I am super excited about this project! Every time I go places I always look for fun objects that I can practice my painting.. practice my textures.On my last Dollar Tree I noticed white butter dish . Didn’t have big plans for it but I knew I will do something with it soon. Had a feeling that it is going to be something addicting so I picked 3. Yup I did pick that many. If you follow me for some time you do know I love MacKenzie Childs merchandise so one of those butter dishes will get its upscale diy with courtly check pattern! High end diy on the budget are my favorite especially MacKenzie Childs inspired
I have made so many projects inspired by MacKenzie Childs merchandise. You know that i love details and textures and of course love surprises in my projects.
