Saturday Crafting

Today was such a BEAUTIFUL day here in NC! It started off a little foggy but turned into such a warm and sunny day. We were able to get a lot done around the house today and I was able to complete a few small projects that have been on my list.

I have been wanting to change up the wall above my coffee cart. I have a cute little tea pot frame that I had in the kitchen and wanted to relocate it to the coffee cart. Once I did that, I needed more to fill up the large area.

I decided to make a new small round chalk board to go on the wall. I bought a round frame at a thrift store for a dollar, someone used it to frame something they had cross-stitched. I just took the frame apart, painted the back piece with chalkboard paint (Krylon's chalkboard spraypaint), and spray painted the frame as well.

I then added my book page "N" to the wall to complete the look!

I am really loving the wall now! It's amazing what you can do just by shopping your own home to change up the look of an area.

While we are on the topic of coffee carts, I want to show off my BFF Taylor's coffee cart in her kitchen! She and I have very similar tastes and we made our teapot art together!

I also made a few things that I have had on my Pinterest boards for a few weeks now...

I made this cute jar for my vitamins...

  1. I live in NC as well Katie, near the Capital City, and yes the weather was absolutely PERFECT yesterday. I spent the day outside painting projects that I will feature on my blog this week and display in my shop. I love yard sales and Goodwill shops. The GCF by my house know me due to my frequent visits. I love your blog. Keep it up:-)

  2. I just came across this post and I'm hoping you see this! Do you know where your friend Taylor found the little stand she used for her coffee cart? That matches my cabinets pretty well and I'm not sure where to find something like that. Thank you!
