I'm feeling refreshed after a great weekend in the mountains. Sad to say I totally missed my first week of the 6 Week Pinterest Challenge, so here I am starting late. You can check out my ideas here.
I decided to start on my chevron mailbox first. An easy project and since I'm on holidays this week for spring break with my minions, my oldest could help.
I set my oldest to paint the base coat. I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, close to Paris Grey. I'm sure I tinted this can a bit darker.
This was her first coat, I think I may have to touch up a few spots. Quicker to touch up, then do my self. So no complaints to her.
I wish I would have taken a picture with my graph, but you can check out this post by Mommy is Coo Coo. I did the same thing. Drew a graph and connect the lines to make stripes. Super easy. After I painted the white on (by hand with a small brush), I touch up the grey over any remaining pencil marks. Easy peasy.
Here is my before and after.
I'm thinking our house numbers on the front, or a monogram M. Decisions?
Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your day.
