Shop The House Sunday!



Happy weekend everyone and welcome to Shop The House Sunday!

Here is the project I just completed!


A chalkboard made out of a cabinet door!

I guess this should really be a combination "Trash Pick" and "Shop the House"!  Remember these beauties, saved from Mr. Garbage Dude a few weeks ago?


And....I still have a whole door left over because I found 2! 

I used a combination of Turquoise & Blue Latex paints from Pierce's room re-do
{the color is really much prettier "live".  It looks light in the picture}



I was going to buy a faceted crystal knob, but didn't feel like getting off my butt to go to the Depot, so...



I painted the gold knob with white spray paint and then painted the recessed inner the turquoise color.  I had a bunch of Swarovski crystals from my chandy makeover, so I tied one on with some white grosgrain ribbon.

Then, Mr. FYN had the brilliant idea of adding little white cup hooks to the bottom and using to hang keys. 
{Occasionally, Mr. FYN will scare and delight me all at the same time by being interested in my decorating projects!}
So, I will be adding hooks and reposting the update.  This piece will hang in the entryway from our garage.

 

Okay, now it's your turn! 

"Shop" your house (in your pajamas if you wanna!) and create something for free!

Projects can be ANYTHING,  like repurposing an item, moving something to a different room for a new look, a recycled project, painting projects, organizing projects, tablescapes, rearranging furniture...the sky's the limit.

THE ONLY RULE?  

YOUR PROJECT MUST USE ITEMS YOU ALREADY OWN. 
We're sharing projects that cost NO MONEY.  

Can't wait to see everyone's ideas for FREE decorating!
Link up and party!  
1.  Use the link for your POST, not the link for your blog.
2.  Link back to this party, with the button on the right side or a text link.

Linky will be up through Monday morning, to give everyone time to shop, create, show and tell!

I'm also linking this project up to:

Funky Junk's Saturday Nite Special

Oh I can't wait to join! I love the door idea! I've seen people do lots of things with chalkboard paint, but I like the idea of putting it on a door and then putting hooks on it to place near the entry. Very cool!

Hi Kendall - Thanks for stopping over my place and becoming a new follower! I love this idea, and I already have some chalkboard paint I bought a couple months ago that I've been waiting for just the right thing to use it on. You've just helped open my mind to new possibilities! That's why I'm addicted to blogs I guess. I will be following you for sure! Thanks! ~Lili

Hi Kendall - just wanted to say a big "thank you" for the books from your giveaway :) They're fabulous!

The chalkboard is great - I wish I had some doors stashed away somewhere I could do this with.
