Let it Snow.

Happy Happy ALMOST weekend friends!
I am SOOOO excited for this weekend because my sister-in-law {who is away for school} 
is coming home tomorrow!!!!
Yayyy!
Soooo that means that we will have a fun weekend full of family time! 
Sooooo I had to get my last few Christmas projects finished up so that I could be all ready to host my in-laws!

And soooo I finished up this project that I have been thinking about for some time now!


I had some fun up-cycling and refinishing a vintage sled for the winter season!
{I am all about winter decor vs Christmas decor 
because it means I will get to enjoy it just that much longer}


I mixed the chalk paint colors-old white and province to make this light teal that I am so so crazy about.
I cut my words out in vinyl using my favorite cutting tool the silhouette and added the stripes by taping off the sections with plain old painters tape.
I would have never guessed that I would love the green and the teal so much together.... 
butt ooh how I do!
And then I did my favorite part---I distressed the piece to perfection.




And I truly think that the best part about finishing a project is finding it the perfect home.
& I found this guy
a home right in my entryway.  


I am so enjoyingmy holiday decor... 
Check out my holiday home tour {living room edition} HERE!
Andddd I know I said that today would be the day I share my kitchen holiday decor.... buttt that will come your way early next week instead!

I am linking up to a few of my favorite link parties!

That is a great idea to upcycle an old vintage sled. I don't know how you do it, over, and over, and over again!

Love it - the sled turned out perfect. I had several vintage sleds that I sold but I will have to be on the lookout for a new one to try this idea with!

You are so amazing at upcycle projects! I hope the hubby slips a silhouette machine under the tree this year for me. I have him convinced that it can make EVERYTHING...LOL Like I might share this with him and tell him the maching actually made the sled....not just the lettering..LOL

I love it. I have an old sled but am a bit scared of messing with it. I like what you did though.

Looks like I need to get my hands on an old sled. That is just a fantastic piece on its own, but the "touch-ups" really add something classy.
