I felt like trying something new today and decided to work on a couple of painting projects.
First off I bought a 2nd hand picture frame but wasn’t entirely happy with the shiny red colour and the photo of whoever the heck that woman is.
So my youngest and I took it apart and painted the frame green.
I then stuck in my second sons (he’s now 16) photo from when he was in nursery. Awww! :-)
The youngest and I took it outside to spray paint it. We had on our painting gear. :-)
And this is the almost finished result! I’ve decided spray painting it wasn’t the best move if I want a more professional and uniform finish. So I’m looking at this as the first coat, and will head out to hardware store later this week for paint more suitable for wooden furniture. I’m still happy about it though. Not sure if I’ll keep it as a stool or use it as a side table in my bedroom. I’m planning on having white bedroom furniture. :-)
With everyone in bed and I’m here thinking of what else I can do in my living room to get my chosen colour theme going, I decided to turn the daisy granny square I crocheted recently into a cushion cover. I crocheted it in the accent colours I want and it’s now 18x18 inches. I’ll crochet a back for it in brown and will decide on a closure for it then. Not sure if I’ll do a plain envelope closure or a buttoned envelope closure.
Now I better get some sleep. I have a rasta tam order I need to fill so may not get any personal crafting done tomorrow. Glad I managed to get something done today though. Had a very productive Sunday!
