The original for this can be found on Melony Bradley's blog Mel Designs. Melony provides great instructions for this project. I made mine a bit differently as I used only one sheet of scrap book paper. This is what I love about crafting and blogging. We can all make the same project and no two will be alike!
I found the plaque at a local craft store for $2.99. This one is 9 x 12 inches.
I painted the edge of the plaque with sample paint I had purchased a while ago from Lowe's. Did you know that they sell sample jars for less than 5 bucks! I think it a lot less but can't remember exactly. I bought 2 jars of this color, which is a rosy peach. So far I have painted one of those small media shelving units that are about 3 1/2 feet high and 12 inches wide (to hold jewelry and scarves, what else!?) and a Pottery Barn shelf that I bought second hand. I still have enough to paint another small shelf that I bought second hand. All of these shelves and plaques have ended up (or will end up!) in the dressing area of our bedroom. I eventually plan on painting the walls a pale peach and this color will be a great accent. Enough of that...
I had this piece of scrap book paper on hand and loved the colors and designs.
