I found this box at Habitat Restore for $4.00. I have no idea what made me open it up to see what was inside. I’ve never played Backgammon before but for some reason my curiosity got the best of me.
When I opened it, I could not believe all those beautiful little pieces of wood!!!! (and bugs)!
Remember these!!?!? Four of these cowboy pictures hung in my son’s room before he discovered football and Xbox.
Dixie May was actually with me when I bought the Backgammon game. Yes I bought the game some time ago and yes I got in trouble for taking her into Habitat, but not as much trouble as when I took her into the grocery store. Apparently that is a big no no.
Paint and some little wood pieces from the game.
I was totally in a girly mood……
but also had to go with my favorites!
I cut a few pieces of the wood so it would fit in the freshly painted cowboy frames, then I hot glued all the pieces down.
I found these at Habitat as well! Three sets of letter stencils for 50 cents!
Luckily my friend and boss lady over at Sanctuary of Davidson, Krissy just showed me how to use these stencils and make the letters look pretty. When you use these stencils the letters have gaps in them. See that O up there?!?!? All you have to do is just fill that in with paint!!! Duhhhhhhh how did I not know that!?!?
The left over scrapes from the wood pieces I cut became a separate project. Maybe a little problem with throwing anything away?!?!! You think?
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! If you need some Love Art I might just know where you can find some!!!! Please visit my Etsy shop or my little room at Sanctuary of Davidson to get some love! Yes shameful plug.
Happy Tuesday!!! What are you going to do today to make it awesome!?!? I’m getting my haircut! Yeehaw!
