Decided it was too white for my taste, so I got out my favorite universal umber paint, thinned it with a bit of water, painted it all over the block and then wiped it off leaving only a small amount of color. You can see in this picture below
Still looking a little too plain to me so I kept digging in the scrapbook boxes until I found some fabric that I tore to make a "ribbon"
Added some flowers, a button and a Key.
Voila !!A little shelf sitter that cost me virtually nothing
This cute little gem is making it's way across the country soon by way of a blog swap. Hope it likes it new home!!
I will be linking this to a few parties and fabric fun thursday is probably a bit of a stretch but aI just hate to miss a good party and there is fabric on this thing : )
Linking up to frugal friday over at the shabby nest
