This Girl Needs a Vacation!!!

Looking back at my posts this week and the projects I've worked on around the house, I have declared it..."paint everything in sight blue week"! It's all thanks to an old rusty can of turquoise paint in the garage and a small bottle of craft paint that is my current obsession.



With my trusty bottle of acrylic paint, I transformed an ugly gold finial and a plain nest with eggs into beautiful stand out pieces for spring.


My personal favorite was this "Keep Calm" sign I made with an extra piece of plywood, leftover paint, and some vinyl lettering I cut with my cricut. I WILL be making more of these in the future and listing them in my etsy shop!


Again, a bit of that beautiful craft paint took my cream colored frame from ok......to oH mY!



This frame for my chalkboard started out Parakeet Green, but ended up a turquoise blue, with a bit of the green peeking through for interest. This will go in my girls' room eventually.



And this Southern Living at Home bucket (yard sale $1) got an update with a bit of green and turquoise mixed and a lot of distressing! This too will go in the girls' room one day.....maybe. Hopefully I can pull it all together and make some sort of sense out of the hodgepodge of stuff we have right now!




This next week we will have some visitors here at Imperfectly Beautiful. Friends and family will be filling in for me while the kids and I spend spring break with our main man. We are heading out the door right now to start the 10 hour drive. Please pray for me that we make it there without killing each other! It's been 3months since I saw my sweet hubby and the 10 hour drive is sooooooooo worth it!!! I'll check in with y'all a couple times next week. There will also be a Spring Break giveaway one day, so be sure and stop by. Have a wonderful week....I'll see ya soon!
