FAUX BRICK & A PASTA STRAINER TO BRIGHTEN UP A WINDOW I SPEND ALLOT OF TIME AT
Hi there, so glad you could stop on in today so I can share my new look of a kitchen window. Here it has black paint that surrounds the window and also a vintage mirror frame that just happen to fit nicely for interest. But bye bye boring window........
You know how it is when you have to spend a good amount of time washing dishes you need alittle something nice to look at.
Seeing that the wall was black I used the same method as the dining room backsplash, a sponge with the keywest greenish color , white and just stamped the sponge once it was dry I gave it a wash of white.
I had an old pasta strainer so I thought I would hang it over the exsisting globe light.
Aut oh !! you can see the pots on the stove.....chicken parmesan tonight with a side of pasta and salad. I bought these sconces at the thrift store they just seem to fit here well.
I just love a decorated window... a simple white eyelet valance for now. Can't wait to decorate the window for Christmas. If you check back on some earlier posts this window has seen it all!
I sure do love brick these days , when I am watching tv I am sure to notice all the brick.
Who knew a pasta strainer would throw off such a beautiful hint of light?
Don't like your window? give it a bit of personality!

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
Little miss smarty pants which is my oldest daughter decided to show off with he…
