More chalkboard paint and pillows...

How's everybody doin?  I'm still playing with the chalkboard paint.
To answer some of you....the chalkboard paint is by Rust-Oleum and it's the brush on kind.

I saw this cute idea here in Blogland and decided to give it a try.
I painted a terracotta pot and some thrift store spoons with the chalk paint.  Then took regular white chalk and wrote different types of herbs on each one to use as plant markers.

Someone just could not resist sticking their nose in on things....

I made these pillows for my sister so she can sell them in her booth...

The pillows were made from drop cloth material and the images are from several different etsy shops.

Everyone have a wonderful weekend!

Hej Sissi.Watch your blog regularly, you have wonderful house. You have so many beautiful things - glass chandeliers, fragile accessories. I think to myself - this person is definitely not a cat, and here I see a cute kitty. I have two cats, so I ask you - how you do it that does not harm your cat these beautiful things? My cats jump everywhere, and many a thing already smashed. :-)

Hi Sissie!

That's a cute idea with the chalkboard paint. I LOVE those pillows. Does your sis sell on etsy? Someday I need to get some throw pillows for our house. You did a great job on them!


Rebecca said...
