Menu Board

I have been working on a menu board for about a month now. I found the picture below at a local consignment store and I thought it would be perfect for my project.

I painted it with four coats of brown chalkboard paint till I got the coverage I was looking for.

I played around with the saying (made out of vinyl).

Finally, I used Gorilla Glue to attach wine corks to the bottom to hold my chalk.
So here is the final result:

Teacher's Gift-Winnie the Pooh Quote #1

I needed a teacher's gift for my son to take to his kindergarten orientation tomorrow but I was short on time. I remembered an item I had seen on What are we doing today Mom? I just loved the idea so I copied it and added a little bit more detail. My sister made me revise my first version because the quote is actually from Eeyore. If you would like a copy/PDF file, you can go here.

Bakers Rack

I loved this bakers rack when my sister in law gave it to me but the color just didn't match my kitchen anymore. We put in new granite countertops and a backsplash a couple of years ago. Enter my trusty KRYLON OIL RUBBED BRONZE (yes, I think it deserves to be capitalized since it is such a great color). I took apart the bakers  rack  which was pretty easy considering the metal was screwed into the stone ledge. Add a touch of Rub 'n' Bub in antique bronze and here is the result:

Not bad, huh?!
