Ok...so I am not sure if I ever told you how much I love to yard sale, thrift shop, and goodwill dig :) it is one of my favorite ways to fine inspiration!
So...this pice was one of my yard sale finds...before it was very non descript...and I suppose a little ugly to most...but for me, inspiration hit!
I used krylon satin black (my new fave basecoat!) To paint it after removing the old corkboard, screws for notepad, and covering the key hooks...o, and removed the faux leather "embellishments"
Amd the finished piece...
Hope you enjoy!

I got these hangers as plain wooden ones at Micheals for $2.50 each...I bought 5 but only have pics of the one. Sorry :-!
So, I used spring green folk art acrylic paint to coat the hanger. I didn't sand it as I usually do, but it turned out ok. :-)
I used 3 coats for good even coverage. I used the green patterned paper (will check on the pack it came from and add it once I can get to my craft area). I traced the outline of the hanger onto the paper and attached it with modpodge. I used my fingers to rub out the bubbles. I let that dry and then sanded around all the edges. I added a little paint to the edge of the paper to blend. Once dry I added my epoxy sticker and tied coordinating ribbon to the metal base of the hanging part of the hanger. Then I sprayed it with acrylic sealer. I did use 2 coats...note...please remember to do this part outside as the fumes can make you VERY sick.
Thanks for stopping by!

So, I have decided to set a personal goal of posting to my blog at least 4 times a week. For those who are "veteran" bloggers, do you think this is an attainable goal? I have many projects in my head...just need to get them applied! Hoping this will make it a bit easier to do more for the shop and more personally :-) look for me soon!

We used Sesame Street Characters cricut cartridge to cut Elmo out at 3 inches. We cut 2 out, one for each side. I found some FABULOUS heart paper, also at Target's Dollar Spot. Covered the mailbox, being careful to press it around the bottom of the flag end to get the imprint of where you need to cut.
I used Elmo to help cover the part I had to cut outside the flag,as well as lots of ribbon, not only to decorate but to camouflage it!
Stay tuned for another Valentine's Day project tomorrow!
