Under My Umbrella-Wood You Like To Craft?

Hello!  It's Melinda from over at Under My Umbrella.   I love the amazing Crafty Sisters and I'm happy to be here to share my What Wood You Craft? Project.  I think the first project is beautiful and really I didn't want to change it too much.  My kitchen window was in need of a little spruce up.  Here is what I came up with...

Yay!  Perfect for Mother's Day because it makes me happy.  I love simple projects that everyone can do.  All I did is take some old moulding someone gave me and cut it to fit my window.
I used Gorilla Glue to hold it all together.  The water bottles added the extra pressure as it dried.

Sand your rough edges and then spray paint the box.  I used Krylon's Heirloom White.  I let it dry... which for some reason is really hard for me!  I always want to get to the next step!  After it is dry, if you would like, you can sand it up again for more of an antique look.  I also took my brown ink pad and inked it up.

I added some flavor to my jars by hot gluing some ribbon around the tops and weaving burlap in the spaces. 

There you have it...my version of the the project! Pick a spot in you house that needs a little beauty and put this project there.  It will make you happy!

Hooray Melinda!  Love this!!!  That molding is fantastic!  It's been so fun to see what everyone has done this week!  What great projects!

Make sure to come back tomorrow and be ready to link up your fabulous tool box project!  We can't wait to see what you all do!  Now to figure out how to put on a linky party.....:)

I love it! Simple yet beautiful. And thanks for the inspiration, I was going to make one for my table but my window is in much bigger need of something cute and then my boys can't climb on the table and play with it. Can't wait to make it.

Looks great. I think a few of these would look awesome on my deck. Need to get busy and find me some wood scraps. Thanks for the how to.

Oh, that is beautiful! I just love the texture from the molding and the babies breath with the burlap is a match made in heaven. Nice job! I can't wait to see what everyone else cooks up!

So cute! Was the bottom also made of the molding?

Thanks ladies :) The bottom is also molding. I'm a big fan of using what I got!
