Ok, for those of you who have seen my mantle posts before:
After sanding it, I stained it:
(It didn't look this good in real life.)
But it didn't look that much different than it did originally, so I spray painted it:
(It looks better in real life. A little.)It's actually a metallic olive color, not silver. Still don't love it. This week one of my sons said, "I like it. It's weird, like us." So stay tuned next week for another exciting adventure in Mantleville. It's like my hair, always changing color. We'll see what it looks like next week.
I need to talk to Schoolgirl Style and see what she would do with it. She'd have it totally looking cute in about 15 seconds.
And my Luau themed cake this week:
That's a Tiki Hut, not a mushroom or a volcano, as my children thought. Out of the mouths of babes.
After:Notice the open door? It's 107 here in Phoenix. But the smell of the paint on the mantle is SO strong, CPS would be knocking on my door wanting to know why I'm trying to get my children high. And yes, it is not done. Sigh. There's gotta be a pill I could take for my unfinished project issues. Actually, I think there is. They're little and round and all different colors, and they have an "m" printed on each of them.
Before this post gets totally long, I have to tell you that everything in my store at TPT will from now on be $1. (Except my Rainforest story) I'm hoping people don't get upset at that for it deflating the value of their products, or think it is a gimmick. It's really not, and I'll explain more about why I'm doing it in my next post. This post is getting too long.
Thanks for reading!
