How The Heck Did You Make That?

In The Spotlight


We would like to put you in the spot light! If you have painted, a piece of furniture, or made something creative, we would love to see it and share it.

What’s your talent? Are you crafty, can you paint murals, do you repurpose furniture, can you sew or make fun crafts?

If you’re one of those people that can take an old desk and refinish it and make it look beautiful,  create a work of art out of things that you might throw away, turn a blank wall into a master piece or repurpose recycled trash into something fun and useable, then we want to hear from you.

Here’s a couple of examples of trash to treasure projects I did.


This was literally a table I found in the trash.

This was made from leaves I found in the yard.

July 4 Boot Decor

I made these July 4th boots with paint and flowers I found at the Dollar tree.

You get to share the projects you’re most proud of and you also get to see what others have done and learn their techniques.  I know you’re dying to show it off and we can’t wait to help you.
