We'll draw three winners with U.S. Mailing Addresses. BUT because we have so many international players this time, DecoArt has agreed to mail out three nice sample packages to international commenters as well - so make sure to hop and comment!


Now onto my project today. I've altered an old frame I found in a charity shop and created a coffee themed wall art for my living room.


Here is the picture 'before':




And 'after':



I disassembled the nautical insert (and kept it for another project) and painted the wooden backing with Americana Chalkboard Paint. Then I added some stamping and heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder. The stamps I used were: Perfectly Clear Elegant Borders, Coffee Talk and cling Kettle On.  



Then I painted the frame with Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint in Lace and distressed it in place with sanding paper.




My hubby and I are both big coffee addicts and this chalkboard sign sums it all up for us:

Keep Calm
And Put The Kettle On

Keep Calm
And Pour Me Another Cup

Forget Calm
I'm Having Another Cup

Happiness Is a Good Cup Of COFFEE
Shared With a Friend

OK, ready for your trip around the world? Let's get hoppin!

First you have to 'see' your creation before you can make it. I had no idea where you were going with the nautical design, but this is awesome! Glad you are keeping the first parts to create something else, too!!

I like the "after-picture" a lot more than the "before-picture"
