A BITTERSWEET thing for Me! And the WINNER is....

Hey-O Ladies!
I hope EVERYONE had a BLESSED Easter!

OOK!  So I have check and RECHECKED the entries and have drawn a winner!!!
This is SO BITTERSWEET for me!   I LITERALLY agonize over these Giveaways...I KNOW...STUPID, right?   Well....I cant help it!!!  I WANT to give the WIN to EVERYONE!  I swear...If God ever lets us get Wealthy...I am going to have just a GIVEAWAY!   NO ENTRIES, NO DRAWING a name...Just a GIVEAWAY...EVERYONE WINS!!!

There were so many of you PRECIOUS, SWEET, LOVING, CARING and DESERVING girls out there that I consider MY DEAR FRIENDS that signed up for the Blog Facelift...{This is KILLING ME!}...But I HAD TO Draw 1 Winner....HOWEVER...Melanie and I have talked and are going to TEAM UP for another lil sumpin, sumpin!  SO, be looking for that! 

OK, so, the WINNER of the Blog Facelift is......

OH YEAH!  I forgot that a couple of weeks back I showed yall lil tidbits of things I had been working on....
Remember this...

Gosh...I feel like I am FORGETTING to tell yall SOMETHING...Hhmmm, I cant remember...


Well, that lil project from a few weeks back has been FINISHED and sitting in DRAFT MODE in my posts for AGES, so, here it is...
Weeeell....What is this THING that the Hub has had sitting in the garage 4 Eva'???
OH!  Its a Water Heater pan!  Hhhmmmmm.....
{17.00 at Ace}



Hows about a lil CHALKBOARD PAINT {one of my Favorite Things!}




I GUESS you see where I am GOING???




Dont forget the back...With just plain Black spraypaint!  The Chalkboard paint is $$pensive!




And I just happen to have these PRETTY little iron pieces in my Iron pieces TREASURE BASKET!

MAN!  Am I FORGETTING to Tell yall something???
If you think of something Im supposed to be telling you...Give me a ring a ding ding!!

HEY, YOU!  Yeah YOU!  The one SCROLLING down to the BOTTOM of this post...
Get back up here!  PRONTO! 
{LOL!}



OK!  4 {Yes, FOUR} coats of Chalkboard Spraypaint!  More is BETTER!




I want a lil Somethin extra on THIS Chalkboard!  I have this Cross stencil I made...
LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURVE IT!




These would look just "Heavenly" together!




I want the cross paint to match the iron accents...




Now...Just stick Post It Notes ALL OVER THE Chalkboard and call it a DAY!
JK!




If you need to "Tack" something down to do something like this...Sticking Tape to the Chalkboard {that MIGHT peel the paint off}  use Post it notes!  They work GREAT and wont peel off the paint!
Ive gotta say...Im a lil Jelli {Jealous} of MR or Mrs "Post It Note" inventor...
Sticky on a piece of paper...BAM!  A Billionair!  REALLY???
Why cant I ever come up with something like THAT!




Aaaaand!  Paint!



Am I forgetting to tell yall a step here...or SOMETHING?!

LUUUUUUUURVE these iron accents!




And I have gone over the cross with another little darker paint color...to match the iron!




LOVE IT!  L-O-V-E!!!




OOP!  Karas got the GOOP!




I ran a small line at the spot where I want the accents attached...




Then ....STICK EM! 
 Kinda like a POST IT NOTE!  Except MY STICK IT wont make me a
GaZillionair!
 Wwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!




Ooooooooooooooooooooooo Nooooooooooooooooooooo!!!
Theres a HOOOOLE in the Bucket {Pan} Dear Liza, Dear Liza...
Theres a HOOOLE in the Bucket {Pan} Dear Liza, a HOLE!
Remember that song???

OK!  Sorry...I think my PAIN MEDS are getting to my head...GOOFY!




Haaa-LOOOOOO  HOLE!
What to do with YOU?!




Hhhmmm!  Me THINKS I have an IDEER!




Pullin out the same paint I used on the Cross Stencil...

What am I FORGETTING???
YO!  Liza...Theres a HOLE in my HEAD!  I cant REMEMBER SOMETHIN!




PAINT!  YES...Even the INSIDE!
Cuz, people like me will look inside!  So ANNOYING...I KNOW!




OK!  Now that its done I need to add the Dark to match the Iron and the Cross...





I used the little sponge to add the darker paint....



Okie Dokie!  Much betta'




See...MATCHES :)




OOP!  Ive got the GOOP again!
Goop that lil teeny tiny clay pot into the HOLE...Liza...

This will be PERFECT to hold the sticks of Chalk :)




THIS IS CHALK!
CHALK...meet AAAAAAAALL my Blog Girlfriends!!!!
Guuuuuurrrlzzz...MEET CHALK!
:0)





Now take that chalk and RUB it over the ENTIRE surface!






And RUB......




And R-U-B, RUB....




BAM!
Now it looks a MESS!
With THAT said...this would be a GREAT step for your kiddos to do!
HECK...They do it on the WALLS...Why not the Chalkboard!

Did I forget to mention something???




Now...ERASE all the MESS!





And now your NEW chalkboard is Weathered...Like your WALLS...
LOL!  Or a few doors in the house too!




Now it just needs a HANGER ON THE BACK!
Is THAT what I was forgetting to tell yall???
NO...Thats not it...

SO...Get the GOOP and apply some of it to the hanger to attach ....




THEN....If you are IMPATIENT IRMA, like ME...
Add some hot glue....so you can go ahead and Hang it!
I would just HATE to have to wait OVERNIGHT!




VOILA!
Holla!
Gimme a SHOUT OUT!
WooHoo!
Yippie Skippie!
SaaWeet!!!
YeeHaw!
Do Da Chicken Dance!
HELLERRR!
LUUUUUUUUUUUUUURVE!
Cock-A-Doodle-Doo!!!

OK...REWIND....
That last one doesnt really work!



Its a Waterheater Pan turned BIG Chalkboard!!!
For about 20 DOLLA$ !!!


Well.....There it is!  My "Teaser" from a few weeks ago :)

WHAT IN THE HAY am I forgetting to tell yall???
Well...I guess I will just have to think about it and tell yall tomorrow!
