I'm on the Ranger blog today with a quick tutorial on up cycling an old paint brush. If you’ve ever been to a flea market or thrift store, you may have seen old paint brushes for sale. You may even have some around the house or out in the garage from old painting projects. Even if you don’t have any- you can easily find some new bristles to play with from the dollar store. Grab a brush, old or new, and let’s give it a brighter, definitely more colorful life than hanging in a barn.
Check out the tutorial here:
I found a binder last year crammed full of photo album page protectors for 50¢. I originally only got it for the protectors but this has turned out to be a really sturdy binder so I gave it a face lift with some Brea Reese Acrylic Paint and stencils.
Here's another use for those magnets laying around if you're not into alphabet stamps (and a good way to use some of your stamps you may not use as much). These make great gifts for this little reminders you can post on the fridge or your workplace filing cabinet. Layout and paint the Scotch Packaging Re-Use Cover-Up Roll. Stamp your images and then cut around the edges. Put a layer of Mod Podge Sealer on top and your done! Simple as that!
This is a great way to use up those magnet calendars or really big magnets or even the business card magnets. I rolled out the Scotch Packaging Re-Use Cover-Up Roll and painted it. I drew some lines to stamp the letters on straight and then stamped some alphabet letters on top and sealed them with Mod Podge Sealer. Oh, plus a layer of glitter nail polish for added glam! I then cut the magnet to size to fit the letter shapes. Any small scraps can be turned into an exclamation point or periods, commas, etc. Easy Peasy!
