Marshall’s and Home Goods. It was slim pickins but I found some cute stuff:
(This is gonna get a nice coat of bedroom blue paint…)
(ugh, blurry pic, sorry)
I also got another frame and a cute vase that’s in my bedroom (Officer M is sleeping now so you’ll have to wait for a picture).
So the frames weren’t that pretty but I figured I could paint them. Then as soon as I walked into OSJL I see this:
Very pretty gray yarn. So the wheels are a turnin’ and I decide this would work on my ugly frames:
I keep seeing all these cute picture frame walls all over the crafty blogland and I NEED one for the bedroom. Here is my version:
Can’t wait to put it up on the wall!
K, gotta go. If you’re in my neck of the woods – Enjoy the snow!!
