Be sure to watch the latest trailer of Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell no Tales. Pirates of the Caribbean comes to theaters May 26!
Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new
“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck
Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the
terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at
sea—notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he
must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer,
and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying
Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill
fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.
This has been a project I’ve wanted to create ever since I saw the post on “PB Inspired Mirror” I headed to my local dollar tree yesterday and grabbed 9 of the same identical mirror. I must have just caught them on a new shipment because I swear that never happens. Anyways, using my dollar store duct tape I finally got to work. I taped like crazy lining things up just right to make sure it came out as perfect as it could.
- 9 Mirrors that are identical. (I grabbed 9 from my local Dollar Tree.)
- Duct Tape (really durable, don’t cheap out!)
- Foam Board (cut to size)
Looks elegant for under $10. Give or takes a couple bucks depending on how much the duct tape cost.
Was fairly simple to create. I was happy to finally try this! Simple, easy and looks really nice!
Finding a backing. You need to find something really sturdy to keep it from bending. You need to find something to install on the back so you can hang it. I used cardboard from a box for the backing only to realize that it wasn’t sturdy enough. I got to get some foam board or something really durable to put behind it.
I really enjoyed this. I was so glad I could finally get it done. I need to get this installed in my hallway or bedroom. So cute. I certainly recommend to try making one of these. It’s also perfect for a mantle above a fire place.
Hi ladies and gents! I decided to finally get around another blog post again. I wanted to share about this re-purposing project I decided to finally get to. I got this entry table given to me a month ago from my neighbor during her move. She had told me that it had a lot of life left in it & I could easily sand & re-purpose. She certainly was right. I headed to Lowe’s and look around the mistint paint area and stumbled across Valspar Chalky Finish Paint tinted in just white.
Previously, I had already bought a dark maroon color one for just $2.50 and decided to re-purpose some dressers. I will get around to finally posting that blog post, but for now I’m going to just stick with this table. Make sure to gather all of your materials. This project would normally cost you around $40 but since I found the paint for $5, I got some pretty huge savings.
- Valspar Chalky Finish Paint in White ($5 from the Mistint area in the Paint section)
- Phillips Screwdriver for Hardware removal & reassembly ($1 from Lowes)
- 2 Contact Paper in Pattern of Choice ($2 grabbed from the Dollar Tree)
- Paint Brush ( I went towards the cheaper one…$1 or so. You can find these anywhere)
- Motivation & A Go-To Attitude
Total Cost: Just under $10 total.
Since I had already worked with this product before, I felt like a pro the second time around. It goes on smooth and applies pretty even. These pictures below are just with one coat. It does coat fairly even with one coat. I suggest to get more boldness be sure to do two to three coats. I didn’t sand beforehand like I originally wanted but that’s okay. I’m currently waiting for the chalky paint to dry as I’m writing this blog post.
I got to say I’m pretty impressed. This stuff retails for merely $30! I got this for $5.00 in the mistint and I couldn’t be any happier. While I find this paint a tad bit too pricey, you certainly do get what you pay for.
Here’s a slider of the process it took.
