You got it! This month’s First Friday Find is about finding my lost socks. And, hopefully, your lost socks too!
I am neither artistic nor crafty, so the fact that I did something like this is shocking. I originally came across this idea while perusing the glorious world of Pinterest. It was on a blog called Stories by Me and the woman was posting it as a mod podge project. I did not complete this project doing mod podge, as that sounds too complicated for me. I simply bought the wood piece, three satin acrylic paint colors, and clothespins from Michael’s to make the project pictured above. I already had glue and a picture hook available at home.
Painting the wood was so much fun! Why is painting so pleasant? I don’t want to paint pictures. I don’t want to paint walls. But painting a simple item was somehow therapeutic. It gave me the same satisfaction that coloring or putting together a puzzle often gives me. Is it the mindless focus on a project that produces rapid results? Who knows? But it sure was enjoyable!
Putting the project to use was the best part! I was actually excited to do my wash the day I hung it up to see what socks would find their “sole mates.” Two of the socks found their match and I got oddly giddy.
May you find the same joy that I did in creating this super easy and fun project in an effort to get a handle on all of your rogue socks.
