A while back I was a guest poster at The Scrap Shoppe and this is the project that I shared. Thought I would share it on my own blog.
|Last week I really wanted a project to work on, so I headed to the local CHKD. In my search I found this not so cute cork board. It definitely needed a makeover.|
|I only payed $3.98|
|I sprayed the chicken in hopes of covering it as much as possible.|
|I spray painted the frame with some cheapy wal-mart paint to try and cover the green. For some reason it turned out with these odd reddish spots.|
|Then I painted it all over with this plaid pearly paint|
And to give it a little more shimmer and shine I added a little glimmer mist.
|I glued the small part back into the top|
|Samantha had gotten a really cute birthday invitation from a friend that had this peace sign on it, so we recycled it and I attached it with some glue to the middle of the top piece|
|I dug around in my donate bag and came up with this very cute summer top that sam had outgrown|
|The color of the paper we used in the top really looked great with this fabric color, . So I cut out the front panel of the shirt.|
|It had this really cute lace trim detail, so I kept that as a border for the bottom, just to give it some interesting detail.|
|I cut it down to size|
|I had an abundance of sparkly mod podge so I used that and covered the whole front of the cork board|
|I pressed the fabric down taking caution that it did not wrinkle in the corners|
|And I must have gooped it here, because it came through the material. I was hoping it would dry and not show, but no such luck.|
|I wanted to add some ribbon, but Samantha loved it the way it was.|
|I am very pleased with my $3.98 purchase.|
I added some clear push pins and hung it in my daughters room.
