Striped Driftwood
Striped Driftwood

hello, hello! when i saw ginette's driftwood on design for mankind last summer i loved how she painted it with stripes. when we visited the jersey shore last summer i found one piece and thought i would do the same. well, i never got around to it, but recently figured i could use some japanese masking tape to make stripes and it worked! no muss, no fuss and the tape is totally removable, so not good for a game of fetch with dogs :). i suppose you could seal it with mod podge, but i haven't tried it. enjoy your weekend!

xo, cindy

ps the only reason i got this far with the tape is because jen insisted i use it, so thanks to jen!

Looks great! It looks like something a stylish aborigine would carry. Love the fact that you can always change it up when you feel like it. Oooh, you are always brimming with ideas.
