Chevron Stool using Frog Tape Chevron Shape



As you already know I found my lovely Frog Shape tape in Chevron. I could hardly wait to get started on a project. The following is a black stool I have had forever. I did this project in just a few minutes and the results are amazing.


I started with this stool, yea kinda plain Jane ain't it. I wiped it down to make sure it was clean.


Next, I laid down my strips of tape. I didn't do lots of measuring to get this look. I'm more of an eyeball kinda girl. I eyeballed these and they look fine. 


After you get your tape laid down, now its time to choose a color. This is the hardest part of the project, trust me. I gave the stool two layers, and it's not perfect and I like it like that.


Remove tape right after painting, DO NOT LET PAINT DRY BEFORE REMOVING.
Enjoy. Isn't she lovely.

I gave my stool a coat of Poly to protect it from all that we have going on in our house. I got my inspiration from this blog here, www.southernhospitalityblog.com/chevron-stripes/.
Happy DIY'ing Ya'll!!

Frog Tape Chevron Tape



So, as I was looking around on a blog land,  I saw the new Frog Shape Tape in Chevron. The chevron pattern makes my heart sing. I know, I know it is been used on everything from toilets to curtains but, I am still in love with chevron. My mission before work this morning was to find some. Rumors were is was hard to find but, I walked right into Lowe's and there it was. I think I heard angels sing.

Finding it was not the problem but, paying for it was painful. $13 and some change for a not very big roll, 25 yards to be exact. I wrestled in my mind for a split second and reason won. And I am now the proud owner of some very cool, hip and expensive tape.

Check out one of my favorite blogs and how she used the new Frog Tape Chevron Pattern.

If you love the Chevron pattern as much as I do, make sure to pick some of this cool tape up.

Happy Taping Ya'll!!

Daydreams of Fall



With these cooler temps in the air, my mind starts drifting to other things. Like the following.

Lake Lure, NC 


I think this place is one on the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The Mountains in the background and the water is the great Fall trip for me. I like to take the Cruise on the Lake and relax while someone else drives. 


As we go thru my day dreams I also see visions of this,

Hay rides, pumpkin gathering and apple cider. To look for the perfect pumpkin while cool air blows is the perfect day.


The next part of my daydream happens right in my front yard. It is a bonfire. We built a nice fire pit  many years ago and use it all the time, in the cooler months.


Our house is in the country so having an open blazing flame is not a violation of HOA rules. We start up the fire, break out smores and even drink a few beers(or 12). 

So, not matter where your daydream takes you, embrace it. I am certainly going to try.

Happy Almost Fall Ya;ll!!
