Time to start a permanent blog

After The Wine Label Project was complete, I decided it was time to just keep a more permanent, less project-focused blog. So I thought to myself, if I wanted to talk about things, what would I talk about? Well, that's easy.



Mod Podge.

So this is a place for me to share the culinary adventures that Chris and I take, the wines we share, and the projects I create with Mod Podge.

And with that, I thought the first post would fittingly be about my very first Mod Podge project. The pictures below show my first introduction to Mod Podge. I was in high school, and decided to redo an old hope chest of my grandmother's. I had a lot of old pictures of her with no use for them, and this old stained hope chest that her mother had made her out of a John Deere milk crate.

Enjoy the transformation:

And so began the love of Mod Podge :)
