They’re at it again! The ladies at It all started with paint, the space between, Thistlewood Farm, The Cottage Market and Eclectically Vintage have set up another challenge! Well, technically it’s a series of challenges to last us until 2013! Each challenge has a different theme and I’m so excited!
I’ll hopefully by linking up to all of them, starting with It’s a Cinch! I came up with a really easy project, that is going to be super helpful for my future decorating needs! It was inspired by this post on Pinterest (originally from here):
Basically, you dip paint sticks (I used craft sticks) into the paint that you used to paint rooms in your house. So far I have used 4 colors in our house, so I only needed to dip 4 sticks. I tried to wipe off drips as best I could so they wouldn’t be apparent when the paint dried. I let the sticks dry for several days, but that’s just because I got really distracted.
When my sticks were good and dry, Jesse took them out to the garage and drilled a small hole into the ends of each stick. For now I just threaded some string through the holes and tied the sticks to a key ring, but I’m planning to attach them to a lanyard along with some fabric samples from each room. I’m hoping having this all together will help me when I go shopping or to yard sales, so I know what will look good in each room and what wont. This super easy and very useful project was A Cinch!
