DIY Painted Wood Wall Art

Wow.  Some DIY savvy gals just put me to shame.  While I was busy fiddling around with chalkboard paint, Janine, from Salvage Love, was making fabulously modern art with scraps of wood

When Hubby & his dad installed our hardwood floors we had a box of wood scraps leftover.  In an effort to de-clutter (and be green), we posted an ad for a free box-o-scraps on kijiji, my fav online classifieds.  Within hours some eager fella was in our driveway trying to shove the too-large box of scraps into his wee little car.  My heart will break if he did something cool like this too:

  1. I'm inspired to start searching Craigslist daily for wood scraps and make one of these for myself. Too cool!

  4. Lesley, no need to kick. I was a good little girly this week and actually completed a project so I definitely have something to linky-up. Unfortunately, this rad project ain't mine, but I will link up my chalkboard knife block.

  5. Oops, I'm sorry! Shame on me for being a quick scanner! I thought you said you bought wood scraps when you got rid of some. :/

  6. No, no, Lesley, please keep thinking I came up with this genius. The world is better that way :)
