Shabby chic rag valance. Just tie fabric scraps to a curtain rod.--perfect for kitchen and small windows. Could use burlap and lace for something more formal too. But this would be fu. For a laundry room!
I took a pile of old pallets and some scrap plywood and turned it into an indoor recycling separator! Total cost to me, $4.50 for the lid hinges plus the cost of the nails and screws which I already had lying around. It took awhile for assembly and sanding but it looks great after it is all done. I used a wood burner to label the holes in the lid for the final touch.
I use these in the coat closet to organize gloves,mittens and scarves. In the bathroom linen closet, using a row for each family members health and beauty products. In the hall linen closet for first aide supplies. They're also great in kids rooms for small toys like barbie dolls and their accessories or Matchbox cars and such.
Take a picture of your child, print as 3x5 or wallet size (depending on the size of the pot) in black and white on regular printer paper. Then paint the entire pot (inside and outside) white so that any empty space won't be as obvious. After several coats are dry, modge-podge the pictures onto the pot. Once everything is glued down well, spray the whole thing down with some clear acrylic spray to remove any stickiness
Print off any picture you want, spray paint a piece of wood black, and cut the picture to match the size of the wood. Using Mod podge coat the wood then lay the picture on top. Once it has dried thoroughly, use sandpaper to rough up the edges, then put a layer of mod podge over the picture. paint some eye hooks and use pretty ribbon as a hanger and voila!
