My name is Stephanie,
but you can call me Steph. ’cause we’re tight like that, I can already tell!
I am married to the most wonderful man in the world…and sorry ladies, I sleep with one eye open so don’t even think about it. And I have two beautiful children that light up my life!
I’ve known Jessica since she and her family entered into my childhood on Faurot Drive back in 1991.Thank you Jessica, for thinking I’m “witty” enough to be a guest contributor. However, that is one thing I’ve never been accused of so yay!
So here it is:
We all know money doesn’t grow on trees…esp these days. Right? So, in my quest to pursue all things awesomely cute, I discovered a piece of art from Pottery Barn that made me just tingly all over. Okay, you caught me…pretty much everything from that devil of a place makes me turn green…BAD!
So, since I didn’t want to fork out $216.50, I forked out $13.50. yay!
Here are some optional touches you may add:
Step 1: Choose your buttons and colors. I color-coordinated my buttons but you don’t need to! I’ve seen it done both ways and the product is cute either way.
Step 2: Paint Canvas (if you choose to do so)
I chose my base color, then chose a 2nd color super close to the base shade to give it just a subtle faux finish.
Step 3: Once paint is completely dry, spread your buttons out on canvas.
(sorry ’bout lame pics…having trouble figuring out the color issues on my camera)
I started with the right side, working top to bottom, so I could then just mirror what I had done when I got to the left side.
Step 4: Begin Gluing.
I used Tacky glue. My friend used Elmer’s school glue…I just don’t know the life span of the school glue and I thought the tacky glue would last longer.
Don’t worry about a little extra glue seeping out from the sides or through the center holes… here’s what before and after looks like justsoyano.
Add any extra touches you want to make it your fabulous sparkly goodness of art!
This is where I added dabs of glitter glue on antenna buttons.
