Are you tired yet to see what I make with wood scraps?
Most people just throw out wood scraps, give away through Craigslist or even just put on the side of the road.
(I have plenty myself from previous projects)
This to say, I never ever throw wood scraps away. Ever.
So here is what I saw on Happy at home's blog
And I wanted to make this with my scraps...but for a slightly different use...
So, a couple of days ago, RN got home and I simple announced: I am going outside to cut some wood.
Bless his heart, he just smiles...he knows nothing makes me happy more than cutting wood and build things.
For that I love him even more!
So here I cut down two pieces of wood (that have the same thickness 3/4") to the same length.
And cut the smaller strips for the "feet"
Liquid nails to attached the pieces of wood.
And here is what I painted this with.
Because not only I want this to be a decorative rustic table centerpiece,
but I need this to be a large trivet, to be used during dinner.
We serve food "Italian family style".
This project cost me nothing,
as we already had the paint and the scraps.
I did consider painting the wood centerpiece with chalkboard paint, so I could write a message on it, but since we had the high heat spray paint, I opted for that, as it will be a better option for holding hot pans.
