I'm trying to change how I prepare for the annual Christmas Arts & Crafts Show that I participate in. Rushing around like a crazy person, getting little sleep, and being frustrated at my lack of production needs to be a thing of the past! To that end, I spent Saturday and Sunday evenings trying to make a dent in my "things to make" list. I recently shared some "supplies" in this blog post. I spent some time painting a few of them...plus some other pieces I didn't share.
I used Martha Stewart's Satin craft paint for the first time. I LOVE it!
It goes on so smooth and the coverage is awesome!!
Only problem now is talking myself out of keeping some of the pieces!!
I'm especially fond of the "cracker tray"...it looked just like THIS ONE when I started.
I also painted this larger, handled tray. A perfect display for your pearls!
What!? You don't have any pearls! Well, honestly, if I was planning on keeping this piece I would fill it with eggs right now, then some little pots of flowers, maybe apples in Autumn, and definitely some vintage ornaments when Christmas came around. I'd have to pick a nice wintry display too...but I really don't want to think about Winter right now!
Not only did I do some painting....I did some gluing too!!
