Project Steps


2018 has really flown by!  I have shared so many projects with you over the past 12 months and more!  I love my HomeRight products and use them almost weekly.  Why not when they make your DIY projects so much easier and quicker!

Step 1

One of my favorite products that I like to use during the winter months is my Small Spray Shelter.  It is so cold here in Minnesota and so painting anything outside is just not possible.  The great thing is you can set it up inside of your house to get quick little projects done.

Step 2

I recently challenged myself to make a tablescape for Christmas with as many Cricut made items I could.  I started crafting away with my Cricut Maker to make different items like placemats, chargers, place cards and napkin rings.

Step 3

I started by making chargers out of chipboard.  I found a design I liked and set my Cricut Maker to cut.  It can take a while to cut as the Cricut makes several passes to cut through the chipboard.  Thankfully, it only took about 13 passes and I worked on other things while it was cutting. (Don’t be intimidated by the time as it didn’t take nearly that long.)

Step 4

After I cut 4 chargers I set up my Small Spray Shelter in my laundry room.  I started by spray painting the chargers with 2 light coats of white spray paint.

Step 5

After the white spray paint was dry, I grabbed one of my favorite spray paints, Rustoleum Metallic in Pearl Mist.  You can find it at your local hardware store. I have used this on many projects. It says it’s a paint and primer in one but it doesn’t have very great coverage.  I’d recommend painting your item white before you use it. Then it gives the perfect final touch!

Step 6

After the chargers were dry, it was time to set up my DIY Christmas tablescape.  I loved the detail that the painted chargers added to my place settings.

Step 7

For more pictures of my tablescape head on over to my blog, Refashionably Late.  I love to create all year round so I love that my HomeRight Spray Shelters help me continue through the cold winter months.
