Two Board Organic Coffee Stenciled Sign

April 08, 2021
I found two pieces of scrap wood in the garage.  One piece was 1" x 6" x 16 1/2" and the other 1" x 6" x 19".   The boards were attached to each other using two Zinc Plated Steel Mending Braces , and I didn't center the boards.  One was longer on top and one was longer on the bottom.

Repurposing A Dollar General Family Photo Collage Frame For Flower Garden Photos

April 05, 2021
  I found this tag shaped photo collage frame at Dollar General .  It was priced at $5.  It's actually a nice frame.   When I upcycle some dollar store items, I do it because I want the item to be MY style or meet MY needs.  In this case I wanted to use the collage frame for flower garden photos and not family photos.


Thrifted Perpetual Calendar Repurposed As A Letter Board Bible Verse Sign

April 02, 2021
   I found this wooden, perpetual calendar at a Goodwill shop in the Twin Cities.   Hand painted wood pieces for the months, holidays, and weekdays are in the baggie. I just repurposed it for the second time, because the truth being told, the first project was not very popular on my blog or Pinterest.  I couldn't sell it either.
