Double F!

Do you ever have projects that frustrate you and only lead to failure?!!?

I've been trying to make a stylist and pretty white board for den.  Did you know that dry erase markers work on glass as they do on a white board?  That knowledge and this project inspired me to use frosted glass spray paint to make my own patterned glass-white board.

Ugh, the hours and issues kept adding up:
-I two broke pieces of glass before even starting...should have taken that as a sign
-I attempted to make the contact paper stencil using the silhouette machine, but that didn't work
-so then I used the silhouette to make a template from cardstock, then I used that to make the contact paper stencil the old fashioned way
-it took an hour to apply the stencil (mostly) evenly to the glass
-the two coats of frosted glass spray paint went out without a problem...but after peeling off the contact paper I was left with this

Not cool! Big fat Leigh-bellishment fail!

I give up!  

But....

I have a new plan- wish me luck!
