Finished projects

Well I got the mystery project finished

I still have some painting issues to work out, but you can't see it on the pics. I'm going to use this as a display in my booth for now.
I filled the hole in the door where leaded glass used to be (before I bought it) with an old crib spring thing. This will be great for display purposes.
Someday I'm going to bring it home and put it in my cottage bedroom (when sons move out). It will be a bed side table thingie, I'll probably hang a wreath or some architectural piece in the center at that time.
It could also be a potting bench for outside.
I loved the door, picked it up last year, with the knob and all the architectural details and the color that you see. This is pretty much what I always had in mind for it. The awning idea came last week, and then I was inspired to do the project.
I may add more 2 more hooks on the sides, to hang items from, can't decide yet. And here's the best part. I made it all from stuff I already had, didn't have to buy anything. The awning is some shutters I was given. The wood on the table top is reclaimed, the front curved piece, is part of an old headboard. The legs were some old ones I probably picked up out of the trash. The spindles that hold the awning were found in a crib on the side of the road.
Of course the door and crib screen were purchased in garage sales during the year, without any idea what I'd do with them. I love this hobby.

I have a new product in my store

These are little chalk board plant markers that I made. You can write anything
on them that you like and change it at any time. They are strong and durable, but not suitable for outdoor use.
Use them for plants, place markers, special notes or whatever you can think of. $2 ea

I promise I'm gonna get to those awards and tags.

That door project is now my new favorite RoboLady piece. It looks like it would be extremely useful.
