DIY Deer Art Silhouette made with Yardsticks

Laura is back with a fantastic project featuring new and old yardsticks.  The more I get to know Laura the more I realize how much we have in common.  A love of new and found objects in our home is definitely one of them.  She created this unique deer silhouette art piece out our yardsticks.  Isn’t it awesome?  And you could totally do this with any shape – a letter, heart, star, pumpkin, Christmas tree, etc.  And she is here to give us a play by play.

Vintage Metal Magazine Rack Revamp

Well, it is official, after a year and a half my guest room is complete. I will show you the room in its entirety later this week.  ROOM REVEAL ALERT!  Woo hoo! The last and final touch was a little magazine rack I found at the same auction I got the vintage sheet that I made into a skirt, and the little chevron stool.  It was very tarnished but I loved the vintage metal look and thought it would be a great place to store my decor magazines.  Spray paint to the rescue!
