Welcome everyone to "The Prim Patch"

I have always loved the look of Prim. The last several years I've tried whatever Prim crafting projects I could find. I love workin' with wood, sewing, stitchery, really any crafts...I could work on projects all day everyday!! (If life were that easy...LOL)
I'm hoping to be able to share anything and everything Prim I can do/find with everyone.
Be sure to follow my blog to see what we can create together.

I have a few things on my blog for Sale...you can check them out here.

Watcha Workin' on Wednesday...

Hello Everyone!!!
It's been awhile since I've posted...but I sure have been workin' on things.
Here's one of the things I'm workin' on now. It's not all the way done...kinda wanted to give ya a sneak peak.
Anyway...I found these 2 shades at the GW for 2.00 each....I've been lookin' for something to change the way my lights above my sink in my kitchen look. I couldn't believe I found 2 of the same. That never happens for me.

Plus, they are the perfect size for my lights

Here's a before look of my windows and lights. Sorry the pic. is so dark...but you get the idea. If you look real close...you can see my UGLY lights under my curtains. Curtains are going too.

Here's the finished shade. I used my Plaid FolkArt Oak stain. I used it as though it was paint. I painted 2 coats of the stain...letting it dry in between coats. Then I made a template to trace my star on to the shade...painted that with the Plaid Apple Barrel Barn Red paint.

Here's a Better pic...(took it at night). I still need to finish my curtains. Hoping to get those done tonight.
I'll post more pics once I get the curtains done too.

Hope ya like my sneak peak!!
Have a Wonderful Evening!!!
