While out thrifting the other day,I found the two little shelves on the left for a steal
$1 each. A few days later I found the other larger one for $4
I remembered then when I saw the love hearts about this handy box I had in the shed.
It was given to me by my daughter who was throwing it out. It was painted black
I was using it to store my seeds and garden trowel.
I have been reading on other blogs all the time about chalk paint and had bought a small jar of it previously which was very expensive. I read on Pinterest how most girls were making their own.
I thought I would have a go. I used water,plaster of paris and white satin paint
I had no idea what quantities to use, so I just guessed and stirred.
It worked out perfectly
I sanded them back a little for the effect we all love, a bit chippy.
I put them up in the bedroom on a blank wall which I had been itching to do something with.
A perfect place to display my perfume bottle collection
Miss Rosie Bear loved the new look wall and the nice love heart place to sit with pearls and roses.
Miss Emily also liked the new look
I hope you had a good week finding lots of treasures.
