I did it y’all. I finished <i>SOMETHING</i> that I pinned. Finally.
If you’ve been here a while you might have noticed a change in me lately. Throwing more color into the house. Adding more handmade items. These times, they’re a changin’ aren’t they? Anyway, I wanted to make something FUN something BIG and something that screamed SUMMER.
Just in time to finally make something from pinterest, instead of just pinning.. I’d try actually finishing a project.
Nothing says “Summer is all up in your face” like a giant dead lobster right? I think so. I hung that sucker right up in our dining room where he belongs. Perched on the wall where you can clearly see our favorite Summer photos tacked up to the fridge & our out of date Jones Design Company Calender. Am I the only one who is so bad about changing the calender? Seriously once I realize it’s time to change, the month is half over.
I just used a cheap piece of MDF from Home depot and went to town. I think it should probably be aged a bit more with some stain and I thought about using a crackle method on it but seriously the fact that it’s this finished is a big accomplishment in my book.
It wasn’t really rocket science, or anything that deserves a full tutorial. I just eye-balled it with a pencil and then went to town with plain jane acrylic paint. It’s far from perfect, and that’s okay. Not much is in this house. Imperfections are welcomed!
