Hey y’all! Sometimes you just need a little crafting therapy, right? Today I’m in one of my favorite places, here with you all, crafting a bit of stress away! Come hang out, and let’s make something pretty.
Check out the video below and leave a “replay” comment if you’d like!
Here’s what I started with! I decided not to paint the rooster weathervane just yet, but stay tuned!
Lizzy and Erin Designs: Water Girl Continuous Spray Bottle
Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint: White Swan, Gravel Road, Mint Chip
Other paint: Teal

Now let’s have some crafty time!
I’m starting with the decorative boards. I’m thinking of hanging them above my doors on the inside of the house.
I’m using Debi’s Design Diary Gravel Road for the first coat of paint.
I’m drying it with my heat tool, but you can always set yours aside to dry if you would like.
I’m using the Lizzy and Erin Designs Water Girl Continuous Spray Bottle to wet my brush for the top coat, which is White Swan. Just a mist on your paintbrush, or the lid, not in the jar of paint. You just want a little mist.
Once the White Swan dried, I used my sanding sponge to bring back some of the Gravel Road (gray) and also the wood beneath.
Here’s the look I was going for! Yay! It’s a good craft day, y’all!
Now for the chicken feeder!
I am alternating that teal color and Mint Chip to create a certain look. Can we just have a moment over that Mint Chip on the right? It’s absolutely beautiful!
I’m just alternating here, by brushing on some of the teal followed by the Mint Chip.
I dried the feeder with my heat tool. After it was dry, I used my sanding sponge to bring back some of the metal.
This is the finish! I love, love, love it, y’all!
Two quick projects that just make me happy. I hope you enjoyed it also!
Let me know in the comments what kind of crafting is your comfort zone. Maybe we will do that one day!
Thank you so much for stopping by,
