This Just in....I tried chalkboard paint!

Here's a nifty little idea that I came up with last week after being
slapped with  grasiously given  a thousand old chairs!
(seriously it was more like 33 but they are in STACKS!...geez!)

I FINALLY got my hands on a can of chalkboard paint.
I know ....I know.....where have I been right??
Anyway, I grabbed a piece of cardboard and made a stencil.
Freehanded...nothing perfect.
Mostly because I'm impatient and want to see the finished project already.
Anybody else like that?
And here ya go!
You could also do this on the back of the chair as well!
Took like 5 minutes a chair.
After I did this (and what you don't see here) is
I took and old feather pillow and cut it in half.
(YES....there were feathers......everywhere.)
I wanted to create a chair seat for each chair I did so I figured this would be easy too.
It really was except for the feathers  and the fact that my sewing machine is inside the shop and wellllll
let's just day that the feathers were an issue.
You can imagine.
Who knows what's going to get chalkboard paint on it next! This stuff is a blast!
I realize I'm probably  the very last person in blogland  to try this stuff....
But I am hooked and if you haven't tried it yet either....You better get goin!
You'll Love it!
Have a great day.
This post was invited to be a part of Thrifty Tuesday on Coastal Charm!

Rub a Dub Dub!

Hello Friends!!!
Anyone remember this AWESOME antique  french zinc farmhouse tub that I went on and on about it being my super
favorite piece that I took to the Bella Rustic show last Sept.??
I was POSITIVE that it would sell.
It didn't.
I  had one girl who wanted it but her biggest vehicle was a mini cooper.
Now I can pack a car...but um...there was just no way.
So I brought it home, where it has been resting in the trailer ever since.
I hadn't given up on it. Noooo way!
I was waiting for the moment when I became inspired about what I could do with it and where.
That moment happened this morning via pinterest!!!
Take a look at THIS!
Is this not the most gorgeous idea!!!???
SO now I have a problem.
Do I keep this beauty and enjoy it like this at my house...
Do I make it my Super Favorite Piece that I take with me to Lucketts Spring Market in May?
I can't quit looking at it.
I even went outside and opened that trailer and had to let tub know I've got big plans for her!
She was as excited and I am!
Thank You Pinterest!
