BARN LUMBER DISPLAY RACK


I needed something old and country themed to display my Country Sampler magazines in at my Booth #555 at the Peddlers Mall.
 
I took some short pieces of some aged barn lumber we had, and simply cut and pieced them together. In a type of form that he thought would house magazines.  And, in my opinion it’s ok!

After taking the photo, I sanded it down with some sheets of coarse sand paper and then sealed it with some craft sealer. I didn't want anyone to get splinters while reaching for the magazines.

I wish I'd taken a photo of it finished. If I did, I can't find it yet.....

And by the way, after being in my craft booth as a display item only, I had calls from the store that people wanted to purchase this. So I priced it for only $9.99 and it sold immediately. 

Here is a photo of the second one he made:
I loved the first one better, but with old barn lumber, hardly two are ever the same.

PRIMITIVE BARNWOOD TOOL BOX

I drew out a toolbox design and had my husband cut it out for me.
Just the two ends that are kinda shaped like a front of a house, two sides, just rectangles, and then the flat bottom.

The handle was a little tricky to get it in there.
We used a tobacco stick, just cut it to size, and had to drill two holes in the ends to hold it.

After he put it together, I gave it a little detailing along the edges with black paint, to make it a lil more rustic.

Then I stenciled on the words and stars with some basic craft paint from WalMart. 
The stencils can be found on eBay just by searching for "primitive stencils."

I just love it.

If you like the Old Crow Stool behind it, you can see that post here.

PRICE: $19.99 SOLD in my Booth #555.
Thank You!
