Two New Projects with Rustic Coat Hooks

Rustic Kitchen Sign with Hooks & Old Sign Stencils
I got a few great weathered boards from my Junkin Friend Jodi, with the idea in mind to make a sign with rustic hooks and a rustic drawer handle, and Funky Junk Donna's  fun "Farmers' Market" stencil from the Old Sign Stencil Line   I used her stencil with white acrylic paint and a pretty dry bristle type stencil brush, with a pouncing action.  

I then brushed on a coat of water based "Polycrylic" protective finish in satin.  This also darkened the wood and made the white lettering pop.  

The cutting board/biscuit cutter pot holder project on the left is now for sale at my shop as well as this sign with hooks.

Re-Purposed Window Frame Earring & Necklace Holder

My youngest daughter found a jewelry holder on Etsy that she wanted to order and emailed me the photo.  I told her WE could make one just like it, or maybe even better.

 I had an old window frame from a garage sale that I had purchased for 50 cents.  The size was great.
My daughter gave the frame a couple of coats of Fusion Mineral Paint in Casement.

Up-Cycled Thrift Shop Paddle

Remember my thrift shop paddle purchase from last week.  It had a restaurant menu decal on it.
