Hiding Mistakes {Latest Signs}

My blond moment made this one of my favorite signs!  So yeah.  Those rolled fabric rosettes you see there?  They actually weren't originally intended for this sign.  You see, they are a result of this:
So rather than yanking out the little guys and trying to repair the damage... I decided to get crafty and just cover it up.  Pretty cute solution, I'd say!  Nobody will ever know......  except you of course.  Shhh!

And here are a few more I finished up this week on the wonderful cupboard doors a friend from the cheese state gave me.  I love it when people think of me before they get rid of their "junk"! :)
Since there was a hole on the cupboard doors from where the knobs had been, I figured it'd make a cute spot to hang something and for this one I used these curtain finials I got for 25 cents!  
I never go into Bed Bath and Beyond unless I see one of those extra 75% off bins.  Then it's usually well worth meandering into the store!

Yeah, here's another attempt at hiding my mistakes.  Didn't get the spacing right on my words, so I tried to sneak in a few stencils to mask it.... not sure if it worked or not!  Oh well, we'll see if someone buys it, eh? :)

These are all for sale at Fabulous Darling in Brooklyn, MI.  Stop in if you're in the area!!

  1. The best projects are the ones that don't turn out as planned. I learned that this week from a project I made! I LOVE your rosette sign!!! I am going to do that, mistake or not mistake. :)

  2. A little creativity can go a long way! Often a mistake makes a project unique =) xo Anja

  3. I love the rosettes, Kammy! They look like they were meant to be on there. I totally understand about hiding mistakes sometimes. I had to do the same thing on a little suitcase I just made over.

  4. Oh, I you know I am loving your rosettes on the adorable sign!! We both made the best out of a mistake this week! Oh, how I love it. :)

  5. Love your 'Blessed' Sign and your creativity! Found you @ Keeping it Simple.
