I was sitting at my desk in the woman cave today. I turned on My Doodle Lamp and that gave me a little idea. A 5 minute idea. An idea that took all of a few minutes watching American Pickers. I love that show by the way. I have a couple of small white pots that I use for pens and highlighters and thought hmmm, why not doodle them.
5 Minutes + Black Painter Pen =
Free Form Doodles!
Like I said, they now match my doodle lamp.
Instead of white painter pen on black, I did black on white.
The fun and best part is there’s no pattern, you can just doodle, squiggle, circle to your hearts content. Much better then plain white, right?
What silly moments gives you an idea?Sharing at Monday Funday. Have a great day!
I’ve been playing in spare room again. If you’ve read any of my previous posts, when I decorate I start slow and change my mind and change it up after I live in it for a bit.
Today’s post is about a chair. I’m pretty proud of this because I’ve never done anything like this before. In fact, I free handed the Chevron stripe, no measurements for accuracy of length or width, so it’s a bit abstract. But I like it!
It originally was an old kitchen chair my neighbor gave me. When I updates the spare/craft/guest room last September I painted it just plain ole turquoise. Here’s the befores and after…
Here’s the low down. I first got my trusty blue tape and eyeballed where I would make the stripes. I also added a few random stripes to the back of it.
I used Rust Oleum’s glossy black and added 2 coats, taking the tape off while the chair was still wet. A Saturday afternoon, that’s all it took. Here’s a few more pictures.
I also took a picture of my new chair next to the dresser I updated with duct tape HERE.
Have you been painting any furniture lately?
