I just received my free sample of Valspar paint! It came with a $5 off a gallon of paint too!You can still get yours too! Go HERE to pick your color and request the sample!
Valspar had an overwhelming response when this first came out so they have put a restriction on the amount of samples that go out. If the "sample store" is closed, be sure to check it each day...the earlier the better.
I plan to use my Italian Roast color as a base before a glaze treatment on a bookshelf I bought. I will be doing a sample board to test the coloring. The steps will be coming soon!
I took the frame apart, took the glass out and the little square insert that was around the mat, and sanded everything to add texture so the paint would adhere well. I then spray painted thin layers until it was a solid black. I used Black Satin Spray paint from Micheal's for about $3 after coupon.
Note: this frame is plastic, not wood. Spray paint works on all surfaces as long as you buy the correct paint...read your labels!
I have two of these frames and am currently working on the second one. I will post a picture when i fill them and hang them on the wall
I have had this shutter in my garage for years. It was already painted red (horribly, I might add). I roughed it up a bit with some sandpaper and hung it on the wall.
It's perfect for the random family pictures you get in the mail and for cards for birthdays or holidays (valentines day!)
There are those curtain rod clips again! I had to twist the hook on the end so that it would hang from the slates on the shutter.
If you don't have these clips just hanging around your junk drawer, remember I also found the clips at Joanne's in a package of about 20. They are sold in silver, so you can either leave them or spray them any color you want!
This can also be used as a holiday decoration. Throw some cute holiday pictures, shapes...make it your own! It's red, so I can use it at Christmas time too.
I have another shutter that is currently in my bathroom, that I am thinking I will bring out for year round use and put the red away after Valentines Day until 4th of July
The one in front with the top I got at a yard sale for $0.50. The other two were made from $1 store finds. Right now our local Dollar Tree has glass candlesticks and glass cylinders. I used E600 glue to fuse the two surfaces together. I left them overnight upside down in my garage to dry. I plan to pick up some valentines candy and fill them up and use some ribbon to decorate.
I bought the glue at Joanne's and used 50% off coupon. The tub will last forever!
