Did you happen to see any of these offerings
from The Antique Farmhouse or Decor Steals?
I can’t help myself, when I see these things, to think that—
“I can make that for myself!”
Well, at least my own interpretation of it.
The following are just 4 examples. . . knockoffs. . .
So, before the Main St Market sale, I started thinking about some fun-cool-awesome SMALLS to make & take to sell! And I began “playing.”
I saw this Decor Steals shelf during winter. Thought it was so simple and nice— and an easy project! So I tabled it for the future.
“Hmmm-hey…remember that apron I’d pilfered off a curbie-sofa a couple summers ago…?” (I talk to myself often enough-) “Oh, yeah..!”
So now you see the root of THIS project! ; D But mine has dimension instead of being flat. And unfortunately, I never took a picture of the finished, multi-layered-painted, distressed, and waxed finish before it sold at the market! -just SO crazy…but can you picture it ?!
This was something I saw before the holidays. I liked the chicken wire frame part of the project-
–so I made my own to use as a Christmas card display! Although I made mine 6ft×1ft. Cost, $zero. I used leftovers.
After Christmas, the cards came down & school pictures of the kiddos were pinned to it. At the last minute, I distressed mom by stripping it off the wall to take with me. It sold -of course- and I need to make a new one for her now!
I loved this little catch-all box,
I played around with a couple ideas of my own. This is one of the two I made. I’ll have more to share on this project very soon and a few gOOd organizing uses for DIYers!
And my last playful copy is this zinc chalkboard found on The Antique Farmhouse.
My medium is wood
–I have a lot of scraps– so I went that route! And I made a wood template so I could make several.
Again—another project I will share soon. I’d like to break it down for you to see HOW EASY this is to DIY!
