It's time for another DIY Blogger Project Challenge!
Each month we have a different project to create based on a named material theme. This month it's burlap or ticking!
I'm working on my kitchen makeover and the one thing I really needed to do was brighten up my window sill and tidy up the herbs.
It's a dark and gloomy area, even with the lights on during the day.
Luckily, I bought a metal box at a thrift shop that fits perfectly on the window sill. (it was originally for votive candles). But as you can see it's the wrong color. With ticking ribbon wrapped around it, I thought it would be perfect for the area.
I roughly painted the box in white. While it dried, I used an empty label sticker outline as a stencil to paint chalkboard labels onto the ribbon.
Once the chalkboard paint dried, I glued the ribbon onto the box.
Then, added the plants and labeled them accordingly.
It fits perfectly on the window sill.
I can water them at the sink and use them for recipes conveniently.
It's much brighter and neater.
I can't reveal the whole area just yet. The kitchen makeover is in the works. The mess and awesomeness will stay hidden for now.
I also put together a ticking liner for our bread basket tray. It looks good and it keeps any ties and tags from getting lost. Ticking is a great accent in the farmstyle kitchen. I love that classic linen. I'm going to make some chair pads with it.
This was super easy to do and it looks a whole lot better.
Let's head over to the other ideas this month!
Oh wowzers; they are really nice!
