Black and White

I was finishing up a few projects today that are going to the craft show with me next weekend when I realized everything I was working on was black and white.
 I found this little triple frame at a thrift store for 50 cents.
It said Halloween to me so I painted it black and added the word BOO printed on old book pages.
These are more thrift store finds.
I discarded the three drawers with the wire fronts from the little cabinet and then painted it white.  I painted the the inside of the loaf pans white and the outside with black chalkboard paint.  A new storage piece for small items.
I worked on some more spindle spider webs (project posted last Sunday).
I put the finishing touches on more of these little guys (tutorial posted here).
And I painted wood blocks to create more of these picture stands (tutorial posted here).
Finally I cleaned up this enameled metal piece that I purchased at an antique store this week.
This is a pretty large piece and was originally the back part of a vintage stove.

I'm taking it to the craft show with me to display the magnets that I'm selling.
This is just a small sampling of the magnets I've made.
I should be able to fill this piece for the show.
So that's my black and white project weekend.

I have a lot to finish before the show next Saturday so you probably won't be hearing from me much this week.  
Wish me luck!

Jane

  2. Great ideas ! I've just started chalkboard paint projects, my best idea so far was to spray paint (chalkboard black) an old watering can and make it into a halloween decoration.

    Questions? Where? When?

  4. I like them all..you did a great job! But, I really love the loaf pans for drawers. I think that is something I may do soon. I find old loaf pans at the thrift store all the time and never buy them because I don't need them...but I think I do now!
    Thanks for sharing! (love the Boo photo frames too!)

  49. Hi Jane. Love the cabinet/loaf pan idea (as I do all of your ideas)! I was wondering if you would mind if I shared a photo or two from this post on my studio solutions blog? I am already sharing the post but think the photos entice followers to check out the corresponding blogs. The photo would link back to your blog of course. Please let me know if that is OK...
