DIY Drink Station

This DIY Drink Station was a fun upcycle from a thrift store side table.

When I found out I was doing a fun party in conjunction with my friends at Dr. Pepper {you can see that post here}, I wanted something super fun and vintage-y to hold some of the sodas for the party. I originally planned to build something, but then stumbled onto a great side table at Goodwill. Oh, you know I popped those tags.

Kristi's Paintbrush is Live!

Today's the day! 
My second blog is live with a fun post about patina and my pantry door.

Around March, I started to mull over the idea of adding a second blog to my life...one that would purely encompass something I love dearly: PAINT!

Then, in April, I went to the SNAP conference and chatted with several of my close bloggy friends about my idea of starting a second blog. I wanted to find out if they all thought it was nuts {let's face it, it's kind of is}. Everyone was so kind with advice and ideas. And here we are at day one! 

My second blog, Kristi's Paintbrush, has its first post and is all ready for its big roll out. It's a place purely devoted to all things paint and my love of it. And...{eek}, I'm using Wordpress over there. Yes, breaking out of my comfy blogger world and using WP for it. Who knows? I may make the leap over here, too. It's not nearly as scary as I thought it would be {although, I still have a lot to learn}!
I will still post over here five days a week, just like usual.
I will post over there on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tuesday, I will post a new project of my own every week. Thursday, I will be highlighting posts from my favorite bloggers who love paint just as much as I do. Let me know if you have a project you'd like featured there!

Today, I'm sharing how I transformed my pantry door with a very cool metal paint that has a funky blue patina layered on top of it. 

Check it out here.

Happy Painting!
