I love owls!!

Good morning!  Hope all you mothers had a wonderful day and were pampered!  I had a nice and relaxing day yesterday....I woke up to a lovely card made by my three year old son with some additional help from my hubby.  Aren't homemade cards the best??  I would much rather a card made by son every year rather than a hallmark card....they just mean more.

Anyways....I recently found this little kids chair at a garage sale....or shall I say phenomenal garage sale where the prices of everything were just AWESOME!!   Here's the before picture of my little chair.


I gave the chair a quick cleaning and proceeded to paint a coat of primer on it.  I then painted two coats of blue paint and then followed up with an owl stencil.  Again, I used my cricut machine to create a stencil out of contact paper.  Seriously....I really love owls right now and seems like a good percentage of other people like them too.  I chose not to distress the chair....I just didn't think it needed it.  Here's an after picture of my chair.



Have a great Monday and enjoy the spring weather....It's supposed to be an awesome week in Michigan!!

  5. That is adorable!! Great idea to use your cricut to make a stencil... I'll have to try that! If you don't mind my asking, did you have to use a special blade?

    1. Hi Steph! Thanks for your kind words! I just used my blade that the cricut came with and just put the settings to what you would use when you are cutting vinyl....hope this helps.
