Why Wooden't I

I love Trash to Treasure Tuesday's with Kimm @ Reinvented! This week I decided to tackle a pile of wood I have been saving from when we built our house, almost 4 years ago. I gave them a light sanding. Drilled 3 holes with a 11/32 bit.
Stained them Walnut. Stained cloths pins I had hanging around.

I gave them a good podging and applied paper. Last I glued 3 clothes pins to each board. Now, I have cute desk caddies. Ooops, I forgot to put the pens and pencils in the 3 holes before I took the picture. Darn it.




There you have it. They could have been trash and now I hope they will be somebodies treasure.

Now, I will be giving the middle one on the last picture (blue and brown) to someone. Yes my bleeps (if people are peeps and twitters are tweets then you all must be bleeps.):) I am having my first give-a-way. I wish I would have chosen something lighter to ship, but when it feels right, it's right. So, to be entered, leave a comment. For an extra chance, become a follower or remind me you already follow. Thank you all for stopping by.
