I've also had writers block- I haven't been overly crafty lately and I don't want to bore everyone with all wedding talk, even if my sisters wedding is in 9 days! *squeal*
Oh, but you can bet your... um...you can just bet there will be a pic heavy post after the wedding :)
What I have been doing, however, is making some wooden signs. I've shown some photos of my THEN sign that I made for my sister. I also made
The apartment reeks of polycrylic, acrylic paints, wood and spray paint. *giggle*
It actually isn't that bad, but most of my painting has been done inside, sans the spray paint. This New Jersey weather lately is for the ducks.
A lot of my signs are on reclaimed wood. Pallets for days on Craigslist, my dad can get them from work, pallets pallets everywhere. They are perfect for this sort of thing.
The pallets I'm using currently were going to thrown out at the firehouse. I saved you, little pallets!
Here in NJ there are some awesome flea markets. Columbus Flea Market is a great one that I only get to maybe once or twice a year. I happened to go with a friend a few weekends ago and she found these great pieces of wood complete with hardware attached! She was yelling across a few tables at me while I was looking at piece of furniture I envisioned a great re-do on. Excitedly, I scurried over and scooped some up.
I opted not to use the hardware and I bought some jute instead. Thanks for the great find Andie!
Too bad I don't have a washer and dryer in my apartment to hang these near.
Love these next two. Too bad I don't ride either.
I don't have any beachy themed props in my house but the cowboy boot works just fine in my opinion. :)
I'm excited to share what the future holds for some of these signs.
My next thing I want to try, other than making more signs is a coffee filter wreath. That seems pretty easy. (Now that I said that, I'm going to have a hellava time with it, right?)
What have you been working on?
