So yesterday when I shared my accidental faux bois painting technique… this is what I was working on. Skeleton Specimen Artwork. This was very easy to do. Grab some Dollar Store Skeletons, paint them and a small piece of plywood with a good quality silver spray paint. (I used Krylon Metallic Silver spray paint) While the silver […]
This post could also be called Even Cheap, Crappy Quality Spray Paint Can Be Beautiful. It technically isn’t faux bois since it’s real wood grain… but I don’t even know how I’d go about trying to create this on purpose. With faux bois being so popular, I was delighted when this happened by total accident. I […]
I love monograms and initials. I love Halloween. I love the Dollar Store. Ergo, I love this project: a monogram made out of silver skeletons. It was pretty easy to create. I grabbed a few of these skeleton garlands from the Dollar Store, took the ropes from around their bony little necks and spray painted […]
They aren’t replanted yet, but today I wanted to show you how I saved a couple of old flower pots. I have a couple of planters that have been around here for quite a while. I like the style of them, and I have repainted them several times over in order to get more life […]
This post may contain Amazon and other affiliate links. So way back in February… I was already thinking about Halloween. I knew when I saw this spider at Target’s Dollar Spot that I needed to buy him, and that I would do something to him in just 8 short months! Yay! A little of Krylon Metallic […]

We have a free standing fire pit that we love to use. However, while sitting out on our patio 24/7 for several years, the paint begins to oxidize and get faded over the years, and rust spots crop up here and there. The solution? High heat spray paint. Loosen any flaking pieces of paint and […]
Do you play bunco? Do you know what it is? (It surprises me how many people don’t know what bunco is…) Basiclly, it’s a group of 12 women who play a dice game together. We eat dinner, drink wine, and occasionally roll dice and keep score to win prizes. (Husbands of bunco playing wives often […]
This is one of my favorite patriotic projects! The saying is SO true, and it’s a great reminder of all that our brave men and women have done for this country. This easy DIY artwork project can be done in just an afternoon.
I love this country. I love quick art projects. I love spray paint. I dropped the ball as far as getting my patriotic decor up last month, so I am hustling to get some up in a day. This “Old Glory” flag sign was created in less than an hour using scrap wood and some […]
