Kinda Crafty

Here is something you can do with those old peeling mouldings and shelves. This hangs over my bed. It is pink painted over green. Most of these primitives have been painted many times. I scratched out the United States with OK in the middle. Then, the African continent with Saudi Arabia and India and lastly, South America. Maybe someday, Australia.


  1. I love the sort of reverse-stenciling you have done...I have so many painted things like this that I'm now looking at with a new eye to possibility. Love it.

  2. I just wanted to stop on by and you have such a beautiful painting sitting above. I like how you are doing the continents in there. Hope you will show Australia too.

    Thanks for the visit to my site. I always appreciate any visits and comments.

    God bless.

  3. Cool shelf! But I really love your broken plate flower bed border! WHat a great way to add the color blue to your garden since there aren't very many blue flowers. Oh and I'm coveting your awesome fence! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  4. What a neat idea !
    You come up with some of the most unique craft ideas, I'm not nearly that talented :)
    I need to show this one to my daughter, it's something she has talked about doing.

  5. Love what you did with the shelf! You are the most creative person ever. Happy Easter, my friend.


Someone said comments are the heartbeat of blogs. I love to read your comments and learn so much from every one of you. Thanks for taking the time to talk to me.
