Don't Pass Them By!



Hard to believe that just this morning, this little charmer...



looked like this...


I want to encourage you to look at these wooden shelves,
baskets, bowls, signs, etc... as diamonds in the rough!

With a little help, they can be turned into such great pieces!
This one had no imperfections, and I immediately
envisioned it with touches of French inspiration!

I whitewashed it, scruffed it up a bit, glued on
the little birdy, and added some goodies!
Easy peasy!!



Not convinced that it is just that easy?
It really is!!

But if you'd rather buy it than try it,
head on over to the shop and grab this
little beauty for yourself!!

Hope you're having a fabulous weekend!

I am making acorns and pumpkins for a shop
in Frisco, Texas called Rustica Designs!

Woohoo!!!  Too much fun!

Have a glorious Sunday!
And remember that a happy heart
is a thankful heart!!


Hugs,

It's great! Your ideas give me pause when I see ugly wooden items in my thrift store. Thanks for inspiring me to look beyond the ugly 80's country pieces that everyone is dumping. They can be re-purposed into something lovely!

I absolutely started looking at wood pieces with a different eye for the past couple of years now, Becky! It's amazing how great they can look with a coat of paint!

Frisco? That was just around the corner from my home in Plano...cool! It's such a sweet little town. (I'm sure it's grown a lot since I lived there.)

You are such a creative woman. It's wonderful that others are seeing that. I am so happy for your success!!!
