Chalkboard Banner

Chalkboard Pennant Banner

 So easy and so fun.


Here s the supplies you'll need:

Chalkboard Spray Paint ($2.50 clearance at Michaels)
12 Chipboard Pennants (from $1.50 for 4 from StudioCee)
I sprayed them all down with two coats
Let them dry for a day.

Then using Sisal Twine, I weaved in & out through the pennants, wrote on them, and hung them!
Super easy like i said and really fun.. Be creative with it and you could really use this for all type of holidays,events, and birthday parties!

Here is our Family Picture Wall! My friend helped me piece this together when we first moved into our house.

I couldn't find a before picture but just picture this wall with some brown frames, black frames and white frames! 
I was sick of this look and decided to try something different one day! after several attempts of actually painting them by hand i finally decided to use spray paint!

I bought 1 can of Krylon and sprayed them! I love the end results and i love them all the same color! Now i just need to actually updated our pictures!  

If you have a project you spray painted.. Please send it in to us at

3 steps

This was one project i did over the weekend and i sprayed the whole thing with just 2 cans of Krylon spray paint! 
I know i still am shocked that i only went through 2! I bough 4 thinking i was going to need it!

Before this dresser was HOT PINK! 

Here s the steps i did!!!

1. Sanded the whole thing. I tried to get as much of the hot pink color off as i could.

2. I used Kilz prime spray paint from krylon!  I sprayed that all over!

3. Once the primer dried i was ready to go on spray painting!  I used Kryon white Glossy finish!

3 very easy steps anyone can do! I am very happy with the way it turned out and so is my daughter

Okay i cant tell you enough how much i love this brand! I use spray paint on just about everything!! Headboards,picture frames, desk,dressers,benchs and even our kids picnic table outside!

I have tried other brands of spray paint. But they always come our very streaky to me!I have never had a problem when using Krylon! Its the only one i will use now!

I can go on and on about this and how much i love it. But i wont. We will let you see for yourself!

Stay tuned for things we have done using  "paint in a can"

Twin Headboard

I found this Twin Headboard at goodwill a couple months ago. I was going to use it for my daughters room but than ended up wanting something a little different instead.

It was just a plain wood color when i first got it. I sanded it down than painted it. I distress it just very lightly around the edges. I was really happy with the end result!
