My game-board hallway still has plenty of room, but I knew there was one particular place that needed a game-board. So, I thought about what I could do to fill in that particular space and went to the garage to see what I could come up with. I created something simple with what I had, but knew I wanted something that would “pop” when you looked down the hallway. I decided to go with Antique Gold paint over black and I was real pleased with how it turned out. I painted my board all black and then once that was dry, I used my painters tape to make a frame around the edge of my board. Like I said… I wanted something different. I then painted my board the Antique Gold. Here is what it looked like after I completed that step. Don’t you just love my table cloth? Yep, I use one during meals and during crafting and that way I protect my farm table from any damage that might happen during meal time or crafting time. Let’s take a look at that game-board.
So, once that step was done, I was ready to get started. I measured to find the middle of the board and went from there. Here is what I decided to go with.
Now that it is done, it is now time to sand it and stain it. Let’s get it finished and up on the wall – shall we? Here it is after the sanding and staining was complete.
So, what do you all think? I still have some room above the door and above that game board all the way at the end of the hallway plus I am still working on the other side as well. So, more pics will be coming soon.
Oh, in regards to my 1st attempt at stitching….. it turned out pretty decent, but I still have alot of practice and improvement ahead of me. This towel will be mine because I wouldn’t dare send it out to anyone, but that is ok, I will tuck into a basket or something and no one will see it unless they get right up on it (lol). I wanted something I could use around Christmas so I decided to stitch “Peace” on my coffee/tea stained flour sack towel. What do you all think? I didn’t go by any pattern….. I just started stitching away. Good thing I will get some direction from my Mom this weekend (hahaha). Well, here it is ~ be nice ladies!
Definitely doesn’t look as good as the little towel that my dear friend Sherrie sent me, but I was trying. I guess I need to keep trying – huh?
Today I leave you with this beauty!! I am pretty sure that this is my obedient plant that I planted years ago and has never come up until this past week. It amazes me, but this beauty popped out of the ground and I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what it was because it never grew and I thought I had killed it. Years later…… here it is. At least I think it is my obedient plant!?! With the cold, warm, cold warm temps here in Ohio…..no wonder my flowers get confused!
Hope you all have a blessed day!
Until Next Time……..
