Vase Makeover



Why did I buy something that I can only use once a year?

Do you ever have thoughts like that?

I just had to have it!  It was the same color of blue as my little dessert containers.


One day I started thinking, I’ve seen everything under the sun with chalkboard paint on it.

But I must say, I took it one step further.  Because that’s what I do.

I remembered that I had bought this big roll of Chalkboard Contact Paper.

So you know what I did?

I cut a rectangle, removed the backing and stuck it over that LOVE word.

It turned out to be a really good day.

Now when I need it to show LOVE, I can just peel it off.


I don’t regret the purchase, I  know it’s still under there 🙂

What are you hiding?
