Hey Ya'll hows your Wall?

If you want to watch the segment on Studio 5-click HERE

Seriously-pretty sure that is the most lamest title ever!!!
Lucky You!
I promise that the post is not lame-just the title.
Hey, I can only be so awesome in one day.! :)
First, I am so happy to report that I have NO tooth pain!
Super happy about this!

So..Studio 5 is today.
They wanted me to talk about unique wall decor.

I had this most awesome idea.
Then, I went to carry it out-and it was so not awesome!
I hate it when that happens.
I changed gears and went a different way.

I like this way much better anyway.

I went to the thrift store and found some square frames for a BUCK!!
I love it when I get deals like that.
Anyway-I also picked up some gorilla glue epoxy.
If you haven't used this stuff-you so should!!
It's the bomb.com!
Super simple to use-the are direction on the pkg-so I wont bore you those.

I sprayed the frames with my fav. spray paint colors.
I then used some fabulous fabric to cover up the ugliness that was in the frame.
The green damask is amy butler and I LOVE IT!!
I just want to wrap myself up in this fabric.
But..I wont-cause thats just weird.
Anyway..
I then glued some 70's funky, plastic butterflies to the glass with the epoxy.(i spray painted these first)
These will go in 5's room.
I love how the butterflies seem like they are flying off the glass.




FABULOUS!

I used wooden spoons from the dollar store for the 2nd one.
I just painted them to match the fabric with some acrylic paint.
I sanded the edges and then inked them with chocolate ink-cause I wanted to.
I also epoxied these directly to the glass.
This will reside in my kitchen above my countertops.



So at 5's kindergarten graduation-her Fantastic teacher did this silhouette as a gift to the parents.
She loves this!
She specifically asked me if we could go to the DI and get a frame for it!
That's my girl-thrift stores all the way!!


I just primed the frame then painted it with Rustoleum Apple Green
I painted the mat with apple green acryclic and then dry brushed it with some white paint.

We both love the finished project.
Not too bad for $1.00!
Now, if only her room could be cleaned as easily as this little piece of art was transformed.
I told her I was going to yell when I cleaned her room later this week.
She just looked at me and said-
"don't you always yell?"
I promptly yelled back-NO!

Yep-I am the most awesome mom ever!!!
I will add the TV segment later today if you want to watch it!
Happy Tuesday all!!
