This is an oh-so-clever idea from the very crafty b*spoke that I just love! How simple and how sweet. I’m thinking this little board would look just perfect in my kitchen, and that I might have an ideal frame lying around from a recent garage sale find…
The quick and dirty directions:
(1) Paint your frame your favorite color
(3) Use chalkboard paint to thoroughly cover inner glass
(4) Hang and admire
Jump on over to the FULL DIY instructions here! Check in on her great tips and tricks for making this project as easy as possible. Bethany is incredibly talented and b*spoke is scheduled to be featured in an upcoming Friday Guest Blog post… stay tuned!

This idea is too great. Wrap up those random bottles and labels for your upcoming events – from showers to bbqs – with beautiful scraps of favorite scrapbooking or wrapping paper (maybe even fun stickers or remnants of vintage wallpaper?). Nicely ties signature drinks in with the party *theme* and hides unsightly labels (or two buck chuck!).
I really love the reusable glass jar as well – a great way to hold and identify mixers such as cranberry juice, oj, or club soda again and again for each get together.

These inspiration boards were built from images found at Style Me Pretty — forever a favorite! I love the idea of homemade purple candies wrapped in doilies, a mis-mash of jars & vases full of flowers, and soft purple ribbons draped about silverware & centerpieces. Read more »
