My amazing principal agreed to let us chalk paint our doors. I used painter's and quilter's tape before painting to make the lines. PS-Quilter's tape was pretty much worthless. I thought it would peel clean, but it didn't. If you try using for a painting project, be careful.
I'd pinned this picture on my Pinterest in hopes of recreating it for a shower. Then I ended up trying for a "bee hive" lantern in my classroom.
I'm definitely not thrilled with the results. I almost didn't post the pic, but I felt like it's dishonest if I don't show you my "flops" too! I'm thinking I needed to layer more tissue paper. Plus, it might have helped if I had started with a yellow paper lantern, so the green didn't show through. Isn't the Martha Stewart picture incredible though?
Remember the "toad stools"? They found a home.
Back to school is a bittersweet time for me, especially this year. There are a lot of things going on with our family right now as well. The summer was a great time for me to get started doing my first interior design project (lots more on that soon) and starting this blog. I hope now that my "real" job has started up, I'll be able to keep up with it all. My plate is full at the moment. The things I want to "take off" I can't. The things I want "more of" will have to wait. Does anyone else ever feel this way?
