Monogram Monday #1


I love monograms.  I love classic monograms, contemporary monograms, single letter monograms, monogram embroidery...I just love them.  I decided to dedicate Mondays to all things monograms.

For my kick-off monogram Monday, I decided to add a "C" to a mini garden toolbox that I picked up at Joann's a while back on the clearance rack for $1.97.  I used some off-white craft paint for the "C", went over it with an antiquing glaze, and took my sandpaper to it.  Then I wrapped some jute tightly around the handle, and glued the ends down.


Now I had a cute place to hold some of my seashells!
