of my inspiration…
This is a prayer myself and all my siblings said every night before we went to bed, and we have now all passed it on to our own children (15 all together!) So when I saw my inspiration on Pinterest, and had pulled my little 2-year-old niece’s name for Christmas, I really wanted to make this for her.
In our scraps of wood, we didn’t have the right size, so I went with something different. But while working on the project, the outcome just kept getting worse and worse… and this is what I ended up with this…
Totally not what I was going for. So I changed that, into this, for our entertainment centre.
Hubby and told me Rona sells scrap pieces of wood for super cheap, so we packed up the kids and headed over there. We searched and searched for scrap, and couldn’t find any. I was so disappointed, as the regular cost of wood is a little too pricey to do this as a hobby…. finally though, we settled on a piece of wood, waited for the guy who was to help us to get off his dinner break, and he cut the wood for us… suddenly, out of the corner of my eye, I saw it, scrap wood! I asked how much, he said Free! Whoohoo! He even cut it up for us for free! We walked out of there with arm loads of wood, I was pumped!!
When we got home, I sat in front of the computer, and copied my inspiration line for line. This feels like plagiarism to me… but everyone’s doing it…
So with the perfect shaped wood, some pink and white paint, some sanding, a little distressing and some glaze, I had a sweet little Christmas gift for a sweet little niece!
