Barn Lumber Display Rack

I needed something old and country themed to display my Country Sampler magazines in at my Booth #555 at the Peddlers Mall.

I asked my husband to fix me up something and this is what he came in with.  He took some short pieces of some aged barn lumber we had, and simply cut and pieced them together. In a type of form that he thought would house magazines.  And, in my opinion he done great!

After taking the photo, I sanded it down with some sheets of coarse sand paper and then sealed it with some craft sealer. I didn’t want anyone to get splinters while reaching for the magazines.

I wish I’d taken a photo of it finished. If I did, I can’t find it yet…..

And by the way, after being in my craft booth as a display item only, I had calls from the store that people wanted to purchase this. So I priced it for only $9.99 and my husband is now making me some more. Both to keep and use and to sell.

Halloween Labels

It’s that time again! Time to add a lil creepy to our homes. And this year I did something new. I ordered some sticky Halloween themed labels from ebay, (because I didn’t feel like going out and buying the sticker paper & buying images on Etsy at the moment.) So it was just because I wanted the easy way out, or I’d have taken the time to do so. lol.

I made a lil box of things with labels to go in my Peddlers Mall booth as well. Here they are after I used what I needed, I packaged the left over labels up for sale in my booth also. So people can put them on what they want, if they don’t like my pre-made items.

As you see, they are just basically pre-made stickers with cute Halloween themes. That’s it. Ready to stick. Just find an object to put them on. Here’s some more pics of how I used them below on an old medicine bottle, can of beans and a can of tuna. I just took off the original labels and stuck them right on.
 
And here’s a little display I made on the front porch. Note the cute little barn wood cabinet that my wonderful hubby Greg made! Gotta love a crafty man! 🙂

I love these labels. So simple but they add a unique look for my decorations. I need to go snap some pics of the yard and area my husband decorates. I may add some later on, if I can remember.

Happy Crafting!

Primitive Barn Wood Stool

I had my husband cut the design that I sketched out, out of some old barn wood lumber. He done a great job with it. I then stenciled on an old black crow to give it a more primy look. I just love it. But I have to admit, I just about love anything made out of old recycled barn lumber!

Primitive Tool Box

I drew out a sketch of another old looking toolbox that I wanted my husband to throw together for me. And he did. I just love it! I kept one for myself to store Country Sampler magazines in down in the living room. And the other one, pictured above is for sale in my Peddlers Mall booth.

Primitive Barnwood Stool

I asked had my husband cut the design that I sketched. He used  some old barn wood lumber I have saved for my crafts in the “prim” designs. He done a great job with it.

I then stenciled on an old black crow to give it an even more “prim” look. I just love it. But I have to admit, I just about love anything made out of old recycled barn lumber!

PRICE: $14.95 SOLD in my Booth #555
