Today was one of those days where I seemed to go from project to project with no real direction.
I started the day removing the seats and then cleaning and sanding these two chairs (thrift store find for $1.00 apiece).
I did manage to get one painted (dark gray) but I'm not sure I'm loving it so I decided to move on from that project and come back to it at a later time.
I then saw five yardsticks on the workbench so I spent some time turning them into more stars. These are going to the craft show with me in October.
Then I decided to alter a cabinet card for Halloween.
Yesterday I made a trip to one of my local antique malls to pick up some cabinet cards that could be altered. There's a booth at the mall that has 1000's of cabinet cards and several can be found for 50 cents apiece....those are the one's I bought.
So with some leftover scraps of paper, buttons and a stamped phrase I made this. Nothing too elaborate but fun for Halloween.
And since I wanted to display the card, I decided to make a display stand.
I started with this old bullseye piece of molding and added a couple of nails at the top (which will actually be the bottom of the display).
I wanted this piece to stand but I also wanted it to tilt back just a little bit.
I found a wood block and cut it at a slight angle. Then I glued it to the back of the molding.
The nails hold the cabinet card in place and the head of the nail keeps the card from sliding.
I think the two pieces work well together.
Now, back to the cabinet cards I purchased......
I found some fun cards that I think will be perfect to be altered for Halloween.
I thought I would share a few with you.
Feel free to copy and use for your own projects.
If you use any of these I would love to see what you make.
