TIME OUT!



I'VE BEEN A BAD GIRL!



TIME OUT!
MY MOM BABYSITS A FEW KIDS AND
SHE ASKED ME IF I COULD MAKE THIS
LITTLE BENCH FOR HER.



I USED MINERAL SPIRITS
TO CLEAN OFF THE CRAYON THAT WAS
SCRIBBLED ALL OVER. IT CAME OFF
INSTANTLY...

I ADDED SOME WORDS...


AND PAINT...
I USED A WATERED DOWN MIXTURE
AS I WANTED IT TO HAVE A
WASHED LOOK TO IT.
THEN I USED WAX FOR THE FINISH.

I TRANSFORMED IT INTO
A TIME OUT SPOT.









THE BENCH IS SMALL AS IT IS MENT
FOR TODDLERS. THE BEAUTIFUL
SCENERY IS COMPLIMENTS OF MY MOM'S
WONDERFUL LANDSCAPE SHE GETS TO
LOOK AT EVERYDAY IN UPSTATE NY!


MY MOM LOVES IT BUT THE KIDS MIGHT
HAVE MIXED FEELINGS.

  10. That's funny. I was thinking yesterday about making a cute little timeout seat. My little toddler has recently been doing little toddler things...I'm sure you can imagine why I need the timeout seat. haha!
