Diy, thrifty home decor decorating ideas on a budget. Painting furniture, stenciling projects. Turning trash to treasure.

Friday, February 4, 2011


WOW, you are an easy bunch to please I tell ya!
Whewww...thank GOD, because, you know I stink at a I have to come up with something good once in awhile.
I stink at tutorials, and that I know, and will work on. If I am trying to be a good blogger and role model, I must self improve.
You see my mind gets set and the body starts the time I think of taking pictures, it's over, done, ready to be blogged about!
That's just the way it goes.
But if I want to self improve, I will show you the way:)
So this is all I did with this project...Now I did tell you I first lightly rolled the paper with a color of my choice..

Note, the paper that I used was actually thick, almost like a scrap book texture. It was sold at hobby lobby, with all the papers, construction, etc.
HOWEVER, I had a light bulb moment after I did it on paper...what I could have done, and yes burlap would have worked. But even better, are the painters tarps...
They are thick and lined...I have a project planned, if all goes well I will show you that too...even if it does not go well, I will show you that too.
 These are the colors I used for the frame.  The frame I purchased at Hobby lobby for half off.
I painted the interior the metallic green, and the outer edge red. Lightly sanded so it looked distressed.
And have no fear if you have never stenciled, they do have some easy to follow instructions. Which by the way, I stink at instructions, never read em!
If you did not see this project the first time it is

Now I have to run, I have some serious chili I must start soon. Going to a chili superbowl party on Sunday.  What about you girls, whatcha doin?

Ummm, I love Chili. I hate instructions too. Instructions came with my stencil project, but I didn't read them. Until I tried it my way and it looked terrible and I got a wet rang and scrubbed all wet paint off the wall - then I read the instructions and started all over! Ok, fine I admit-I did it my way 2 or 3 times before givig up and reading instructions!
I love this stencil project, it looks so great I want to try it! Enjoy your super bowl party!

I love that and I'll have to get a drop cloth next time at Lowes, I like to try it.
We are having a Super Bowl party here and I'll be making my famous peperoni dip, men love it!

We woke to snow here so chili was what we had for lunch. Perfect winter meal. Enjoy! ~ Sarah

Great idea with the dropcloth next time! Sunday we'll be spending all day in our BFF's man cave. Which is pretty much where we've spent every Sunday since they finished it. I probably ought to write a post about it sometime. Enjoy your Super Bowl party and don't forget to post your chili recipe. I love trying out new variations.

The stencil is great, Debbie! Not sure what we're doing on Sunday yet. My goal is to get to tomorrow afternoon- I will be finished painting the trim & wainscoting in the dining room! Been doin' this all week! Chili sounds great, though! I saw this other cheesy meat dip on a blog this morning,and it looked yummy, too!

I am definitely going to try to stencil. I guess I'm still a little confused tho. Did you buy the stencil or make it?

I think we are hanging at home and Tom will watch the game. I will swing in for all the commercials! Chili sounds good! I think I will make a pot of that too! We have an oyster roast tomorrow, but if it doesn't quit raining, it will be on Sunday! I love me some oysters!!!

I had to go back a few posts to see what I missed! This is a cute stencil and you did a great job but girlfriend I love the job you did on the frame! Wowzer! That is cute! I really love the two toned look of that. Sorry, I've been posting and running quite a bit lately, lot's going on in our world over the last few days! I feel like I can only grab little bits of time on the blogs. As for super bowl Sunday, I don't have a clue where will be yet but Chili sounds like a winner to me! YUM!

Hello Debbie...Right now, I'm in the living room, sitting on a pink velvet love seat. A fire is crackling inside the pink fireplace. It's f-f-f-f-freeeeezing outside but in here it's warm and cozy. Looking forward to sleeping in a bit in the morning. Take care. Susan

I love this project and I'm glad you gave us some instructions. I don't always follow direction but I do try to get the main idea.

Chili sounds perfect tonight!

HI Debbie Dear! I think you did great on your tutorial. I love to stencil and have been doing it probably longer than you're of age! :) Now I love me some chili. I always have to have a half of a peanut butter sandwich with my chili. It's an elementary school thingy! :)
be a sweetie,

Debbie, this is really cute. You rock! I must apologize to you. I put your button up on my sidebar, but I hadn't gone in & set up Follow until just a couple of minutes ago. I've noticed how you always manage comments on so many blogs. How do you do that? I'm having a tough time keeping up. Do you have a secret to managing all the goodness of blogland? Help me, Obi-Wan, you're my only hope.
