One, Two, Three...Let's Get Started!

Welcome! This is the first post of many to come to inspire me to get more things done! I started with this quick project for motivation.

My daughter was looking for something at the thrift store the other day and pointed out this letter, bill holder. It was only a dollar, but I didn't buy it at the time. However, with a few new ideas in mind I decided to pick it up today.

Here is a photo of the holder before I started.


I was going to use chalk paint but decided on flat spray paint to cover the wood smoothly. I found some numbers I liked and printed them out then transferred the numbers onto the surface by rubbing chalk on the back of the paper.

Once I got the numbers painted, I sanded it so it looked worn. It will be perfect for my craft room!


This was a fast project and a great way to begin my new blog! I hope you will join me for more projects under the Big Sky!
