Old Plaques New AgainI've been busy on some decorating projects for our house. Some worked out and some did not (stupid homemade shower curtain). Here is one that worked! A while ago I got these hideous plaques at a garage sale for the (very appropriate) price of $0.00. Free! Super! Jim thought I was insane but again just hauled them away.
Here they are from way back when:
|Clearly they were old but really...when were these|
ever pretty? When did someone look at these
and say "oh yes! I have just the spot!"
So I did what any reasonable DIY blogger would do. I spray painted them white and Mod Podged the heck out of 'em with sweet pictures of my babes. Then I dug out my wedding portrait (um, not quite a portrait, I know. But remember, I was young and giddy at the time I chose it) and did a little leaning vignette on my mantel.
|I know what my fellow teachers are thinking right now.|
I know, it's also a cause/effect lesson. I picked right up on it.
Truthfully, I don't mean for them to be permanent. They aren't even fantastic copies since I just printed them on printer paper from my computer. But they make me happy and it makes me thrilled to know I paid nothing for them. How can you not smile at that belly peeping out on Ellie? Luscious. I have one more that I'm still working on and I'll post that as soon as I'm done!
If I get that stupid shower curtain up I'll post that soon too. It has the potential to be so cute! We'll see.
Hope you are all happy and well.
