Chair bench

My friend picked up these old chairs which where brown, ripped off the seats and cut the two center legs. Then she painted then white and made a new pad the length of the chairs together and screwed it on. Oh-la-la!!! I adore this idea!

Set up shop

Went into the little shop today and put in a whole bunch of new items! It looks so great! Ready for summer!

Trade Show!

I finished up a bunch of pieces that I had stored around and brought them all to the Trade Show this weekend! It's amazing what can fit in a 6' space....

Chalkboard sign DIY

So I don't know why I never came up with this one before, with all the adorable and inspirational sayings out there, why not have a sign you can change every day? My Dad used a Router on the edges of a 1/2" MDF board to make it look a little fancier, then I painted it with latex paint. After it dried, I applied the chalkboard paint with a mini roller which I found have a nice smooth surface rather than the paint marks that a brush left. I put on three good coats and let it dry in between coats. Then I drilled two holes in the top and used twine to hang it. Now a new saying or message every day! I also did the same to an old picture frame. I removed the glass and picture and used the hard pressboard on the back which has a smooth surface, perfect for a chalkboard. Applied three coats and painted the frame.... Put it together and now I have a cute message / list boars.
