Shamrock

Last week, my friend Debbie asked if I had seen the 
DARLING Bead Board Shamrock on Lolly Jane's blog??
I hadn't, so I headed over & found this...
 She asked if I wanted to come over the next day & replicate!?!
Of COURSE I did!!!

I brought over some scrap beadboard & Debbie had paints galore & her wonderful husband cut out the shamrocks for us, that we painted green...
I didn't have any plywood, but we had some CUPBOARD DOORS that we scored for FREE awhile back, so I brought one over, hoping I could make it work. It wasn't a square, but I figured it would be cute & painted the border green & the base white...
After adding the shamrock, there was a LOT of WHITE SPACE...
but thanks to Debbie & her stash of chipboard letters, I dug around and found the letters, "LUCKY", painted them green & poured on the glitter! Once I got home I decided there was still enough white space to add "YOU" & cut out the letters on my Cricut using some cute green scrapbook paper. Then I added a few shiny shamrocks that I had sitting in an Apothecary Jar on my entry table...
Almost forgot to mention, that after painting the cupboard door & shamrock, I decided to distress it with a sander...
And it was DONE! 
Thanks Debbie & Janell for the fun afternoon of CRAFTIFYING!!!

I love this. You could do so much with shapes cut out of beadboard!
