Hello friends, Jennifer here today to share a fun, up-cycled project for Earth Week!
We recently had some work done on our house and had some leftover pieces of board and paint which I just couldn’t let go to waste! I cut a piece of the board to measure 5×7 and then painted it the robin’s egg blue. Once that was dry, I added a layer of white paint on top, let dry, and then sanded it to rough up the edges and let the blue show through. I think I made the layers a bit too thick because I had to put in some major elbow grease to get that blue to show through! Once sanded, I distressed the board with a bit of dye ink.
I am planning to use this as a photo frame but love that it can be used for other things as well, a frame, the base of a collage, you could add some chalk paint for a little sign, or keep it as an art piece, as-is.
Thanks so much for visiting today!
