Indiana Love Sign {Paint Stick Project}

Back in September I hosted a State Pride Tour with a bunch of other DIY bloggers.  It was seriously so much fun creating a project that culminates the place you call home.  I decided to tackle another Indiana project that honors Indiana farming.  One of the main crops in Indiana is soybeans.  In fact Indiana ranks 4th overall in soybean production.  Did you know that Plaid makes Soy paint?  My guess is – many of those beans came right here from my great state.

Measurement Conversion Chart

Back in 2011 I redid the inside on one of my cabinets to hang all of my measuring cups and spoons and then added in a vinyl measurement conversion chart above that.  Between these two projects I have gotten over 177,000 pins and those two posts continue to be in the top 5 pages visited on my site each month – two and half year later.  So I thought I would revisit it. To this day the cabinet looks exactly the same, and I have not lost one measuring spoon or cup – minor miracle and an organization success in my book..

Paint Stick Wreath

 No one loves a good paint stick project more than me. I have hung my jewelry on paint sticks, organized my cupboards with them, and even made a frame out of some. I have found another who adores those 12” – 14” sticks of solid wood as much as I do…(enter from stage left) Karianne from Thistlewood Farms.  She already showed you the amazing herringbone side table she made with paint sticks that you all thought was fabulous.  Today she is back, chopping them up and making a wreath.

Paint Stir Sticks Picture Frame {Mod Podge Image Transfer}

Mod Podge is one of the most versatile mediums in my craft arsenal.  It comes in a zillion different formulas and shine.  The latest Mod Podge I got to try was the Image Transfer.  Did you know you could use Mod Podge to transfer an image to fabric, wood, glass or virtually any other surface?  I also added paint sticks to create a wood frame around it.
