Procrastination Central

So, Friday afternoon rolled around and I had to have 2 projects
completed to donate to the young women in my church
for a fundraiser.  I had to drop them off at 3:00
I started this about 2pm.  AHAH.  I'm so bad...
First of all, this is what I found at the DI earlier in the week;

CUPBOARD DOORS  They were $1-$3. I grabbed a huge stack
and then went back and grabbed some more

The bigger pieces are too heavy to hang on the wall

So, I had my brother cut out the middle:

I had this beautiful frame.

Painted my fav color, Cottage White

Antiqued with glaze - That always covers the crappy paint job. 

Today's paint job had a little 18 month old bum shape in the corner.  Oops.

I bought some chicken wire at Cal Ranch.  It was 100' for $15.  It will probably last

I cut to fit and stapled on the back of the frame.

I glued a few orange flowers in the corner for some color.

I used clothes pins to attach the pictures.

If I did it again, I would also paint or cover with paper the clothes pins
for a little more color. 

The girls were able to make $30 from it, so I was happy!

I also took this magnet board. 

I bought it at a yard sale.

Spray painted for a fresh look and
put in a new ribbon to hang

Add a few cute magnets and another $15 for camp!  Yeah
