DIY Chalkboard and Chalkboard Paint

Looking for "a little something" to give someone in your life (neighbor, teacher, friend) but don't have lots of money to spend?  Look no further - I have an easy and inexpensive gift idea that you can make yourself!

This Christmas chalkboard is just the thing, and will only cost you a few dollars and a short amount of your time. It all begins with a beautiful silver tray from ... Dollar Tree!

The Little Extras on the Window

use for old windows

In my last post I shared with you the old window  that I rehabbed and repurposed into a beautiful message board. Now I would like to show you the "little extras" that I made at the last minute that added so much to the final look and function.

Making an Old Window Useful and Beautiful

Window rehab

Many of my friends know I have a love for trash picking.  They may laugh about it most of the time, but when needing a special gift for someone, guess who they call?

Our sweet friends, Laura and Ken, are leaving us in a few weeks to begin a new life in ministry.  Our mutual friend, Stacey, called and asked if I would turn one of my "dumpster dive" windows into something special for them to remember us all by.
