The best part…
it was easy!
The very best part…
you have a chance to win one of two $100 gift cards to onlinefabricstore!
What does that mean?
Twenty two DIY bloggers got together to shop for projects at local thrift shops that sponsor a local animal shelter or….
they are sharing their furry animal stories or….
they are simply helping to bring awareness to the needs of sheltered animals.
and this is the shelf that I found at our local thrift shop that sponsors our local humane society.
I related to it on a physical level!
More on that in a bit!
I had very little time and wanted to make a quick chalkboard easel for the furniture painting demo I did last weekend.
Inexpensive would be good too!
So here’s what I did.
Some of the best ideas come to me in the middle of the night.
This is one of those ideas.
Perfect for anyone who uses those portable canopies.
Materials are easily available and took about 15 minutes to make.
I walking around the house and in stores looking for round items to turn into pumpkins.
Anything totally different and unique.
I think I stumbled on something different and unique…
It’s raining today in Arizona! So I thought I would sit on the front porch and write a quick Country Design Keeping post.
There’s still a ton of happenings I think you will enjoy.
Plus come “visit” and “DIY” with me “live” online tomorrow!
I have the opportunity to join a creative group of furniture makeover—ers!
I get to share their talents here with you…and learn things along the way.
This project moved me to step out from my usual style.
I had two “design assistants” for this project. They’re both two toned now!
It’s fall ya’ll!
Add…it’s the Festival of Fall Tour time.
I’m blessed to have a wonderful group of creative blogger friends that allow my “outta the box” DIY projects to join their beautiful fall inspirations.
Let me know if I toned down my DIY for this tour, okay?
Mike might think differently!
Heading out to buy clothes, shoes, groceries…ugh!
and I’m there…
This last Saturday was Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market in Scottsdale.
In Arizona it’s hard to find vintage goodness. When you do find a great chippy old window, or old barn wood you’re going to pay quite a bit.

And I’m thrilled to be included in the group of such talented and inspiring ladies.

Today I’m sharing a new project in one of my old styles for my Best of DIY.
I had an amazing idea and I needed pecans!
Not to eat…
although that sounds good too,
but to decorate the cabin for autumn.
My amazing idea started with…
I’ll be nervous! Can you hold my hand??
But it’s for a wonderful cause.
The Thrift Benefit for Sheltered Animals.
The Humane Society of Central Arizona’s Thrift Shop and Vintage Boutique will have yours truly giving furniture painting demonstrations on October 4.
I’ll need a table set up, displays, painting tips…oh my!
