It's bad!!! Ha! In a good way. Some of my boards include "If I Had a Big Barn" which includes such cute little farm animals… I don't want to have to go milk a million cows twice a day, but a cow, a pig, a goat, and a sheep would be so cute!! LOL
(Until I'm shoveling poo out of the barn in -30 degree weather… that wouldn't be so much fun.)
Another one of my boards is "Thing for Deb to Make." It is a subtle hint to her of things that I LOVE that she can make for the shop...and then while she's at it, make a second one for me! Ha!
Ivy was being a creeper in all of the pictures,
so I just included her in a couple.
This week, I showed her a picture on my board of a little wooden carry-all that I thought was adorable. It was from one of the blogs that I follow. You can see the original post HERE. Elizabeth's hubby gave her a gift card to her favorite antique mall and she picked out a cute little french fruit crate. I LOVED it, too…. SO…. Deb chose that as our Trashed Tuesday piece this week! (I'm still waiting on her to make me one!!! - Hint Hint)
Here is the original tray:
I took a picture on Deb's phone so she would have this as a sample to go by!!! She started by using some scrap wood that is in our basement at the shop…
She actually had to rip boards down with the table saw to get them to the right width. She didn't have the right sizes so she had this extra step…
After air nailing the correct sizes together… and making a special handle by cutting around an appliqué to get a more custom looking piece, she came up with this….
I do have to say that Deb isn't a fond lover of things that she makes. This was no exception. She is very critical and always thinks she could have done a better job. She brought this piece home for me to take pictures and said, "I'm not impressed with this piece at all…. and Natalie said it looks like Jesus' manger." Ha!!!
Of course, I LOVE it. This would be so adorable sitting on a porch filled with clay pots and geraniums… or in the middle of a farmhouse table… what is there NOT to love?
Follow us on FACEBOOK and check out our PINTEREST BOARDS to see what Deb will be creating next!!! Don't worry, I have a few things picked out… one being this cute little box to hold my every growing collection of ironstone dishes.
(There was no link to this picture on Pinterest… let me know if this is your original picture and I will add it to my post!)
Have a fabulous day!!!
