Red Spray Paint & Chalkboard Labels...........

are two little things that are making me really happy right now.

red spray painted stool

I used Krylon's primer plus paint brand of spray paint in banner red on this stool.  If you're new here you may not already know that my favorite color is red.  Here's a before picture or really more like an in progress picture.


I've had this stool for a little while and I just felt like it needed a new outfit.  We all need a new outfit sometimes and what's better than spray paint?

Chalkboard labels might be a close second.  I'm obsessed with the Martha Stewart line of office supplies at Staples.  Labels make me happy; chalkboard labels make me giddy!

Crazy town - but true.  We're all different; that's what makes the world go 'round.

So, what's making you happy right now?

Today is the last day of the Haven Conference!  I'm so excited to tell you all about what a great time I've had meeting some of my favorite people in all of blogland!    Have a great weekend!

  2. Everything looks better in red and I have a confession - I am a chalk board addict (the first step is admitting the problem)!

    Enjoy Haven (I've heard great things from Flat Kelly)!
