Been There...Done That....

Now I am doing it again.......Love those egg cartons.....Here they are, cut like a jigsaw puzzle one piece at a time and glued on the Hippo Grey foundation.

It needed to be brick or stone. My favorite is always stone. Here I go again.

It's Monday and I needed something comparatively quick to finish while I was doing laundry and cleaning....Do a bit of foundation....Let it dry....Paint it.....Let it dry..... Yup. That will give me enough time between steps to get other things done that need doing.

Here is the back side after painting. I used a combo of black, white, trail tan and forest green. Pretty straight forward and simple.
There are other tutorials elsewhere on this blog for stone work, so I won't go into detail again.

Let's just say that Tessie is satisfied with it so far, so that's what counts.

To quote her, "OK. One side down. Three to go. Get back to work!....NOW!!!"

I can't argue. Too much other stuff to do.

See you tomorrow.

Tessie is certainly cracking the whip Casey. Sounds like she wants to be in Spiderwort Manor Toot Sweet.

Love the stone look. I have always wanted to use egg cartons to make a stone path or wall. I wanted to let you know that Lori from Oh Mini of Mine is sick and i started "Softies for Shelby." If you are interested in participating stop by my blog.

Ohh the stones look fabulous! I have to give them a go. I'm currently doing a box room and i've just done my first lot of egg carton bricks...they are such fun! Quite chuffed for a first effort. Dare Tessie to come prise some off LOL!
