The Little Things

 For the Sowa Open Market I made these chalkboard sticks that you could use in flower pots to label plants or herbs. You can also use them for table numbers and food labeling at parties.

This shadowbox vintage frame was something I picked up in the fall and turned it into a chalkboard but loved how it can hold a small item on the shelf or you could throw you keys on it. I sold this at the end of the show.

This is the before

 I painted this unfinished bread box in cottage colors with stripes on the door. I used graphite paper to transfer the letters and hand painted over the letters in a dark gray paint. I slightly distressed the edges.

This is a nice wood shelf with a towel bar...also a awkward piece to get a good photo. I didn't want to put holes in the walls to hang it. I painted the first coat in a greenish blue and the second coat in a light gray. I stained the towel bar in walnut and finished it off with wax.

before I painted it

I really need to get some work done this week for painting small pieces so I'm going to force myself to work.

We had a huge three day yard sale over the weekend and got rid of a bunch of stuff. I'm still exhausted from that.
