Well it’s not really tool time, as this DIY is more of a paint project, rather it’s time for my favorite blog hop challenge- #swapitlikeitshot.
Ciburbanity where 40+ bloggers shop, send, and swap secret thrift finds and then give them a good ‘ol fashion makeover. This is the fourth edition and my second round (check here for my post last round).
You’re here on Day 2, so be sure to also check out yesterday’s transformations (at the bottom of the post) and stop back for makeovers throughout the week and #swapitlikeitshot on Instagram!
If you’re stopping by from I Am A Home Maker (or anywhere else!), howdy! If you haven’t checked out what Jillian made, get over there already!
Now let's check out the humongous set of goodies Jillian sent me:
This time, the wooden fruit really screamed my name. I’m sure that the rest of the items will find their way to my craft boxes for future projects and that cute little Asian dish will be put to good use in my kitchen. The little chalkboard sign will definitely make it to one of my mini-finger-food dinner parties.
I've been infatuated with this pin, which uses wooden Easter eggs, since laying eyes on it last April. They’re black and white and have fun patterns. Perfect inspiration.
And this is what I came up with:
In all honesty, I’m not entirely sure this project is worthy of a tutorial. It basically went as such:
Step 1 Paint
Step 2 Decorate with sharpies and vinyl (the square apple)
Step 3 Let dry
Step 4 Seal (I used a couple layers of modpodge)
Step 5 Toss them in a thrifted wooden bowl (I told ya the set would come in handy!)
Easy peasy. Except all those little squares. They were kind of painful. Thank goodness for tweezers and Spotify.
My original thought was to make the grapes either polka dots or a bullseye style, but decided to leave them au naturel to give a slight nod to the wood spots on two fruit tops.
I’m pumped to see what Bee from Wind Gate Lane concocted with the funky (think: mini-doors, angel box, cork board + more) things I sent. You can check out her creations here, I know you’ll adore it! Here's a peek:
