Gold love sign,

Love Gold Stencil Sign

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gold has been on my mind a lot and I decide that I needed a lit bit of more gold in my apartment.  I wanted to add inspirational word to my wall and Love came to mind. I started by going through my stash and figuring out what I had and trust me I have plenty to work with, maybe little to much my hubby would say. I got my love lettering back in February during valentine. I love shopping after the holiday to get the great deals on holiday crafts and decor. I found it in one of my craft store for $1. Now to get to work on my love gold stencil sign.

I got the wood also from the craft store for a couple of dollars.

I went to work on the wood with a Martha Stewart stencil and black spray paint. I just did a fast past with the black spray paint and let it dry.

I then went ahead and just spray painted the love letter in gold and set it aside to dry as well.

Once it was all dried I just got glued the gold love stencil sign to the wood and ta da!!

All finished. I have now a lovely sign above all the loves of my life. As you can see here from the previous craft I did with my cut it out frames which I also painted gold. I have my Men fishing and my little princess eating her first plum! How time passes us all by so fast.

Gold Frames

I had won a giveaway a while back for 4 cut it out frames. I could not decide what I wanted to do with them so they stayed  untouched for almost a year. Until recently when I started to clean out my stash and decided that it was time to give my little frames a little life. I went ahead and went to work. I knew I wanted them to hold something special or better yet special people who we miss and who I love so dearly. Recently my family has lost a father and a grandfather called pop pop. He was the only grandfather my son had. My father is not a man who is part of our lives because he decided that when I was a child he did not want to be part of our lives. However, I was so happy that my father-in-law was going to be part of my son life. He was a good father to my husband and he stood for everything my father never did. My heart is sad due to the lost and the memories my son wont experience but I will have him present in my home. In his memory this is what I did.

I decided to paint the cut it out frames in gold. The painting went on smooth.

After the paint was dried I picked the pictures which reminded me most of all of Steve. Fishing!! He loved his fishing and he always wanted to take all the boys fishing. He even made a large pond in which he captured and released fish into it. Its a beautiful spot.  He never got the opportunity to do it with his grandson but my hubby did take our son.  I chose those pictures and one of my father in-law from a old fishing trip he had gone. Now I have three generation fishing. If I do say so myself they are pretty good at it.

I attache lures to the picture frames with hot glue.

Of course I do have my little princess who will also learn to fish as well and I hope to add her picture as well in a couple of years.

I also did a love sign which I used a wood pledge which I placed a stencil on top and spray painted in black. I will be showing the tutorial on that tomorrow!

I got the arrow from target which was an ugly yellow which was not going to do. I decided to spray painted it gold.

The first thing I did was get my hands on two glasses that I could use for my project. Then I used the strawberry pink collage clay and the star tip to apply it on the glass. I put a little pressure on the the bag pressed it on the glass. I applied it at the bottom of the glass.

Footstool Reupholstering

 

A couple of months ago I found a footstool at Goodwill and I reupholstered it.  At the time I has painted it white with white chalk paint and added new fabric.  I also did a cute number stencil with a sharpie on the top. I always enjoy reupholstering and its one of my favorite hobbies. When I look at a piece of furniture I am always trying to figure out how its put together. I just could not help myself and do another footstool reupholstering again.
