Beadboard Picture Wall

Wah lah here is my beadboard picture wall in my kitchen. I just love the way this turned out!!! So much brightness and a personal touch that can't be beat. I absolutely love looking at my cuties everyday.
And I just love my kiddie table and chairs.

Here is the before. Ugh so plain. Sorry to pain your eyes.

Now just for eye candy after that horrible before picture, here is a beautiful sunflower that we grew. Yumm just love it, and I can see it out of my kitchen window. Makes doing dishes a little better. :)

The custest little thing ever!

I love the way this turned out!! And it was so easy. It is so bright and fresh now!! What a difference paint makes.
First I scrubbed the grime off the old table and chairs then painted on 2 coats of primer. My daughter loved helping me with this.
This is what the table and wall looked like before.

I used spray paint for the chairs. Krylon is rolled back at Walmart for only $2.67 a can now. ;) The yellow is called Bright Idea.
Cherry Red for this one.
I used my lovely turquoise blue for the table and polyied over everything!
My girls love it just as much as I do! It's like she's hugging the table. :)

We are in the process of finishing up the bead board behind here. I also plan to put a picture/gallery wall above the bead board.

Happy 4th and a few "free" crafts

Hope you are having a great 4th of July! Oh how I love our new flag.
Best $10 for outdoor decor ever spent.
One of my favorite parts about the fourth of July is all the good food. I will be posting the best cake EVER- Fourth of July Cake. It is even requested for birthday cakes in the fall at our house.
My mother in law made these cute calendar blocks for me. One for everything month of the year. She is great on the computer.
When I get the "creative bug" I want to create now. So here are a few free crafts using supplies you probably have on hand:
Dress up your Scentsy with a little ribbon.
Using your scrap wood, paint, scrapbook paper, modge podge, ribbon, buttons and some stamps (or if your lucky your Cricut) you can make this.

Using some scrapbook paper, Elmer's glue, brads and jute make these cutie pin wheels.
Makes a cute banner or attach to a straw or skewer for a fun toy or arrangement pick. The rest of my banner was a craft fail- so I won't be showing you that. :)

  1. You can use double sided scrapbook paper or what I did was cut 2- 5 1/2 in squares and glue the papers back to back and press and dry under something heavy.
  2. On the diagonal- corner to corner cut a line and stop about an inch from the center all the way around.
  3. Punch a hole in the corners- every other one.
  4. Gather the corners and put your brad through the holes then punch through center.
  5. Punch hole in another corner to hang on a banner- or attach to a straw or wooden skewer for a pick. WA- LA!
