do you all have one of these? bless the people who made it, but im done with it. ive had it for 6 years.
here is the finished product!!! ill also give some pics and a tutorial of sorts of how i did it.
would you ever guess what was hiding under the burlap? isnt she a peach? im LOVING the finished product. although i said a few cuss words, stomped my feet and glared at the back of my hubbys head while working on this.....im glad i did it and i did it all by my selves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
so first step was i covered the inside quilt area with parchment paper and used stick pins. worked perfectly.
here is the after spray paint. and im talking like 3-17 coats. (jk...only 4)
i pondered sanding / distressing it some....but got lazy. its hot and humid today. who wants to hang in the garage all day. NOT ME.
i cut the burlap piece to fit, then starting hot gluing from the middle down.
tahdah! wait.....is she done? HECK NO! she needs some CHICKEN WIRE!
welllll, they had a big roll of waste in their dumpsters one day.....so at 5am my sister trekked down there and STOLE it for me! wait, is it stealing when its being chucked? um NO!
when using the chicken wire, heavy duty gloves come in handy. unless you want to risk tetanus. just saying....
we also dug out our heavy duty power stapler. (didnt even know we had it). worked fabulous. (santa, id like power tools for xmas please)
i made a little burlapy flower for the top, hot glued a button in the middle and VOILA---
it wont be staying outside. i just had to get some decent lighting :)
took me 2 days to redo. took me 10minutes to clutter up.
