Chalkboard Bar Menu

Two adorable love birds, Carli and Mason, married each other on a rare warm day in the middle of March. Dancing, cheers, and lots of love filled a barn in Rockville, VA. I was so lucky to be a part of this day. My next posts will share some of the crafts that were created for a rustic, fun, simple look.

This first craft was an old window turned into the bar menu.

Mason Jar Wall Vase

Introducing a simple, yet adorable craft! This project was inspired by someone who loves mason jars and indoor plants. With very few supplies and steps, this craft is easy and useful. Use it to house a plant or to hold your toothbrush!

Painted Dresser

It's been entirely too long since a blog post, but this one is worth the wait! Blair and her mom presented us with a beat-up dresser a couple weeks ago. It was a yard-sale steal, but the drawers had fallen apart and the wood was worn and faded. When we pulled it out of the car, it crumbled even more. But the characteristics of this dresser - made of pine with a cedar backing, dove tailed drawers, and hand-crafted - wouldn't allow us to throw this piece out. Nothing that a little sanding, paint, and stain couldn't fix!

Tassel! Tassel! Tassel!

Leather tassel key chains can be found everywhere. But for a pretty penny.

Here is a cheap and creative way to make your own!

Painted Wine Glasses

In need of a housewarming gift? On a tight budget? This is the craft for you!

You can find wine glasses anywhere for cheap (Marshalls, Target, Walmart) and if you are a true crafter, you already have a whole bin of acrylic paints. Just add in some paint brushes and an oven, and you're all set!

What you need:
- Clear, plain wine glasses
- Acyrlic paints (I have heard that paint pens work too)
- Paint brush
- Foil
- Cookie sheet
- Oven

Re-do of Old Metal Chair

Hello my fellow crafters! It has been quite awhile since my last post, but I have a lot coming your way.

I would like to share my most recent project. This old, rusty, worn metal chair has spent many days hiding in the ivy of my grandparents' backyard. I decided to give it a new life. Here's how...
