I have seen these all over the blogs. So when my neighbor so kindly bought me the most ADORABLE garden fabric from IKEA ...I had no excuse. I know you're thinking...what a great neighbor! She is a teacher also...no further explanation needed.
Here are the directions: http://fantasticinfirst.blogspot.com/2011/02/crate-solution.html
I promise anybody can do this! Savings Tips: Use foam for a twin mattress. I doubled the foam to make a thicker cushion. Ask your local Home Improvement store for scrap wood or be creative. I used an old shelf.
I make these pointers every year since I ALWAYS even though I say I won't end up changing my theme. I buy a pack of dowels and painted shapes...hot glue them together and you are done!
My last project to share was a freebie from a local coffee shop. It started as a plain cherry wood chair. I spray painted it black and added the dots. Although, I am not sure if I like the dots yet or not...a little too busy for me. I might paint it all black and buy a cute polka dot cushion instead. By the way...did you know that you can buy the spray paint that is for plastic and use it for wood...NO SANDING is needed! I might have to paint some more stuff!
Until next time...
