Onto stage two!
Last year, with two of the kids and a cousin visiting from overseas, we took a trip to California. It was right before we closed on the house, and after more than two years of renting, I couldn’t wait to get into it and make it our own. And then I came across this paper. Seafoam green and fire engine red, the very colors I wanted in my dining room.
The paper has been patiently waiting for its debut while I tried to figure out what to do with it. Once I saw those chargers I knew exactly how they and my lovely patient paper were going to come together.
To get it all done, I first needed to adhere the paper to the platter after I got it all shiny and silvery gold. A thin layer of mod podge was how I rolled with this one.
I dry brushed a bit of the silver wax and buffed it to take of the excess.
Just enough to make it, you know, shiny.
Then I added a letter (with some instant gratification, I mean, hot glue)…
and two more, and then I hung them all up.
Simple enough instruction right?
Now that we have a few readers in the house, I’m hoping they’ll use this as a gentle reminder of what we do in this room…
…and if what we do in this room is DINE hopefully it will lead to less toys left here and more kept in the playroom.
Hey, a girl can dream, can’t she?
