Going through the boxes I found these. I remember buying them about 6 years ago for $5.00 and thinking..."maybe I will make my husband a poker room one day." Never happened. Never Will happen. Not sure what I was thinking!
I pulled then out of the "yard sale box" and decided to keep them. This time I determined to do something with them.
Watch the magic in process...
I printed out an "F" taped it to freezer paper and cut carefully out my letter.
I decided to give it lots of texture and painted the "F" on to Drop Cloth material. Yes, I love this stuff. I was hoping others shared the same love and would join me on Friday to show me their projects, but apparently I am the only one who know how cool this stuff is, (or maybe next time I will advertise a little but more.) Kimm from Reinvented knows how cool this stuff is! She makes something with drop cloth all the time!!
Here is the F in the process of being painted. Tip: Freezer paper can be reused 3-4 times. However on highly textured material it can only be reused 2 times max.
Then I glued the material on over the ugly King of Hearts! Then for added texture I added Jute to the trim.
The matching pair. WOW, big improvement! I can't wait to put these somewhere...now I need to find some books!
Today I am participating in Kimm's Trash to Treasure Tuesday!
