This is not my usual sort of finish. No fabric involved but it was something I have wanted to do for a while (don't worry there's some pretty fabric at the end of this post!). We have an area of our kitchen counter that gets used for dumping letters and various paper stuff and it drives me mad! I bought this from ebay in the hopes that I could start clearing off the counter and organise the paper clutter:

But I'm not a gardener and it's a bit twee for my liking so I broke out the paint and now have this:

Not a perfect job but much better. I'm thinking of hanging bull dog clips off those hooks so I can clip important notes or letters I need to respond to on there. Now I just have to get it hung up and hope it prevents the dumping ground! 

If you would like a deal this weekend then head over to Green Fairy Quilts because they are having a massive sale with up to 50% off fat quarter bundles.

I love the dots from Riley Blake, they have a whole rainbow of gorgeous Robert Kaufman solids, as well as gorgeous prints from Moda, like this Paradiso by Kate Spain, and much more. Head over and check it out!

Have a fabulous and fun filled weekend everyone :)

linking up to finish it up friday at crazy mom quilts
