A project for April...

Just realized that I haven't posted since March. I thought I would share with you a little of what I've been up to. I've been adding a few new things to my booth at the vendor's mall. I started cleaning out my storage building and ran across a few things that I forgot I had and don't need anymore. Maybe someone will want them. :) This is my latest project that I made for my booth. A chalkboard made out of an old frame that I had stuck out in the storage shed. I think it turned out pretty. I put it in my booth on Friday and then posted it on Facebook at the same time. It sold before they even opened the store the next day! I was so excited! I sold it for $25.00.



This is the 'before' picture of it. It looks so much better painted white.







This is how it looks hanging in it's new home. A friend of mine bought it and put this picture on facebook. :) I think it looks so pretty. I'm ready to make more.
Hope you like my new little project....only about a thousand more to go. :) Cleaning out the shed is getting to be fun!



Hugs,

Hi Lee Laurie,
I love your chalkboard! the frame is so sweet and the size is great for a long narrow wall. You did a wonderful job creating it.
Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

I totally understand about finding things in your storage building. I've been trying to clean out my garage, storage building, my den/studio and even upstairs. My future projects seem to have taken over the house. :-)
Great chalkboard!

Joyfully,
Elizabeth Bottchen
