I picked this up at Home Depot about a month ago................I think it was 7.99
First I stained it.................and then I made a couple of signs out of shims................
I dry brushed them with some white chalk paint - and than used stencils and a sharpie for the rest
I simply attached it with binder clips
The stain took to it so beautifully
It'll sit on the washer or dryer - I'm going to get another one to put castors on for magazines - but in the meantime we decided yesterday that we'd go for an impromptu ( how's that for a fancy word - I know I know - what a command of the English language ! ) picnic so I decided to quickly turn it into a picnic basket
John says - What in God's name are you doing?
Suzan says - Taking photos for the blog
John says - Sometimes I think you try to outcrazy yourself from day to day
Suzan says - WHY?
John says - What are you - 5 years old?
Suzan says - But today's the day that the teddy bears go on their picnic !
Suzan says - If you go down in the woods today - you're sure of a big surprise - if you go down to the woods today - you'd better go in disguise !!!
John walks away - shaking his head -
John says - C'mon Soda - Mommy's losing her mind again
Suzan says - Wait !!!
Suzan says - You forgot your disguise !
Suzan says - Can I take a pic of you in yours?
John says - Buzz off
Well I don't have a bee disguise - so these will have to do I suppose.................
I'm the foxy fox by the way..................
Now excuse me - I have to work on releasing John's inner child .................it's gotta be in there..............
Have a wonderful Monday one and all !
Happy Labor day !
( Ashley just may go INTO labor today now that I think of it ! )
