A Message Board

Hi All,

We had a great weekend and hope you did too!

I woke early Sunday and decided to complete the million half-started projects in my garage.  I am tired of looking at these items.  Some have been in there for two days, while others have mocked me for months.

This week, I will move them all to the stores!  It’s in writing - I am committed.

So that means you will see several completed furniture transformations this week.

One small project that has been sitting far too long was a frame.

I found this oversized frame and painted her in a beige/gray shade.  It’s a new color for me and turned out to be perfect for this piece.  Distressing and wax finished her off.

We sell a lot of frames.  I always wonder what people do with them.  Instead of leaving this oversized frame empty, I filled her with chicken wire and created a message board.

Can you read the card?

It’s a thank you card from Christy that makes me laugh every time I see it!

It’s hard to see the color, but I can assure you, you will see it on many things.

This oversized frame would look great in a mudroom or over a desk.  And it’s useful!

That turned out great. I'm trying to finish a bunch of projects this week too. Good luck with yours.

New linky follower, and I love that message board! I just bought some chicken wire so I have got to get moving with a project. I would love for you to link up your project in Cowgirl up, one party four blogs.
