Quick project #1
Did you see this clever chalkboard idea from Amy at WhisperWood Cottage?
I just loved it and decided to whip one up myself. It was so easy.
I had everything on hand so I didn't have to buy a thing.
cheapo used corkboard...check
white craft paper....check
(Amy used brown craft paper and it looks really good but I only had white on hand so that's what I used)
gray paint for bulletin board...check
clear bulletin board pushpins...check

It's pretty simple; just tear the paper, paint, let dry, pin it up and write on it.
Pretty cool, huh?
Quick project #2
This is one of my favorite pictures in blogland. It's from Tina at The Rubies' Place.
I had a tub but it wasn't white nor old nor chippy like hers. No worries, I painted it white.
I also had a couple of small ladders. So, I thought I was all set to recreate this on my porch.
I don't know if my ladders were too small or my tub too big, but mine just didn't work.
While we were at Round Top a couple of weeks ago,
we found a couple of these little plant stands.
It's white, chippy, rusted and just might work.
I put my newly painted tub on top and it looks pretty good.
I don't love it as much as Tina's but I do like it and it'll work for now.
I'm thinking I need to chip up the tub a bit and that might help or...
...paint something or write something on the front of the tub.
What do you think? Don't you think it needs a little something?
