A Few Quick Projects

I made these quick projects awhile ago, but I can't find that I ever shared them, so here you go. They really are easy ones and are made with easy to find junk. The first one is simple candle sconces ( I guess that are sconces--not sure of the official definition of sconce) made from some cutting boards I found at the thrift store. I painted them up, drilled holes for the wire and wired the bottles on. I used glass rocks in them and would be great for real candles, or those little flickering battery operated tealight ones.


The other project is made from wooden recipe boxes which are always at the thrift store. I popped the lids off, painted them and screwed them into an old board. They are great catch-alls for spices, or could be used in an office for office "stuff".

  4. What fabulous ideas! I purchased 2 wooden cutting boards like that at a flea market shop we have here in GA and that's the perfect thing to do with them! Now, I'll have to find where I stored them so that I can make those and hang them in my kitchen.
    Have a wonderful day.
    Blessings,

  9. I love both of these ideas. I would like to make the one with the recipe boxes. I could use that in my craft room to hold little bottles of paint and glitter. Thanks,

  14. What great ideas you have! You're just like the Junk Market gals...you can turn anything into works of art. I'm so completely wishing I had that in me. Both ideas were so good!

    Thanks so much for the prayers for our safe travel. We had beautiful weather and the roads were excellent. And from now on, I'm going to think of God's hand on the top of the car driving us along. What a great thing to think. Thanks!
