Ever since I went to that open house last week, I have been coming up with creative ideas. I have been inspired. I'm going to try to "create" more in the new year.
I decided to chalkboard paint some white doors that I have for sale at the Carriage House. This time though, I kept one for my front porch. I stock up on wreaths that I find at garage sales. I always find a use for them. The iron candle holder was a find years ago at Autumn Drive in Woodstock for $15. I love its rusty patina.
It's simple, but the look that I was after. I painted a smaller one too and have two of them at the store now for sale.
It was such an easy project. I still have some white doors and windows that I haven't painted yet. Just in case I come up with different ideas.
My friend Cecilia has been having creative moments too. She did such a nice display of vintage Christmas ideas in her dining area.
With a lot of snow forecast for this weekend, I may just be creating all weekend.
Happy treasure hunting! There are still sales around.....
