Old Bed Springs, Burlap and Chalkboard Paint

What sup chicks!!!

I've been creating a few things for my booths and I thought I'd see if you approve.
What to do with a crate load of old bed springs....why make flower vases of course....
What do you do with an over abundance of burlap fabric scraps and doilies.....why make burlap flowers of course!

What to do with an old cabinet door and some chalk paint...why make a chalkboard of course.....
What to do with a sleepy cute kitty....why take a gazillion pictures of her of course!

That's it for now.  Remember to get out this week and create, make, sew, write, photograph, repurpose, cook, bake and find something wonderful and show it to us.....


I'm joining the fun over at Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays at Coastal Charm!

Very creative use for the bed springs, Sissie! I've been seeing a few different ways to use them lately. Love your fabric flowers. With all the scraps I have here I really should learn how to make these.
