Finished Projects

A bit ago I found an idea for making plates into chalk boards. Here is one place I saw it, and here is the one that I chose to copy! I wanted to buy chalk board paint until I saw that it costs more than I wanted to spend. Some searching in my basement led me to discover that I already own some! I picked up 4 red plates at Goodwill (originally Target brand but I got them for 50 cents each) and got to work.

When I removed the tape, I saw some paint had bled underneath, plus I didn’t really get the tape on in a perfect circle, so I did some surgery with a small screwdriver.
Yesterday I found a plate display rack and here is the final result:

I wrote the typical Love Laugh Live (although I think it’s supposed to be Live Laugh Love) but I’m open to ideas for other 3 word sayings I can use!
Next up, I got to work on these wooden hamsas that I bought in Israel something like 8 years ago!

I thought the turquoise bling added to the look I was going for!
I had also bought this red leather ribbon at the same time in Israel, so I glued it around the outside, leaving a loop for the nail:

I think they fit in nicely on my entry hall display!
