JuST SoMEThing I WhiPPEd uP!

I created this cute chalkboard tray for my kitchen last week using this white tray I found at Michaels. I roughed up the edges a tad because I like that slightly worn look!

I gave it 3 good coats of chalkboard paint...you can buy it anywhere...Michaels, Joanns, Home Depot.

I think it turned out cute!!

By now we've all heard of Pinterest and have most likely wasted spent a good amount of time on it.

When I came across this adorable key hook made from childrens blocks on Pinterest I knew I had to make one for our new house. This idea came from

Here is my take on it...

I started with a piece of scrap wood that I painted black and distressed on the edges.

Next I found me some blocks which were pretty easy to find since they are usually strewn all over my livingroom carpet...btw these little devils hurt if stepped on.

In the bottom of each block I screwed a ceiling hook.

 I painted my blocks with Rustoleums Heirloom white spray paint. I didn't want my hooks white so I covered them with tape.

To hold my picture I used these little do dads I purchased from Michaels. They are actually brads and are found in the scrapbooking section. I nailed four of them onto my board.

I used Gorilla Glue to affix my blocks onto my board. Those blocks are never going anywhere..

I used two saw tooth hangers on the back to hang my board, one on each side so the weight of my keys doesn't tip it to one side.

Crafty Chic Mommy is Back

Hello my cherished readers...I'm sorry my blog has been so neglected for way too long. I've been spending a lot of time getting to know this little dude.

Two days after we had our second born we moved into our new house so lets just say it has been a whirlwind around these parts. I have managed to sneak in a few craft projects in which I'll be posting very soon....

I'm happy to be back...
