Before and After - 06-12-2010

It was supposed to rain all day today, they were wrong again but it was so hot and muggy it was a perfect time to stay in the basement and work on some projects.

I had one of those light bulb moments and I was off to create.  I love it when that happens.

you might remember this 50 cent burlap bag from a couple of weeks ago... I wanted to be sure that I had just the right project for it...
afterall it is burlap and we all know how hot that stuff is right now in blogland... so I decided to contribute to the cause...

 this shelf was from last weeks garage sale finds...

I removed the back and cut the burlap to size... I pressed it first,
used spray adhesive to glue the burlap to the back...
the hardest part was getting it straight...
the lettering was the perfect size for this piece.

after I painted, sanded and stained the shelf it was ready for the big reveal...

I replaced another shelf to hang this, I loved it so much...

all dressed and ready to be adored...
(those are all old hand made cribbage boards and a handmade bat and ball)
so easy and the whole thing cost $3.50, my kind of a bargain...

Be sure to check the next post... you get a double whammy this week.

Happy Saturday all...

Hugs, Deb

There you go again Deb, amazing the heck outta me with your makeovers. Now this one is a must have and I suppose you're keeping it;) I really like it!

Love the shelf, I also love the Coca Cola crate, I love decorating with them. Many years ago my husband's grandmother gave us one that was from a local dairy farm. That is a great piece of history to have, we found some old slightly chipped milk bottles from another dairy farm and voila they are displayed together.

Deb, I can't tell you how many things I have picked up that i wouldn't have before your influence!
That shelf is so perfect with the burlap and black. Hope you don't mind, but I have to copy it. I picked up a shelf just like it months ago and haven't touched it. Now I know why. And I just happen to have more burlap sacks around too...
Great job on this. I love when you post your before and afters.

I LOOOOOVE this!! Oh how I love it. I think the burlap treatment makes your shelf so ultra unique and deliciously rustic. I've spotlighted you on the sidebar this weekend. :)

Wow! that is fantastic and would look great in my craft room :) I am loving the burlap, too. Unfortunately, I haven't found any vintage...just the fabric store kind...but it's still so much fun. Thanks for sharing a great before/after!
