Sometimes a piece of scrap wood has so much character that it just can't be tossed away. This adorable block was just screaming, "Paint me! Paint me!" How could I say no to this chippy edged nugget with all the lovely grain. I gave it a coat of black chalk paint, distressed it back just a touch to show some of the original wood color, and then added "cozy" to one side and "grateful" to the other. At time it's good to be two sided! For the final touch I wiped on some white wax to sit in all of the nooks and crannies and to protect this adorable block. Perfect for adding to a shelf, tiered tray, mantle, or accent table.
