Things I Make

Today I’m going Kelly’s Korner  for this week’s Show Us Your Life.  The theme for today is things we make or sell. Since I don’t sell anything, I thought I would share a few things that I’ve made.  I only make things that I love and want to display and/or use in our home.  This Ballard Designs inspired seagrass lampshade is a perfect example!  In this picture, it was in the foyer but I made it specifically for the office which isn't quite finished yet.  To see how I made this shade from a placemat, click here.  
One of my favorite things are the seashell chargers I made. You can see how I made them here.  This is a tablescape that I used them in.
Here are my square rope chargers.  They were super easy to make.
My Pottery Barn inspired dispenser tags that I have used quite a few times over the summer.  You can see them in the picture below on the glass canisters.
Here’s a really easy project….do you see a theme here?….easy!  The EAT artwork!  It’s a little different from my normal d├ęcor but I like it!
My coastal art is another favorite…
This is a piece of art that I made for my china closet using Civil War utensils.  To see more, click here.
This is my most recent project that I’ve posted, a dry erase calendar for my office.  This is the first piece of a memo wall that I’m working on.
Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I love this dry erase board. I have been thinking about something out of the ordinary I can do for my kid's "control center" - and I just found it. Thanks for posting.
