Back a few weeks ago I went to Bargain Land...my 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.
but...it'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.
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
