Dollar Store Remake... And Giveaway!

Don't forget about the GIVEAWAY ending today!

I am making little projects here and there for Peyton's room... Chris spent a lot of time painting our new house (thanks babe) and then a few weeks ago he did Peyton's room. A light shade of pedal pink... look at a light pink peonies and that is the exact colour... this room will take time... especially because my back has a mind of it's own... so it will have to be a collection of small projects.

Okay... so the rant is done.

I found this little sign the other day at the dollar store and I fell in love with it... it is cute in black and white but I wanted something a bit different for Peyton's room. So I took the primer and the pink of her room... so scrap fabric I had hanging around and here is it.

I painted it with the primer because I wanted to cover the black as well as I didn't want a gloss to it that the other white in my house would have. After that was all dry I painted the pink over top and along the edges, I wasn't at all particular how the pink went on because I wanted that type of shabby look.

Afterwards I found some of my favorite fabric and cut three strips of it put a safety pin through one side and just braided it. I looked around for my stapler (cause I have the worlds best) and couldn't find it... (thanks babe) so I just super glued the ribbon to the back where the old ribbon was.

I really like how this turned out... I saw a few other signs there... who knows maybe I will get some more!

Happy Tuesday!!!

Oh and here is an amendment...
