Lately I have had these thoughts....even dreams....hubby says I talk about spray painting in my sleep....how would he know? The man snores and thinks that I talk in my sleep? Again how would Mr. Motorboat know? We are madly in love....mad +love = madly in love! Big smile.
With all the burlap excitement over blogland...I decided to jump on board with the blogcitement (my made up word) and make something...I even dreamed about this!
I took a very old stencil (Blue Ribbon Stencils), black paint, and our bestest friend Burlap and joined the three!
I worked and worked (for about 15 minutes) and made a table runner. I had so much fun, I tore up some nubby muslin and made napkins, no hemming here! I went for a rustic look...Mr. Farmer (alias Mr. Motorboat) was amused...said his mother would never use napkins that weren't hemmed. I told him his mother would never wash all the eggs I wash, chase sheep all over 3 acres when they get out, get up during the night and help lambs be born, and pick up disgusting things in the barn!
Then he changed his tactics and said "He liked the way the napkins turned out!" hmmppphhh!
Remember, my kids are at college, we are trapped in the house together! Big smile! hahaha
Anyhoo back to Diy (Do it Yourself) or DIM (Did it myself) oh yes! I like DIM
Next, I'm in to cake stands, cake pedestals, cupcake pedestals....I'm lovin' making these things. One for every holiday!
All you need is a plate, candle stand, and my friend...Mr. spray paint!
Glue them together, add a little trim, I even spray painted the lace black since I didn't have any.
Right now I am just using the pedestals for Halloween and Fall decor, not food! Spray paint and food aren't usually an appetizing combination. Big smile!
