Love Lives Here by Lesley

Hello peeps. Lesley here with an easy peasy home decor piece for you!

There are new goodies in the shop, and i am so in love with the little houses. This is what i came up with......

Super speedy to make. I started out by gluing the houses together, and then priming them all with a coat of gesso.

Next i gave them a couple of coats of white paint. Once they were dry, i added ink to all the edges.

Using the end of a paintbrush, i added some small dots with red paint, just to add a pop of colour.

I couldn't find my blackboard paint i free hand painted a square of plain black chalk acrylic onto each house. Then i used Decoart chalkboard paint on top. This is fab stuff, it enables any surface to become a blackboard basically!

I added some words to the top of the houses and used a chalk board pen to write on them.
Obviously can write what ever you feel like on them......changing it daily!

Thanks for reading!
