The other day the hubby made a barrier door for the irrigation at the farm. It basically looks like a giant picture frame. But, he came home and told me it did not fit properly. I've been wanting to make some sort of wall art for a while and when he told me the bad news (for him) I was ecstatic at the thought of inheriting this big old frame to make Seaside Art. After all what sort of a home is this that is near the beach but has no Seaside Art? Well as luck would have it, he came up with a solution and was able to save his door.
Which left me with nothing!
No Frame, no Seaside Art from a hidden treasure in the dresser.
Until I spotted this piece of plywood in a corner.
Την άλλη μέρα ο σύζυγος έκανε ένα φράγμα για την άρδευση στο αγρόκτημα. Μοιάζει ουσιαστικά με μια γιγάντια κορνίζα. Όμως, ήρθε σπίτι και μου είπε ότι δεν εφαρμόζει σωστά. Θέλησα να κάνω κάποιο είδος τέχνης για τον τοίχο και όταν μου είπε τα άσχημα νέα (για αυτόν) ενθουσιάστηκα με τη σκέψη ότι θα κληρονομήσω αυτή τη μεγάλη κορνιζα για να κάνω παραθαλάσσια Τέχνη. Μα τι είδους σπίτι είναι αυτό που είναι κοντά στην παραλία, αλλά δεν έχει καμία παραθαλάσσια τέχνη; Οπως το'φερε η τύχη, βρήκε μια λύση και έσωσε την πόρτα του.
Όπου με άφησε με τίποτα!
Ούτε Κορνίζα, ούτε παραθαλάσσια τέχνη από έναν κρυμμένο θησαυρό στο συρτάρι.
Μέχρι που εντόπισα αυτό το κομμάτι κοντραπλακέ σε μια γωνιά.
I have been back in the USA for almost a year and yet I have not done a patriotic project. Oh I have a flag or two in the house. But with the Fourth of July coming up I felt it was time to create something a little special.
Today I am sharing with you how to make easy patriotic art with fabric scraps. Because the flag looks great outside, but we shouldn't neglect the interior of our homes.
It is my favorite time of the month, the International Bloggers Club Challenge. We are a group of friends from all over the world who get together every month to share our projects and discuss how things are done in our countries. Last time we shared projects for gardening. And the month before it was projects with fabrics.
This month we are going to work with wire. I always like a challenge and this one certainly had me in a whimsical kind of mood. I chose to make a unique mobile with re-purposed wire hangers.
To see what my friends have made this month scroll down to the bottom of this post.
This project came about, out of necessity. We have a spot next to our front door which is like a tiny porch, well it's not really a porch just a place to stand after you walk up the stairs to get to the door.
Anyway it was looking kind of lonely and empty... till I found this torn old rattan chair and got an idea to re-purpose it into outdoor decor and give the front of the house some curb appeal.
It is the tenth of the month and that means it's time for me to join my friends on Ten on the Tenth for another project. This time we have gotten together to share fashion and beauty ideas that cost less then ten dollars. Last month we shared container gardening ideas.
Now I'm no Fashion Diva, in fact the opposite is true. But I do know that being organized is important for all the Divas out there who need to find their jewelry pronto! Because you're not gonna get me to give you fashion advice!
But I will say this, I think it would make a fine Mother's Day gift! It is so easy to make this frame jewelry organizer.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
