Share Your Creations Party #35




Welcome to Share Your Creations Party #35! I hope you will link up and join in the fun this week! There are alot of great spring projects going around in blog land!
 
 
Share Your Creations
On with the features...
Gayle at Gayle's Decorative Touch turned this feed sack into an apron. What a great idea!



I couldn't believe this pretty wreath was made out of painted plastic bottles...Wow! Visit Paula at Virginia Sweet Pea for the tutorial.

Misti at Living On Cypress Hill made some pretty pillows and curtains for her breakfast nook. Love the colors!

For my creation I thought I would show you this "B" I painted yesterday. It was solid gold to begin with but it needed some color. Since I am adding in blue I thought it would be the perfect color to paint it. I also added a little green and then rubbed antique gold rub n buff around the edges. Then I took sand paper and roughed it up a little to make it look aged.  It was quick and easy and gave me the pop of blue I needed in the bookcase.

I am planning on showing you the bookcases complete next week. I swear I am not going to move one more thing!

What did you create?

You can link any item you have created, any room you have decorated, a vignette, a piece of furniture you have painted, a recipe and the list goes on and on....

 Please add a link back to my blog so others can join the party.

I saw Gail's apron when she posted it and fell in love with that, Kristen! I love your B ~ yes, I think that's a great way to bring in some of your blue. I can't wait to see these bookcases! Thanks for hosting!

Thanks for using AMACO's Rub ' Buff on your "B". Really like how this turned out - I may have to try this at home myself! I'd like to post this on our Facebook page if that's ok.

Thanks for the feature Kristen!! It was a nice surprise! And I love your B. I have an L that probably looks like yours used to. Now I might want to change it. :)

Paula said...

Thanks for featuring my wreath. My father-in-law came over last night and got a real kick out of the fact that I used plastic bottles to make the flowers.

I hope you have a great weekend.
