Hello Monday! I’ve Got The Monday Blues. And I would love to share them you you. I think you will have the Monday Blues, too after seeing these beauties.
This creative blue is from my friend Gracie at Kitchen Table Art.
Gracie has a tiny kitchen. So, she and her hubby made their own pantry with a bookshelf and a homemade screen door.
I know-how awesome is that? So creative and a perfect fit for their kitchen. Check out the blog for more details…Thanks for sharing my love of blue Gracie.
As for my fave blue around our home this week…
I would have to choose something from here:
The blue basket is cute..but…
I did a makeover with the $3.00 shelf!!
Yep, she is now a pretty blue in our office!!
I started off by using a white primer on her. No sanding, just primer.
Then I added paint from an old paint can called Turquoise Mist by Olympic.
I seriously have had this can of paint for over 2 years and have used in several places in our home. I loved how it is thick and glumpy! Just right for what I need.
Love those chunks of blue paint, don’t you? With the Green (Hint of Olive by Ace Hardware), I filled my paint brush with paint and let it drip on the shelf. Love me some imperfection.
I really like the added texture with the blue and green chunky paint…
Once she was dry, I sanded her edges for some aging. It was a treat to use my Cardboard Chalkboard and my floating frames on the shelf. I made the blue tulle wreath for our son’s wedding open house. The book page flowers add more texture. And for the final touch-a few strands of great-grandma’s lace.
Love love love my $3 thrifted “new” shelf. I hope you enjoy the Monday Blues as much as I do!! I share my blues every Monday!! So come back again!!
Make it a Blue Monday!!
