Projects I Brought to my Shop Recently

December 03, 2015

Fun Repurposed Chalk Board
 When I found an old wooden tennis racket press at the thrift shop, I added a piece of chalkboard purchased at Menards.  It is made by Georgia Pacific and sold in 2' x 4' sheets.  The hardest part of this project was cutting the fairy thick screws shorter to hold the blackboard tight.  I added a sawtooth hanger to the back.

I also made chalkboards with garage sale frames and more of the Georgia Pacific chalkboard.
This frame is painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen.

Laundry Stomper Angel
This angel was a project from last year.  I had trouble deciding if I could part with her, but I did.  She is made from a laundry stomper.  Instructions are HERE.

Metal Tray Tree Plaque
This is also a project from last year.  This tree is cut from a vintage metal tray.  Instructions are HERE.

Le Petit & Le Grand Stools
I recently made the Le Grand and Le Petit stools   See them HERE.

Rummage Sale Chair Makeover
This was a $3 rummage sale makeover.  See the details HERE.

The Marriage of a Shutter and a Shelf
This was a perfect marriage.  A shelf and a shutter project HERE.

Water Ski Coat Hooks
This is my second water ski with coat hooks.  This one I sponge painted with white and duck egg blue stripes on gray.  My other water ski project is HERE.

I hope you enjoyed looking back at some of my old projects!

Thanks for reading my blog, Carlene

  1. These are all such clever ideas and I'm sure they'll sell right away. I think my favorite has to be the water ski.
