here is a little project from last winter 
so if you missed it i thought i would share again...

i love birch trees
and love to use them around the house 
during the holidays

here is a simple and "free"
way to decorate your door with birch
1. go on a hunt for a
piece of birch tree in the woods
( if there isn't birch where you live
you could use any kind of tree
and spray it white)
2. saw in half
3. drill holes in the top
4. drill hole in the back
for hanging
5. sneak into neighbors yard
and clip greens because
you don't have any
6. put the greens in the holes
on the top and hang

easy peasy!

i found this old door in the barn
used some remnants of graphite chalk paint i had
and gave it a little love...
 distressed him a bit
 and found him a new home in the den...
cost: $0.00
time: 20 minutes
easy peasy love.

finally... i finished a furniture piece!
painted in paris grey chalk paint
then beat up to perfection

some of the wear and tear is original
and some inflicted by yours truly

i really wanted this piece to look like
it was just pulled from the back of a barn

i think it looks as if
it could have been
a work table at one time

it's for sale in the shop
