Weekend Coffee Share – Trip to IKEA for crafting decor items

My dearest friend and fellow blogger Amelia at You Can Always Start Now has turned me onto Weekend Coffee Share. She got turned on to it by Eclectic Ali.

It’s exactly what the title indicates – share something on your mind or something you have done over the past week.

It is a long weekend here in my part of the world, which means three days off in a row.

Most people have gone away for the weekend but I had no plans. I’ve pretty much been on the go every weekend since summer started so I decided this was the weekend to rejuvenate.

I’ve recently become a Designer with Chalk Couture in Canada and am so pleased with the products.  What is Chalk Couture – well, you can check that out here if want to.

Of course, like any company they sell and encourage you to use their products and for the most part I do. However, I like to push limits sometimes and I was curious as to what types of surfaces you can use this chalk paste and ink on.  Off to IKEA I went, so I could have some crafty projects to keep me busy on this long weekend (besides the two books I devoured so far).

For just under $50.00 I found 10 surfaces I could customize. A laundry basket, two blank pillow covers, a wooden crate (assembly required), three fake succulents in one package, one real succulent, a boot mat, and a soap dispenser.

I’ve created something on all of them except the crate – maybe I’ll feel like assembling that tomorrow.

So as I drink my coffee and write my post, I think well now that was fun and WOW 10 personalized items for under 50 bucks.

I’ll be posting pics and details in a soon to be published post.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you back here soon.

I’d love it if you would follow me at all these lovely places:
