Functional Wall Art



 I was bored and alone one I decided I needed to make something, but what?  I went into my garage to see if there was anything I could find to make and I came across this. 
 I then got my husband's saw out and made four cuts to frame the laddace.  I don't know how to use the nail gone (yet!) so I used nail glue for the crown molding.
 I painted black

 I painted white (picture not shown).  Let dry and sanded down the edges to let the black show.  I had Fleur de Lee door knobs inside a drawer and thought they would be perfect to go on my project.

Now, I use it to hold backpacks and coats.

Christmas Mantel

I love decorating for Christmas.  It makes my heart leap just thinking about it!  If I had two 4ft Nutcrakers for each side of the base it would be perfect. 

My wooden soldiers are from my grandmother.  Priceless.

My Daughter's Room Part 1

All of my daughter's bedroom furniture are hand me downs.  I love everything except her room is not cohesive.  I need to make her a princess room! 

I found a steal on Craiglist and this became my inspiration!

I primed and spray painted them black.

I am still looking for a fabric we like and next I am going to make tassels to hold the scarf framing her headboard.

Door Sign

I made a door sign for my niece's new room.  I found a wood wall sign at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section for $3.00 and I already had letters I bought at the dollar store, plus I had butterflies, and paint.  Not bad for less than $5.00!
