 Today, I’m absolutely thrilled to have another fabulous guest post here on View From The Fridge!!  Amy from Delineate Your Dwelling is here with a fun and easy project!! Amy is one of my all time favorite bloggers, and I just love everything she comes up with! I could go on and on about her work, but I’ll save that for another time (think Friday … Hint, hint). Anyway, for today, I’ll let Amy take it away ….

Hello View from the Fridge readers!  I’m so excited to be guest posting here today while Katie takes a little tiny breather after welcoming baby number three onto the scene.  I’ve seen these blocks around Pinterest and am always drawn to them.  So, today I’ll be share how to create your own Painted Geometric Blocks!

Supplies:
Package of Wooden Blocks (mine are from Hobby Lobby)
A paintbrush
Various acrylic paints

I’ve seen blocks like this on Pinterest and my geometric loving self has been ANXIOUSLY awaiting the moment I could go crazy on the project!  I started off using a pencil to lightly draw in my lines.

By the time, I moved to the next side, I was just free handing it.  (Note, to keep all the blocks perfectly lined up on each side, Once done painting, turn all blocks in the same exact direction. Otherwise, your pretty patterns will never quite match up correctly.)
Who would have guessed?  I am completely in love with a pink and orange combo!

Some sides I painted very simple and after they dried I used a white paint pen to add more pattern.  You will see below, that I added simple crosses to these white, gray and aqua blocks.

      My boys would just love these, too. They’re bit hard on toys, though, so I’d probably keep these on display above kiddo height! They’re just too pretty! Thanks for stopping by, Bernadyn! Have a great week!
