Freecycle is one of my obsessions. I found out about it years ago when my sister drove across town to deliver something she scooped up for my kiddos…It was this awesome freestanding basketball goal!
|8 cabinet doors in all|
Right as I was picking them up the owner walked out and asked if I would be interested in some more wood items that she left out for another freecycler that was a no-show! I
said a quick HECK YES! agreed to take the rest. I was very excited because my girls are also very crafty and always whining for me to take them to the craft store begging me for materials so this would give them a good start!
|20 or so sanded and painted project boards|
|20 or so Craft Frames|
My mind started churning up ideas like this one below, discussed over at Infarrantly Creative. There are some creative ideas out there! I have been saving 4 of the doors to replicate it and actually had the same website saved in hopes of tackling the project. Haven’t started that one yet but it’s on my to-do list…
|I HEART this one!
4 frames, 4 kids w/a crafty momma – I must try this!
So in the meantime this is what I came up with. It hangs in my kitchen and took me all of about 10 minutes to create. It helped that I had all of the items on hand already.
And I couldn’t stop there, I got our my ModPod, printed a quick saying on my computer in Edwardian Script font and glued it right on to the cabinet board. It sits in the corner of my kitchen counter and just kind of looks cute if I do say so myself!
|Not that we need to be reminded to eat around here!|
It’s raining today and we need it pretty bad so I am not complaining, but it does tend to mess up my weekly curb finds for Monday morning!
