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!
stories of DIY, motherhood, cooking and life in general
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!
Do you have a super easy project that you want to get accomplished? Go do it! And join me at the linky party at one of these blogs next week so we can share our cinches!
