It’s been a busy summer here at the “Pinning” household. The past 62 days have been filled with statements like, “Ooh, check this out! We can make this!” and “So I went to the thrift store today because…”
All for the adventure called Pinning Summer.
I am Papa.
In past posts I have been known to express grief and dread about the adventure that was begun by my dear wife and Cat. But the truth is — and I say this emphatically — it was a fun adventure. It was a catalyst for us to fix some things around the house (see this post ) and it was good reason for me to get out some power tools (especially the staple gun, which technically is not a power tool, but it scared Mama nonetheless).
So, it seemed fitting for me to post this last one. It required tools, exactness, and anticipation for the future (which is not normally one of my strengths… hey I’m growing!!).
This final pin is taken from an idea found here, and I have to say, I like it a lot.
Start with a nice piece of wood that was re-purposed from an old cabinet
and paint it with black primer. Sand it lightly and make it smooth.
Then give it a couple coats of a very fine chalkboard paint (not homemade, sorry).
Now, get the tape measure out and find the middle so I can be exact with the placement of letters.
I am not one to look at things that are off-kilter without twitching.
Wait for every other letter do dry so I can paint the others and finally…
Count the days until the adventure begins again!
Grab some chalk and keep track of how many days until your next big thing.
Although there are 0 pins left for the summer,
we hope that the journey was fun for everyone and inspired you
to maybe try something that you’ve never tried before.
You never know what you may be really good at!
