I have been trying to decorate this apartment of mine and Shane’s, and while I’m trying to figure out themes and colors, the one thing I know I want is a blue/white kitchen. So, since it’s the only room I’m POSITIVE of how I want it to turn out, I started looking for DIY ideas.
Whew!! I was stalking Pinterest and was led to this lovely lady’s blog, where I found a craft I just had to try! And it worked perfectly with the blue/white theme I wanted!
A paintchip picture! I’ll let the lovely Carmie tell you guys how the paint chip part is done, just click here! I’ll show you how I did the frame, since that was all MOI!
I started with a wooden 5x7 frame bought from the Dollar Store, and some white acrylic paint.
Pretty simple stuff here, painted the frame white! Two coats later I painted an acrylic gloss on top of the white, since I wanted a shiny look, not a matte look.
Finally, I used some blue paper flowers and white glitter brads to make some flowers to add to the corner just for a splash of color on the simple frame.
I am so in love with this! I think it looks sweet and beachy and romantic.
