Hello my friends! Today I’m going to share a simple way to transfer images using chalk. But before I do, I want to give a BIG shout out to all you fabulous DIY’er from around the globe!

Yes, old man winter is creeping in on us. I just came in from the frig’n cold (not a fan), and this past weekend the clocks were turned back an hour …a sure sign. I took full advantage of the extra hour of sleep, yet I’m still in “snail” mode today. My body clock isn’t keeping in sync with the tickers on the wall… so I’ll keep this tutorial short and sweet.

One of my clients recently purchased this gorgeous Victorian Bed off Kijiji.As you can see, this pre-loved bed had lost some of it’s original luster.

A Fan Deck can be used to choose colours for walls, floors, carpet, furniture re-do’s, fabrics, cabinets, furnishings or absolutely ANY DIY paint project you can imagine! I’m loving it because it’s compact enough to carry in my handbag so I can bring it into stores when I’m searching for that perfectly matched “anything”!
