::A Quick Project::

Back a few weeks ago I went to Bargain favorite place to shop for ALL THINGS USED... 
I bought this little wicker mail sorter with 2 pouches for .50¢  
I snapped this picture after I started painting. Why do we forget? I dunno. 
This project isn't anything new. It's been done already--- EV.ER.Y.WHERE.'s new to me. Anyway- I've been wanting to try my hand at 'transferring'. Haven't done it yet. 
I went here-- 
snagged a couple of free printables. She has some really neat ones. 
I helped myself to No.1 and  No.2 

I was planning on using the Acetone (fingernail polish remover technique) but it
Didn't work(in this instance) . I obviously don't have the right type of printer ink for that technique. 
So I did the next best think.  I took my reversed print off transfer and traced it and filled it in with 'YE OL' BALL POINT PEN' 

...Back to the drawing board. 
  • Wet the paper with polish remover. 
  • Cover with clear plastic.
  • Rub it like 'the dickens', with the back of a spoon. 
  • Vio`la!!! 

 After painting the wicker and letting the burlap dry. I hot glued those babies on there! 

 Cute, huh? It's going in my 'Wonder Room' 
A year ago I was having thoughts of a DEN... but this is what I've come to call it; especially now that I have my crafting MOJO back,and I  am crocheting and sewing...and have an etsy store. 
So...  'Wonder Room' it is- A Den of Sorts! 


Oh give thanks to the LORD for He is good; His loving kindness is everlasting. ~Psalm 107:1

White paint and burlap can make so many things cute! :)I like the font for the numbers.

I love anything with a number - maybe it makes it so official. The burlap was a good choice for the wicker organizer. Good luck with Wonder Room, I am currently working on wonder-where-to-put-stuff room!

Hi there! I was on Audrey's blog Timeless Treasures when I found you :) Your profile intrigued me when I read for your occupation that you are a bondservant to Christ - I liked it because I, too, have placed my faith in Christ and have a sweet relationship with Him :) Anyway, you have a cute blog and your posts made me smile. I am now following you and I look forward to your future posts. Have a lovely day.
