Things Worth While...

This post was featured on the Thrifty Grove

Hope you don't do what my sister did (by accident). She was rearranging my blog look and DELETED the Linky Followers (thought it was a title). 
Groan (she REALLY GROANED and cried a bit too) and couldn't get them back. 
SO If you were a Linky follower could you link up again. 
Thursday I learned how to make homemade Chalk Paint and got started on 3 projects.
Here is the first one.

First project for my homemade chalk paint is a dark and unusual wall shelf.
Wow Spring Flowers!!
Mixing the Paint
plaster of paris powder 2 measures
slightly warm water 2 measures
latex paint 7 measures
Lots of surface to paint on this long ago homemade project.

I love the light green.
Starting adding the displays. Whimsical Chip Carving
Ice Pick handle with saying, always interesting.
Bottom shelf has a 1928 weeder and the Long Horn Hook made by my Uncle Dave Hunt


  1. You continue to amaze me with your creative ideas!! I love LOVE the green color!!!
    Great post - as always!

    Like the new header, too.

  2. good morning Rob. I love that shelf, so unusual and that is my favorite color. You did a great job and it looks so fresh. Love homemade chalk paint. You have some really interesting collections. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Wow, what an interesting shelf! That alone grabs your attention, but after you painted it, it was amazing! Love your collection too!

  4. Love the colour - I've never tried ASCP, even though Annie is English like me and I used to watch her on tv. It's just not a big phenomenom over here. I keep seeing it in blogland and I'm going to have to get some to try.
    Just noticed you live on Vancouver Island - I went there when I was six (a very long time ago) and had a great time.
    Happy painting, making and blogging !

  5. Beautiful color! I love the "Things Worth While" picture, too!

  6. What a great transformation! Totally changes the look of that unique shelf! And thanks for the tutorial on making your own chalkpaint. I have tried it yet but, i hope when the weather gets nice I can try this out! Thank you for joining TTF and have a wonderful week!

  7. Wow love the color! Great post and thanks for linking up!

  8. Just dropping back by to let you know that I will be featuring this post in this week's TTF linky party! I hope to see you join again and don't forget to stop by and pick up your "I was featured" button! Party will be posted Thursday at 4:00

  9. Very pretty color! And this was the fourth link about chalk paint during Friday's Refresh Your Nest party, so I'm thinking I need to jump on the bandwagon and try it for myself. Thanks for linking up!

  10. Very nice! Thank you for sharing at Potpourri Friday! I am following via linky and hope you will too.
