Wood Tote

20131106-085023.jpg
I’m participating as a vendor in a local fundraiser/shopping event called unWINEd (how fun is that?) presented by the Junior Auxiliary of Abbeville. It’s coming up in a big hurry so I’ve been creating like mad to prepare.

Many years ago, I saw a wooden tool box at an antique store and filed it in the back of my mind with all the other ‘to make someday’ projects. Now I’ve made one WOO HOO!!

I was inspired by this post at Beyond the Picket Fence (excellent blog – check it out), and because my youngest daughter’s class was asked to donate an item to a ‘tailgating’ themed gift basket to raffle. I thought this would be a fun way to hold all the condiments for a tailgate party (ketchup, mustard, mayo, BBQ, etc); I even added a bottle opener (just in case).

Here’s some pictures of the process. I used salvaged fence pickets, cheap acrylic paint and two coats of clear coat.

Thank you for stopping by.

I’ve really neglected my blog. Between school and extracurricular activities, my girls keep me on the go. I still find time to create, I just never get pictures. I’ve made so much lately, I’m working on taking pics and writing posts stay tuned for more…

About southernflaircrafts

I am a very busy wife and mother of two beautiful little girls. I work part-time in a flexible position as an Office Administrator for a financial advisory firm; I love the work I do and am especially grateful that it allows me to be a Mom first. I love to create!! Although I think my creativity was born with my first child, before children I would not have considered myself very creative. My mind is always wandering ahead to my next project, whether it's woodworking, sewing, paitning, or crafting with my kids. I also love blog-hopping (and blogging - I'm learning as I go); sometimes I see things I know I have got to make or I see a great creation and am insprired with ideas of my own. I especially like projects that rescue some treasure that would otherwise become another victim of the landfill.
