adios snowman...

so i bought this beastly thing for $2/$3
{yes i seen past all that beastly-ness}

i sanded it some {i'm not a big sander so the less sanding the better}
and then i took it outside to spray paint it black.
after i was done spray painting it, it looked like this:
{remember this paper from here?}

i had my paper picked out and i got out my mod podge.
this is the biggest surface area that i have mod podged.
it was a challenge, harder than i thought it would be.

wanna see the end result??
{don't you love all of my picture taking places? haha!}

yes it is glorious!! it will be my center of my kitchen table...
although it does need some friends other than the salt & pepper.

one last look? okay you talked me into it. =)
