Pick Your Plum Block

Ok I really don't know what to call today's craft room project!  I bought this a while back when it was one of Pick Your Plum's deal along with 5 additional pieces of metal.  I wanted the extra sheets to use on the cork board that's in Lil' Hunkie's bedroom and thought the block stand would be cute in my craft room.  I really like how  it turned out and it was oh so easy!

Pick Your Plum block with metal sheet
Paint and brushes
Sanding block
Scrapbook paper
Mod Podge

I mixed my navy blue craft paint with a metallic silver craft paint to tone down the navy and it gave it a little bit of shimmer! After painting it I lightly sanded, especially on the edges.

Then I cut out a piece of scrapbook paper and mod podged it on. {I only applied paper to the front.}
And done! So simple!

Do you have one of these?
If I ever find money in the laundry this is where it'll go...using a magnet for cash and that little ledge for coins! Though Hunkie is good about emptying his pockets!

Happy Thursday!
