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 OSSS, for thinking I’m “witty” enough to be a guest contributor. However, that is one thing I’ve never been accused of, so yay!
Butterfly Button Art ~ Pottery Barn Knock-Off:
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 is what you will need: Buttons, a measuring tape, tweezers, Tacky Glue, paint, paint brush, glitter (optional) and canvas board.
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.
Start playing with the shape and arranging how you want it to look.
Measure canvas to make sure everything is where you want it to be symmetrically.
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…
