Project update:


I hope everyone is having a great Holiday Season. I know I am! I actually took a week off work and have enjoyed being with my family. I have also been taking this time to catch up on some projects I have been wanting to make on Pinterest! Oh how I love Pinterest. So really this post has nothing to do with frames just some things I wanted to share with you that I thought everyone would enjoy making. 

The first project I made were these cute frames. "I Love You Because..." click here to see the original pin. I actually had these old frames from ikea sitting in my garage. The only thing I did was paint them white. Talk about easy! The next step was to create the words. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the shapes with vinyl but it would be just as easy to print something off your computer.
Then with a dry erase marker you can write on the glass the many reasons why you love your family. I made one for my hubby and one for my son.

My next project was to paint my son's table in his toy room! Boy did it need a new paint job. I decided to paint just the top with chalkboard paint. Easy and he loves it.
Click here for the original pin. They used an old coffee table, it is so cute!

 Last I made a Christmas tree using my son's hand prints. We both had fun making this one! I used an old piece of wood painted it brown first, let it dry then painted the top coat white. I distressed it using sandpaper and then just stamped my son's hand. This project will be great to look back at over the years. Click here for the original pin. They used canvas.
So there ya have it. I made a few more projects but these were my favorite and you would probably be bored if I posted them all, HAHA! If you want to follow my Pinterest boards click here. Also I have linked this up to Tator Tots and Jello and I Heart Naptime, both blogs are awesome and  have some great stuff over there. Head on over and check it out!
