PRIMITIVE CHECKERBOARD from old Cabinet Door

 PRIMITIVE CHECKERBOARD

This is a solid oak cabinet door that I made into a checkerboard with a saw tooth hanger on the back. 

I painted it in a flat Black and used Delta Stencil paints for the checkerboard.


I chose the Heritage color themes of the ones they sell. And the yellow color is called EGGNOG YELLOW. 
 I use a makeup sponge to stencil with all of these paints. I don't like the stencil brushes and such.

They just look so prim.

 O' how I love these two colors together. They are my absolute favorite. And that's why I do so many items in these colors. I also like red and black for the old time feel as well.

After stenciling on the checkerboard that I bought from ebay, I used a makeup sponge and touched up the edges of the board also. Just to give it a more worn look.



Price: $9.99 SOLD in my Peddlers Mall Booth.
Thank You.

For other things smaller, I can offer them to you online in my ebay shop here.

Happy Crafting ya'll,

PRIMITIVE Snowman Bench



Here's a cute, wintery, snowman craft idea to spruce up an old bench you may have.
I bought the plain old blue bench at a flea market for $2.00
(BELOW.)
  

First, I painted it with a flat black paint with a paintbrush, not spray paint.
You want it to last and hold up to wear and tear marks.
I redone in the "Faith-Family-Friends" theme. 
Since it's winter, I even added a little prim snowman to the front.

I painted it black and added some stenciled wording using Delta stencil paint.
The Delta stencil paint and primitive stencils can be found on eBay.


Then free handed a primitive looking snowman on the front.




I think it makes it look so much better. 
And will look great sitting in someones "Prim" style home.
I just love it.

Here's some more photos of it finished:






PRICE: $9.99 SOLD in my Booth #555
