Joining in on Watcha working on Wednesday

Hi everyone! Just a short post tonight. I am joining some of you ladies in Watcha workin on Wednesday. I have been wanting to make some gameboards and I finally got my stencils this week. This is my first try at one and I think it turned out pretty good.Thanks Char, over at the Pickled Pepper Patch, http://charsethman.blogspot.com/for your great tutorial! Michaels had a great sale last week and I picked up this board 30% off. My next one will be from wood out in my DH shed.It will be alot cheaper even though it was on sale.I used Americana Old Gold over black.

Here is a picture of the cutting boards that I painted last week but didn't get around to posting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today we had thunderstorms go thru and tornado warnings.It was pretty scary.We had high winds and alot of rain.We are suppose to have a very nice weekend here.Only in the 70's and sunny all weekend.School started here yesterday.I can't believe another summer is gone. I hope everyone is having a nice evening,until next time,

Your gameboard turned out wonderfully!! You will start working on those and before you know it... you will be addicted to making them! I know that I am. I just love creating new ones!

Your cutting boards turned out great as well.

Hugs,

Great makeovers !!

Yikes - tornadoes are so scary. I am so glad we rarely ever have them. I'd be living in the cellar!

Stay safe!

Your gameboard turned out great! And your cutting boards too.

I wish our weather was going to be that cool and nice! We are in a heat wave here.

Have a nice day!

Your boards look very nice. Good job. My kids start next week. I'm not sure I'm ready for that routine yet. Have a great day.

This is your first gameboard? I would have never known! It looks fantastic!
I would love to stencil...but my paint always bled under the stencil sheet...so I just gave it up! Maybe now I will reconsider and try again!
Enjoy your week!

Sherri,

Your gameboard turned out wonderful! I've never tried one, but I need to because I do love gameboards! And I don't think you can have too many cutting boards to decorate with! I always pick them up at GW when I see them! Everything looks great!
