If you live in a small space like I do, you understand the need for storage! Our front coat closet was always over stuffed. So I decided to make a coat rack. I started with a 9 1/2" by 18" piece of wood which I stained blue. For the lettering I used my cricut. For the main lettering I used the Opposites Attract cartridge, and for the small lettering I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. After I varnished the piece, my husband attached three vintage inspired hooks!
Last year my husband entered the lottery for 2 Olympic game tickets. And he got them!!! Not any Olympic game either, men's semi-final ice hockey! So on Friday February 26, 2010 we witnessed Canada winning Olympic semi-finals! What a great game that was. One away from all the way!
I absolutely loved the vibe of Canadian pride that flowed onto the streets after the game that night. People of every colour breaking out in our National anthem? True patriot love indeed!
Hi, my name is Monica and I wanted to start a blog to share my creations and my favorite things! I love to upcycle, find pre-loved items and turn them into something new, as well as make new things to love! Hope you enjoy!
