I Saw…I Pinned…I Made…

How did we ever live before Pinterest??  I waste many an hour on Pinterest…but I find the greatest things. 

We have a freezer down in  our basement that was pretty funky looking…but for $25 at an estate sale it’s not going to be a diamond…

It’s down in my workspace and I definitely didn’t want to look at it like that.  I planned on painting it from day one…I even considered this look…

 

Isn’t that fun?!?  But really, I’m don’t know how to wallpaper and I’m not going to teach myself…so back to paint…

I decided to use the same pink that I used on my little bench…I was trying to do thins on the cheap…

I have quite a stock of food in this freezer and the hubby keeps telling me I need to write down what is inside…

So I’m going to… right on the door!!  I made me some chalkboard paint!!  I think I’m going to do this to my pantry door so I can write down what I need to buy at the store…

  I found the recipe on Pinterest via Martha Stewart.  It is SO easy.

The downside…

grout

You only use 2 T. per 1 c paint…I could paint my whole house AND  10 friends with the 10lb. bag I had to buy!!

A couple pointers if you attempt this…1.  use a roller, brushing it on is kind of hard and it doesn’t spread as easily.  2.  don’t buy mosaic tile grout, it’s wet…I found my UNSANDED grout at Lowe’s, $11 & change…

Now go paint something…the color possibilities are endless!!
