Remember how I said before that I love paint chips? I also love paint samples. Lowe's just recently put a bunch on clearance and I grabbed a couple, including Pantone's color of the year for 2013, Emerald.
Isn't that color gorgeous? I want to paint everything emerald now...Adele better guard her toys. Here is the finished project on top of our radiator holding these little straw ball thingies, which I like to think look like bird's nests, which is obviously springy, right?
So maybe you don't have random toy boxes hanging about, but here's my whole point...use what you have! Find objects in your home and make them serve a new purpose. I've seen wonderful projects across the internet made from wood scraps, glass jars, toilet paper rolls, etc. Shop your house and take a chance on a project. What's the worst that can happen? You hate it and you throw away the object that you weren't even using in the first place, and no harm done.
I also wanted to let you all know that you can now subscribe to my blog via email. In the bottom left hand corner where it says, "Follow Me" simply enter your email and then you will get a confirmation email. You won't get any spam, just an email that says when I publish a new post. I hope you all subscribe!
