It's one of my favorite times of the month...Project Challenge time!
This month our challenge was to create something with fencing of some sort.
At first I was going to build an herb box out of fence posts and I was pretty excited about it too.
But can I confess something to you? I really suck at building things!
So instead I made the worlds easiest sign!
But just because it was easy doesn't mean that I don't love it madly!
I bought this wonderful old picket at an antique store for under $10 because I just
couldn't NOT get it.
I didn't know what in the world I was going to do with it.
Then I decided to use my French Market stencil on it and it fit so perfectly! Yay!
I was very careful to use a light touch with the paint so the wording would look old.
I just love the rustic goodness at the end of the picket!
And how sweet is the picket!
Oh, don't you just love the character of old things!?!
The chippiness of the white paint is perfection too!
My dining room was starting to look a little formal and it needed to be infused with some of the cottage style that I love so much.
I think bringing in a vintage, chippy piece helps to do that.
My dining room is a work in progress.
The chandelier came with the house.
I have a lovely gray chandelier waiting to be hung, but I am scared to do it!
We are also using a (too small) kitchen table in the room right now because I haven't found the perfect table yet.
I'm pretty picky.
I realize I haven't shared much of my home on the blog this year and it's because I want all the rooms to be "perfect" before I show them.
I'm not one of those bloggers that can put together the perfect room in two minutes flat. ;)
But, I've decided to change my ways and share more "in progress" rooms on my blog.
You probably take your time putting together a room too and can totally relate.
The mirror that is under my new (old) sign I am in the process of painting, but it isn't quite finished yet either.
I'm looking forward to showing you a before and after of that piece in the future.
So that's my little fence project, now you have GOT to check out what the other mega talented ladies in our group have been up too!
