In my ongoing quest to lighten up the living room...
yes, this story is STILL ongoing...
I needed something to put on the coffee table.
Enter the salvaged barnwood flower box.
Last fall a very old house came to the end of its life.
for the house and barn...
but not for me.
For some time they had a sign out front for free wood.
Hey, I'm all over that!
So, my mom and I headed out and scored some nice pieces.
Super easy to make, really.
Of course, you do need a saw.
I guess you don't NEED cookies,
but they help.
I decided the length and width I wanted,
then cut my boards and used my trusty Gorilla Wood Glue
and some clamps to hold them together.
Some of the wood was damaged so we just
trimmed the bottoms to make them even.
For the bottom, instead of using some of my "good" wood,
I used a piece of scrap we had in the garage.
I just cut and glued some felt I had lying around to
the bottom so it wouldn't scratch the table.
Right now it's sporting some creamy fake hydrangeas...fresh and summery.
I can't wait till fall...I'm thinking some leaves
and bittersweet..maybe little pumpkins.
