I really tried to wait before showing you the pictures of my Easter decor. I really did.
I had all intentions of showing you one sneak peek DIY project at a time.
But the tutorial on how to age flower pots will have to wait…
…and so will the instructions on the bunny boxwood wreath.
You see, I have the patience of a toddler in a grocery store (sans the temper tantrums).
Unlike a toddler, I like to share. I just couldn’t wait another day to share what I’ve been up to.
Progress has been made on the board and batten hallway redo. My husband and I have made plans for a “DIY date” so we can build the gallery shelves and the air return cover together.
The work on the hallway was held up a couple of days because Mother Nature brought us our first (and probably only) snow fall of the season. It just happened to be on my birthday!
I should have relaxed my birthday weekend, but decided to take a hand-me-down picture frame from my Nannie and give it a little transformation. This is what I started with.
I took the picture out of the frame and gave the frame a good cleaning with mineral spirits. I painted it with primer and finished the frame with a coat of Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint in Provence. The picture was spray painted with flat black spray paint. Don’t worry! It wasn’t an expensive piece of artwork. Although, it is priceless since my Nannie gave it to me. I think my crafty Nannie would have been proud.
Have you noticed that I have an affinity for the color turquoise? There is a reason why I use the color blue so much in my home. You see, four years ago on Easter weekend, I found out that I had a half-sister that lived in Austin, Texas. This is my beautiful, half-sister, Tifani.
We found out we had a lot in common, such as our favorite color, turquoise. A year after finding out I had a sister, she lost her battle with cancer. So, the turquoise, or as I like to call it, Tifani Blue, is not totally random. It is a tribute the strongest woman I’ve ever met, my sister, Tifani.
I’m linking this up so some of my favorite blogs, such as:
