Have you ever done a project that was so easy it was almost embarrassing? Like, can this really even be called a project? And, really, should I even write a post about this ‘project’ or will I just look like a bit of an idiot when everyone reads the post and has the same reaction? “Duh, Karah!”
Well, lucky for me, we had so much fun with the It’s a Cinch projects, and it seemed that all of you are also big fans of the super simple, almost-can’t-call-it-a-project projects, that we’ve decided to dedicate one day a month to those easy peasy ideas! Yippee! (Said in a kind of sarcastic, rolling your eyes, even though you know it’s a great idea kinda way.)
So, I now have the perfect excuse to post about how I took one of the window panels in the dumpster dive door I found, painted the backside and now use a dry erase marker to write directly on the front side of the glass. And, with my new aqua backing call it a “DIY dry erase board”.
Did you catch all of those very specific project details? ;)
Let’s take a closer look, shall we?!? And I warn you, this picture is not for the faint of heart.
1) Apparently you don’t even need to put a complete coat of paint on the backside of the window for it to look like a pretty background from the front. #intentionalimperfectionismybff
2) No, I did not bother to re-finish the backside of the door. I haven’t shared with you the
horror joy that was the actual door upgrade process yet. Another warning here, that post is definitely not for any woodworking purists. #lazydiyeratyourservice
3) Yes, there is all kinds of randomness going on on the floor and desk. #keepin’itreal
I was definitely surprised to see all of the bad painting action going on when I went into the closet since it really does look great from the front. Let’s remind ourselves how great.
Seriously, not even a hint of the bad paint job hidden behind my fancy dry erase board. Phew! :)
And, uhhhh, yeah. I’m not one of those people with pretty penmanship and do kind of begrudge those of you who are. Grrrr. (Did I really just growl on the blog?) :/
And, I’m definitely not It’s a Cinching it again on my own. Click on the pictures below to see what my Mission: Possible gals tackled this time around. We’ll be posting a new It’s a Cinch project the first Monday of every month, cause who doesn’t like to start the month with a little somethin’ simple. :) Especially after a weekend with a holiday dedicated to drinking margaritas. Am I right?
If you, too, love a simple project and have one you’d like to share please include a link in your comment to this post. I’d love to check it out and add it to our group It’s a Cinch pin board.
So let’s see it. What really easy projects have you tackled lately? Or, have you pulled anything fun out of a dumpster?
