I don’t have many ‘real life’ friends that share my passions for sewing and party throwing and general crafting, and I’ve loved connecting with people (like Alicia! and y’all!) who totally
understand put up with my need to text pictures of the shower decor I’m working on for this weekend (true story) or emails full of sewing questions. Having YOU fills this space in my life that would be otherwise be void (especially with Jord moving overseas in a few weeks).
Some of you are spread all over North America (and the world!)… and some of you are right here in Colorado! And I love that!
A few weeks ago, I had the chance to meet up with the Colorado contingent of bloggers I’ve *met* online. We chatted over Swedish meatballs and then meandered around Ikea, searching for a blank project canvas. After selecting the Tajma Clock, we all headed back to our various corners of Denver to make it our own.
And today is our big reveal!
Knowing that Piper Jane’s room was needing a clock, I took my ‘blank canvas’ as well as a pile of paint chips we had on hand from some of her room projects…
…positioned them on the clock to determine placement and settled on a little sunburst pattern…
…and glued them in place.
Then I made up a “You Are My Sunshine” graphic and printed it out. Using the original clock face as my template (tracing around the edge and in the middle of my template on the backside of my graphic printout), I cut my sunshine graphic to match.
I positioned the circle in the clock, added my Newly Metallic (courtesy of some metallic paint from my Martha Stewart loot) hands back onto the clock, placed the plastic clock face protector back in place…
…and hung in Piper Jane’s room! LOVELOVELOVELOVE!
Best of all, Courtney from Sweet C’s Designs, Angela from Better Together, Tara from Taradara Made It, and Alison from Oopsey Daisy all made this blank canvas clock their own as well! I love these girls (love them!) and am so thankful for the chance to do this Ikea Clock Makeover with them!
ps- If you’re in Denver/Colorado and want in on our next meet up, email me (kojodesignsAThotmail.com)! We are in the middle of planning a couple more get togethers and we’d love it if you’d join us!
