We all love ugly duckling stories, right?
We love burlap and calendars and glossy black frames and projects we can do for free.
I had this ugly duckling that has been hanging around out of sight since high school (um, early 90s...)
I took it apart, cleaned it up, painted it black, exchanged the tacky gold-framed picture cut-outs for burlap and ended up with this swan:
Isn't she pretty?
The white paper is behind the glass, while the writing is on the outside.
That means I can erase the calendar each month and start again!
It's the same idea as this Menu Board that I did a year ago:
I'm also loving that my boys went to the garden while they were playing outside this morning. When they came back their wagon was full of this:
Isn't that nice of my 2- and 4-year-old to do?
I'm also loving Beth at Home Stories A to Z. Not only did she mention me in her Tips & Tutes this week, but she also featured me at Tip Junkie Decorate!
Ok, so it wasn't ME she featured, it was this adorable mobile:
Hope you can find an ugly duckling to transform today!
