My attempt at being crafty.
It is apparent to me that I have a lack of stalkers in the town in which I dwell, because only one person has entered my amazing giveaway…or maybe they all just want to continue with their non-zumba lives and remain unhappy. That must be it. With that said, onto more exciting things happening in my ever entertaining life.
I would first like to say that I am not crafty. By that, I mean I do not have the patience for crafts. If I start a project and it isn’t done in approx. 10 minutes then I am so over it. But I am bound to change my ways and am on a quest to be that “crafty person.” You know, the one that you want to be…making all the things your neighbors envy. I found this very ugly(if you like Dora please excuse that previous comment) toy chest last week at a local thrift store and I decided I was going to make it beautiful.
So I sanded it a little, by hand. Lets be honest, sanding by hand sucks…so it was short lived.
Then I attempted to spray paint it. Two cans later it looked like this. Still pink and Doraed.
Here is what I learned. This was a spendy toy chest project and I think I could have found a new one for less. I am finding that the initial crafting process is expensive but once you already have the supplies it gets cheaper…hopefully, or I quit.
