Thrift Shop Project and Nephews

Thrift shop project and nephews #thrift #diy #thriftshopprojectThis is about a thrift shop project and nephews.

One wonderful thing about working from home is being able to spend time with family when they visit.  This past week my sister and two nephews, James and Alexander came up the mountain for a visit.

I love working with the kids on projects.  Keeps them busy and entertained…and I can get the pile of ideas finished.

dated cordboard https://countrydesignstyle.comThis is a bit dated cork board I found at a thrift shop in January.

Then left it in a closet. :/

Stenciling #thrift #diy #thriftshopprojectThe cork board was well used.  So to hide that a Greek key was added with a stencil and craft paint.

finishing chalkboard #thrift #diy #thriftshopprojectWe took out the dated picture, cut a piece of MDF {medium density fiberboard} the same size of the glass.

Alexander added chalkboard paint to his painting skills on the MDF.
