I have had two projects in the making for a while now and I finally completed them today. I bought the little wooden plaque several weeks ago at the thrift store for $0.59. It's hard for me to pass up anything wooden because sooner or later I'll find a use for it. I put it away until I could decide what to do with it and for now I just sprayed it a cranberry color and used my chalkboard pens (that you can use on any surface) and wrote the saying below. I can always change it later.
This next project was an idea I got from Marie at Watch The Wind Blow By. She saw these dog and cat food containers in a Ballard Design Catalog for $49 each. She told us how she got a large popcorn tin (like you see at Christmas) and spray painted it and made her own. On my next trip to the thrift store they had two of those popcorn tins for $0.79 each. I bought both of them. I don't have a dog but had to make one to hold my cat food. This one didn't come from Ballard's but it cost less than $1.00!!!
