Hi everyone! I'm super excited to be guest blogging here at the Blissful Bucket List! I am fairly new in the blogging world and this is my first "guest post". I am one part of the "Shabby Gals", which consists of my mom and sisters. We have so much fun working together and attempting to make something out of nothing!! We love to scour flea markets, garage sales, and thrift stores to find one of a kind "treasures." We are even known to stop and pick up roadside finds!!
I wanted to share with you two projects that consist of numbers. I just love numbers right now and try to incorporate them into my decor in different places. I found these three canisters at a garage sale for a couple of bucks. I fell in love with the size of them and the fact that they had teaspoons on the side. I quickly scooped them up and brought them home. Here is a before picture of them.
I used my cricut machine to create three stencils out of contact paper. I absolutely love my cricut machine....Santa brought it for me last Christmas:)! I used a black acrylic paint that is specifically used to paint on glass and carefully dabbed the paint on. Always dab....never rub when you are stenciling. I removed the contact paper as soon as I finished with the paint because it dries quickly. There were a few runs, however, this paint seems a bit more chunky so if you use a toothpick you can clean the lines up very easily. Here they are after their "make-over"!
Onto the second "number" project. I found these little glasses at a garage sale as well. I think they were used as small canning jars, however I use them for little juice cups. Here they are before I prettied them up...
I used the same technique as I described above. Here they are now after their "make-over".
I hope you enjoyed these two projects and that you will come and visit us at www.shabbygals.blogspot.com for more project ideas and make-overs.
Thank you Sarah for having me!! I had fun sharing!!! Take care!!
