There aren't very many of them left at this point LOL - BUT it paid off big time buying just a little too many of them !
Let's see now -
1) A plank wall
2) A faux fireplace
4) Built in bookcases
5) A CHRISTMAS TREE !!!!!!!!!!
This is a tall one - I made it for the mantel and it almost reaches the ceiling ( we have very high ceilings here )
I spray painted screws in red - to mimic berries - and to allow something for the ornaments to hang from at the same time
The long ones hold the planks onto the back post - the smaller ones are so that I could hang as many ornaments as possible
The hardest part of this project was screwing in 100 screws - the second hardest was threading the string through the minuscule holes because I couldn't find my glasses ( I thought that was spelled miniscule - thank God for spell check )
The ornaments were purchased at Michael's a couple of years ago when I made my first pallet trees !
But I ended up stencilling on them instead
When I think of the chaos of last Christmas I don't know how we lived through it - seriously -
With a kitchen down to the studs and the filth and muck and mire............and pipes breaking on Christmas Eve so that we couldn't even bathe on our way out to my daughter's
O.M.G. - it was a living nightmare - and not one I think I'll ever be brave enough to face again
( but then again - who knows - I'm not all " there " )
John won the war of the " Sled on the Mantel "
It's now in the den - I was going to put it outside ( but I was afraid someone would steal it - is that paranoid or what? ) You can see the post on my Black and White and Red all over Christmas HERE
Does anyone think I should stain it darker? I'm so close to doing it
Soda says " Enough ! "
She came out of the den and asked to be picked up while I was taking photos - she loves to be in the room when the fire is going.................it feels good on her old bones ( and mine actually )
Have a wonderful day everyone -
( & plankfully yours )
