Just print off any picture you want, then spray paint a piece of wood black, cut the picture to match the size of the wood. Using Mod podge coat the wood then lay the picture on top. Once it has dried thoroughly, use sandpaper to rough up the edges, then put a layer of mod podge over the picture. Put some eye hooks and use pretty ribbon as a hanger and voila.

The secret to painting old outdated hardware. LOVE this! First, spray the hardware with a couple of coats of the chrome color and then do a light dusting of gold. This gives the knobs a look of pewter and gives the color some dimension so it doesnt look so spray painted!

This trio of coastal decor frames are a versatile beach wall art grouping with fingerling starfish, delicate sand dollars, and knobby starfish. Two frames measure 6 3/8 x 8 3/8 and the larger one measures 7 1/4 x 14 1/4. I have arranged these pieces in different groupings to show their are several different possibilities. Notice the beautiful filigree like border which I painted black then covered with a soft vintage white. I lightly distressed back to the black to highlight and to create a cottage chic or modern vintage look. I discovered recently that starfish not only represent healing and regeneration but also infinite divine love. That being said, it would be most beautiful anywhere in your home where you can be reminded of the love our heavenly Father has for us. This coastal cottage wall art grouping is ready to hang and add beauty and meaning to your decor. When purchasing, please send me a converation via Etsy on how you would like your shells affixed…either vertical or horizontal…maybe a combination of both

10 paintloss spray paint Im obviously a huge fan of all types of spray paint. However, my personal fave is high gloss spray paint when it comes to coating small accessories or ceramics. The only problem is that not every spray paint color is sold in a high gloss finish. To remedy this inconvenience you can buy whatever color spray paint you want in a flat finish and then get a can of clear gloss. It instantly gives anything a glossy, factory-like finish.

For the ironing board cabinet, she cut the back off a regular-size cabinet and recessed it into the wall. She then made the molding piece and attached it to the wall above the cabinet to make it look like a built-in unit. She built the fold-down, swiveling ironing board system herself from brackets and hardware she bought at The Home Depot.

In the last few days, I have received several emails and comments asking for a “how to” on how I paint my furniture. Honestly, every piece is different but typically we do the same few steps. I will use my dresser redo to explain things since that is where the majority of the questions came from! You gals are so sweet with all of the compliments! For this piece, it was a dark wood with a glossy lacquer of some sort over top. I started by lightly sanding the dresser to remove some of that shiny junk off… I know, I sound so professional 😉 Then, I wiped off the dust from sanding. This roughened up the wood a bit and since I was using spray paint, I wanted it to stick really well. I also recommend using Gloss Off. You can get it from Home Depot and it helps the paint adhere better. Next, I removed all the hardware and put it in a sandwich baggie so I didn’t lose anything. Losing screws and hardware = not cool. Not like I’ve lost any in the middle of a project or anything 😉 Next, I took all of the drawers …
