Hello, lovelies! I am terribly sorry for my absence this month, but I have been on Spring Break for the past two weeks. So, I have been super busy working. I was able to get a job for the spring and summer at a beautiful greenhouse/garden shop in my hometown. But, I did not take pictures of it. Shame on me!
I do have a quick project to share with all of you though. I mentioned this project in one of my previous posts from this month: March Craft Projects. What I originally intended to do was to recreate the Refurbished Key Portrait Tutorial from Amy's blog Mod Podge Rocks:
However, I have yet to find a pretty frame that I am happy with. So, for now I have just given my rot iron bird key a shabby chic makeover. Here is a close up of the the finished product:
Here is a shot of my shabby chic bulletin board and my key:
I decided to hang this key above my shabby chic inspired bulletin board that I made last year. I hope you like it! I used Apple Barrel Ivory White Gloss Paint that I purchased for under $2 at Wal-Mart. I used a dry brush technique to give the key a shabby chic feel.
I absolutely can't wait to display this in my apartment one day. I hope you are all doing well!! Leave me a comment below and tell me what craft projects you are working on this month.
