Watchful Eye

Last night Miss Whimsy had her 1st boyfriend over to hang out. C is a sweet boy and I could not have prayed for a better “first” for my daughter. But being a responsible mother, I could not just leave them to their own devices, but at the same time, I didn’t want to embarrass the kids or seem overbearing. So I got busy crafting! I did most of the work in my bedroom, but had to come out to take pictures, to get paint and supplies, etc.  Sneaky, huh?
I am not ready for Valentines decorations, so I put together a New Years blessing. I have been making signs out of cabinet doors. The Habitat for Humanity ReStore carries used doors for $3. You can’t get canvases for that price!

I filled the holes on the front with wood filler and sprayed it with Krylon Satin white.

The molding on the door makes a perfect frame.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the crown and verse. And painted with $1 quart of oops paint. I then rubbed in out with some stain and furniture wax.

In all, this 14X22 inch solid wood, framed sign cost me less than $5 to make.
Now if I can be so frugal throughout 2013….
From our house to yours, Have a blessed New Year!
Love, Whyt
