The weather here has been absolutely beautiful except the pollen has been terrible. I’m really trying to accomplish some of my indoor projects but it is hard as my attention is drawn outdoors. My “To Do List” for outdoors is steadily growing but until the pollen stops falling, I’ll just keep right on going with my little projects inside. Hopefully, in the next couple of weeks, I’ll be able to get outside.
This indoor project was a quick and easy one. About fifteen years ago or maybe longer, I purchased this calendar holder at a craft show.
In 2010, I made changes to the calendar holder again.
I added the wooden appliqué to the top and removed the wooden pegs and replaced them with black hooks.
Well, here we are in 2012, and I made changes to this poor old calendar holder again!
This time around, I removed the wooden appliqué and applied a paint and varnish stripper to the entire piece. Then I used steel wool to remove some of the paint.
Using the steel wool gave it a grayish undertone which I really like.
As the old saying goes, three strikes and you’re out! I wonder if this will be the case with this poor dear thing! It has been through three make-over's already. For now, I have it back in the kitchen.
I only hope that this next project……..
…….is as easy as the calendar holder was.
As always, thanks for visiting and hope you all have a wonderful day.
